Shooting 1935 Eastman 8x10 View Camera, East River, NYC

I'm a photographer who lives and works in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I shoot both digital and film. Film simplifies long exposure photography and distills my work down to the very basics. It also allows me to get my hands wet and have a bit of fun. My Sony digital camera makes digital feel a bit like film. The body of my a7 is small and it allows me to use old my old manual focus lenses - especially the fantastic portrait lenses from decades ago.

As the "Photographer in Residence" for the wonderful Sing for Hope, I document how musicians and artists give back to their NYC communities. I also volunteer as a photographer for Dave Eggars' 826NYC - a non-profit organization that mentors and teaches writing skills to 6-18 year olds from across NYC.

As a photographer and artist, it's as important to give back to the community as it is to create photographs. The work I do with Sing for Hope, 826NYC, and a few other non-profits is rewarding and enriching.

Equipment: As much as I love cameras, I only keep and use a few - a 35mm Olympus OM-1 SLR, (purchased by by father-in-law in 1971 and then handed on to me a few years ago), a Hasselblad 501cm, a 1935 8×10 Eastman View Camera No. 2D, and for digital work I love my Sony A7.
