I had the pleasure to spend the day at what is now a historic NYC location/restaurant, Indochine with the beautiful and talented Nicole Trunfio.. We shot this cover story inspired by the history of Indochine’s celebrity nightlife past for the June cover story of Scene Magazine..
special thanks to Indochine, Scene & Nicole Trunfio
Not long ago, I received a call asking if i was available to travel to Isreal with Matisyahu to take photos for his new album, Spark Seeker (out in July). I wouldn’t have passed up the opportunity to visit that amazing land with such an inspirational and spiritual man.. Little did i know i would find Matisyahu to be all that i expected and so much more. a modern day man with his spirtuality tied to ancient teachings. A fun and sweet friend with a positive message.. Exactly what i needed.. We traveled from city to city from coast to coast and spent the night in a bedouin camp so we could shoot sunrise near Masada and at The Dead Sea.. Not to mention a fun night or two in Tel Aviv taking in the clubs.. i haven’t eaten hummus or falafel since.. check out his new single and download it for free
Every once in awhile comes along a fresh new talent that speaks for a generation… Lena Dunham is one of those very special artists.. A writer, director, actor and also producer.. Her first film Tiny Furniture was a preview of the honest humble perspective that Lena brings to the big screen.. Now with her new show (one of my favorites), GIRLS.. on HBO, Lena further invites us into her world and a world here in NYC that not only Girls can relate to.. I shot these portraits of Lena not long ago.. She is as sweet, sincere and lovely as you would imagine… Keep it up Lena.. ur killin it!!!
The Big Pink for Deleon Tequila & Nur Khan Sessions
The other night i went down to the Electric Room to shoot some portraits of The Big Pink. I had not seen Robbie in quite some time and this was our first time takin some pics together for a quick session and private show..
On friday i was asked to run down to The Bowery Hotel for soundcheck to take a portrait of Ingrid for my friends at The Last Magazine. Ingrid is a unique collaboration created by Swedish musicians Lykke Li, Miike Snow, Peter Bjorn and John, and Teddybears. I had photographed many of them in the past so it was nice to see them all together and then nice to hear them all perform together.

When i went to meet up with the Kills in Kansas City to shoot Alison for the new Lovecat Cover.. of course i took pics of soundcheck, lunch at frans diner, backstage before the show and the show.. here are just a few personal pics..
I was honored when Lovecat asked that i join the ranks of Ellen Von Unwerth, Richard Phillips & Mr. Brainwash to shoot the fourth cover of Lovecat’s Music issue. I set out to Kansas City to meet up with my very close friends, Jamie & Alison (The Kills) and took pictures of Alison in their tour bus, and at the very old and very large venue that they would play that night.. Was great to be reunited with my friends and a great honor to put Alison on their cover…

The lovely people at VS magazine called and asked me once again to shoot the Tendencies section of their new Intimacy issue.. They asked if there is one particular model that I am close with that would be appropriate.. of course i had to look no further than my dear long time friend, Judith Bedard.
VS Intimate issue hit stands today…
Yesterday my dear friend, Natalie Joos, came over for a portrait session for her widely viewed blog, Tales Of Endearment… Natalie has been a big part of my career and has helped me with casting many many times (including my book, Flip)… I am very proud of her for her success with her fashion blog and proud to be a part of it…
