Passion Projects & Passion People

How to select a project? It's different for every designer, and the answer shouldn't be to take all of projects that come our way. Designers should know who they want to work with and what to seek out. For me? I look for passion first and foremost. If a client has passion for his or her business, [...]

American Gold Cup

Admittedly, I would see horse riding and think, "So what? Was it that hard? Doesn't the horse just do most of the work?" Yes, I knew that was idiotic. I knew I was wrong. Like any great sport, achieving excellence is immeasurably hard. But to see it for myself in person really hit home how [...]

Wedding Night, September 2018

It's always a fun and beautiful time working with the great team at Le Grand Entertainment. And I am proud of the logo, branding, and website design I did for them. From graphics, website design, and photos, I covered the whole shebang. These photos were captured in September 2018 for the Le Grand guys to [...]

Party in Harrison

I had the pleasure of enjoying a lovely evening with wonderful people in Harrison, New York. For this event, the challenge was to capture beautiful images in dreadfully dark lighting. For me personally, the usage of flash is at times necessary, but should be used sparingly. It is far more dramatic and appealing to counter [...]

Bogota and the Great Lie of Photography

Photography is a lie. There is no truth to it, only the selective drama of its author. If he wants sun, there will be sun. If he wants pain, so be it. Photography then is nothing more than the extension of the author's political or social bent, and anyone who argues the honesty of a [...]

Square Pegs & Round Holes

Sometimes the client and the designer do not fit. Plain and simple. It’s not a judgement of taste or style. It’s not an insult to one person or another. It’s just a fact of life. People dress differently, like different music, and have different opinions. Design is not an exception to this reality. It’s okay [...]
