Always Candid Photos is a unique blend of photojournalism, fashion and editorial photography.
Inspired by the old master photographers like Weegee, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mary Ellen Mark and Margaret Bourke-White, my style is a unique combination of my photojournalist training and commercial/editorial experience.
I grew up in New York City, immersed diversity of music and lifestyles of the 1980s and 1990s music scenes. Like many Punk Rock kids before me, I started college as a regular Art Major. I discovered my passion for photography when I took an intro to photography class. Photography transported me, allowing me the opportunity to explore people and places with just a metal and glass passport, my camera. The following semester, I changed my major to Photojournalism and studied under the legendary Mel Rosenthal at SUNY, Empire State College.
Upon graduation, I went to work under a number of celebrity and fashion photographers, including Anthony Barboza, Mario Testino, and Frank W. Ockenfels III. Soon after, I pursued my passion for music and started shooting artists and musicians for clients like SONY Music, Atlantic Records, Alternative Press, and The New York Times.
Through a colleague, I was given the opportunity to photograph corporate events. Just like music photography took me to live concerts and portraits with musicians, corporate events took me into another world I had yet to explore. More events lead to weddings. In weddings I found something I had not yet seen in music or corporate events, family. Many generations coming together, and me documenting this gathering of family and friends for future generations to see. I also love the diversity of people, places, rituals, and cultures.
In my personal time, I love traveling and spending time with family and friends. I do enjoy driving and have made several cross-country road trips. Driving through New York State, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont for your event is part of my everyday routine.
I have offices in New York City and Saratoga Springs, NY. I will travel within 100 miles of those two cities at no additional charge. For other areas, message for a quote. Feel free to contact me with any inquiries or comments.
