Photo producer, editor and portfolio consultant.
Formerly Rolling Stone’s deputy photo editor, I have collaborated with a long list of award-winning photographers to conceptualize, supervise and execute hundreds of memorable photo shoots for thirteen years. I've also helped implement the visual presentation of such top national publications as FHM, Entertainment Weekly and Details.
Portrait, Landscape and Still Life Pinholes
I use handmade 4x5 pinhole cameras made of cardboard, tape and a piece of aluminum with a tiny hole made from a pin.
In the beginning the exposure is based on trial and error, until I get to know that particular camera. Shooting pinhole teaches me patience and allows me to relinquish control (to whom i don't know!). Because each exposure can take anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes, I can’t just want the shot. I have to wait for the shot. As time passes the camera captures the subjects natural movement creating revealing and sometimes surprising images.
I have a BFA in photography and live in New York City.
