I had the opportunity to photograph ALS patient Todd Quinn at his Blairstown, New Jersey for the Boston Globe. Quinn uses “messaging banking” technology from a new program at Boston Children’s Hospital to communicate as he loses his ability to speak. He uses his eyes to pick pre-recorded phrases from a computer.
A video produced for Xavier High School about how one family’s generosity changed a man’s life.
A few photos from St. Peter’s University magazine featuring students around campus.
Great design from the good folks at Erbach Communications.
EducationWeek needed a moody portrait of the new Newark Superintendent of Schools.
While I lugged in all my lights Mother Nature was providing me with some very cool light.
Since our window for both the portraits and the interview was very brief I decided the natural light approach gave me the most flexibility.
EducationWeek’s education photography Instagram account posted the photos too. Their account does a great job highlighting educational photography from around the country.
You can read the full story on EducationWeek’s website here.
St. Peter’s University Hospital needed a photo of a large group of doctors. Unfortunately the doctor’s schedules did not allow all of them to be in the same room at the same time.
So we decided to shoot a few smaller groups and merge them together into one large photo.
Not only was this a fun photo shoot but it was also for a good cause. The Rutgers’ Emergency Assistance Fund helps students when emergencies, like Sonya’s leukemia, strike.
One of the challenges of corporate photography is capturing candid moments of executives.
A good technique I’ve found to capture emotional candids is to wait until a group of executives is done talking and the group is starting to break up. Often people will laugh or joke around at this moment.
This exact technique worked perfectly here as a healthcare CEO was laughing with a group of people as the company opened a new facility in New Jersey.
St. Peter’s University Hospital produces a quarterly magazine the showcases. They are a great client because they encourage collaboration with the photographer.
Here we needed to show a new sinus procedure that the hospital is providing to patients.
A bunch of strobes and grids made the operating room look dramatic.
One of my favorite things to do is blend in and capture corporate events naturally.
Here’s a good example of candid images from a corporate meeting in New Jersey.
It was a pleasure spending some time chatting about the theater, movies and television with Montclair playwright Richard Wesley.
Oh yeah, we took a few photos too.
Thanks to the nice folks at Children’s Specialized Hospital for the cover of their quarterly magazine.
Those are some good looking pork chops at Sami’s Land and Sea Restaurant in Berkeley Heights.
I recently photographed an another editorial portrait assignment for the good folks at NBC News.com
Aquiles Sanchez was the subject of a story about the the economic progress of Latinos.
The Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen is stunning, both inside and out.
Vail Mansion, built by the first president of AT&T, stood empty for many years until Chris Cannon opened his new restaurant.
One of the restaurant’s main features is the glass enclosed kitchen at the top of a huge staircase.
