Lunch Break

Sometimes you just need to sit, smoke a cigarette and check your social media.

The Cup

For the amount people the trains shuffle back and forth between New York and New Jersey, the Port Authority’s Path Trains are the cleanest modes of transport you can get in the New York area. Also I actually really like the framing of this shot.

Friday Morning Walkabout

Shot from a Friday morning walkabout with Lorenzo Mitil who was out shooting some Cinestill BwXX around the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. Side note check out the Oculus during the morning rush hour, it’s like watching an episode of Planet Earth the only thing missing is Sir David Attenborough narrating.

New York

I was able to work with the gentleman Gloss Black who painted this mural on another mural project with the man Serringe who brought me on as a second camera which in itself is a great honor to me being asked by someone who has been honing his craft for years and would even think to give me a chance to assist him on a project. Seeing this mural on my walkabout today really made me smile and brought up so good thoughts about how far I have come on this journey with a camera in my hand.

I chase the light

Like the title says I chase the light when I’m on a walkabout. I love an area the has a large amount buildings that are close together where it chops the light up and bounces the light off other buildings, it is I my opinion the best free studio any photographer can afford.

East Broadway

This is a composite on two shots of East Broadway in Chinatown in Manhattan. Everyone takes this shot when they walk across the Manhattan Bridge and if you’re  lucky you will be able to get the shot in January and you will see the decorations for Chinese New Year, but in my opinion it really is a boring shot aside from just taking for your personal collection.

Emmanuel Reyes

I have the luck of knowing some very talented people and with that I have been giving some exclusive entry into the minds of these people. In this photo is Emmanuel Reyes a good friend and a talent in his own right who has been putting in the hours to master his craft of tattooing.

Life in a big city

Living in or around a big city like New York City even for a short amount of time is something that everyone should experience for the only fact that you will learn more about yourself in a big city then you will anyway else. I can’t really explain what I mean, but it can and will change your views real quick.

Morning Grind

Coffee, Water, Beer and not always in the order. I stopped by 787 Coffee in the East Village yesterday and I can say the coffee was good enough to make into my cabinet. A little side note, I am a bit basis towards coffee grown in Puerto Rico.

Neon Portraits with Mr. Mitil

Was out and about with Lorenzo Mitil in NYC and decided I should jump on the neon portrait bandwagon. This was meant to be a joke, but I’m not going to lie I’m digging these neon themed portraits. You can check out Mr. Mitil’s work with film photography at https://www.lorenzomitil.com/
