Guest Speaker at Boston College High

I was asked to speak to Patrick McAllister's Digital Photography classes at Boston College High School today. I had a blast. The students were great and full of wonderful questions. I brought in some of my older cameras like my Speed Graphic, my Hasselblad and Leica to show them the evolution of photography equipment. I told them a bit about my assignments and how I photograph. I never thought I would have such a great time going back to high school. Here a couple shots Patrick McAllister took of me while I spoke.

Warren Wins

Election day just a long day! Started with waking up early and photographing Elizabeth Warren casting her vote in Cambridge and ended later that night with photographing her celebrating her victory actually, it didn't end there, after that I had to go by the Boston Convention center and get images of sad Romney supporters leaving the venue.

Clean up Continues after Hurricane Sandy

After the elections finally passed I found a free moment to go home to New York to see the damage after Hurricane Sandy first hand. I learned to surf on Long Beach New York and knew it was a must for me to be there to photograph the devastation or else I knew I would regret no going years later. This being an important assignment close to heart I decided it was the perfect time ( or excuse) to purchase and shoot with a new Canon 5d Mark III. I can describe the camera with just one word, AMAZING!!! My parents were without power for 8 days and I brought them 9 gallons of gas, something I never thought I'd have to do, transport gas in from another state. I have become accustomed to photographing devastation but this time it was literally close to home. I was stopped twice by the NYPD (a first for me while being in the field after a major news event.) The first time was was by a bored cop who wanted to shoot the breeze about my camera gear and the second time was when a cruiser saw me walking into Breezy Point, NY to avoid the long traffic jam to get in. They stopped me to offer me a ride in, I must say the NYPD was really nice to me. Never has a hurricane been so appropriately named as Sandy. Many of the streets and homes in New York were literally layered in feet of sand. in Long Beach, NY a actual montian of sand cleared from the street was made multiple stories high!!
