“A trip to the City always results in good pictures…” April 2014


Made my way into midtown Manhattan yesterday, mainly on the continual job hunt to drop off promotional materials with editors and the ever present quick stop into B&H Photo. Found my way into Times Square and managed to make a few decent images. It’s never been hard to make pictures in New York. If it […]

It’s been a little more than two weeks since “The Turk” delivered the abrupt news that I’d be out of a job, along with three other staff photographers, and three longtime editors at the newspaper I’d worked at for nearly 7 years here in New York.

Havens (72) passes away in Jersey City, NJ on Monday. He was well known as the opening act at the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, where he played […]

“Happy Birthday, Grand Central…” February 2013


The grandest room in New York, Grand Central Terminal is 100 years old this weekend. I’ve been following the history and some of the back story of this majestic landmark structure in mid-town Manhattan, and wanted to dig out this image of mine made with the 10.5mm fisheye a few years ago…  ~cg. Passengers on […]

*”On thoughts of making the same image…” June 2012


When I was just starting my career, a senior colleague at a daily newspaper on the NJ Shore where I was a freelancer, made it a point to explain to me that, “There are no new pictures, just old pictures done in a new way…” I never forgot that morsel of guidance, so when an […]

Back in 2004, during my time as a photo-editor at the NY Daily News, I covered the first gay weddings in the country performed by a then 20-something mayor, Jason West.
