New Year, New Perspective (Literally). Times Square, NYC

Happy New Year!  After a brief, bombarded with newborn photography hiatus, I’m back to Human Stories Photography, and couldn’t be more excited to share some of the photo adventures I’ve been having (and a truly exciting new project that I’m working on…details coming soon!).  I thought it only appropriate to start the new year with one of my most favorite recent photos.  Times Square is considered to many to be the heart of NYC, but in truth, I usually can’t stand it.  I find it crowded, claustrophobic, and overwhelming.  Therefore, the joy that I felt being able to find a moment of peace, pictured here, simply by changing my perspective, was wonderful.  This is the first in a series of photos called “From Down Here”, and, more importantly, is a good metaphor for starting the new year.  When in doubt, change perspective.  More to come.  Happy New Year, and many thanks for reading.

Sear Sound Studios, New York, NY

A few weeks ago, I had the immense pleasure of photographing a recording session for the Mat Jodrell Quartet.  Getting to watch such extraordinary artists do what they do best in such a close, intimate setting was amazing.  They gave me total freedom with the sorts of pictures I wanted to take, and were incredibly tolerant of me invading their space, as I crawled around drums and curled around doors trying to get the shots I wanted.  I have a few portraits that I’ll post over the next few weeks, but we’ll start with this one.  The drummer, as seen through the drums (yes, this was one of  the aforementioned crawling on the floor shots) listening intently to Mat.  The ease with which these musicians listened to each other, communicated, and collaborated was truly extraordinary, and I was lucky to witness it.  For more information about Mat and his music, please visit
