Wanted to finally get this slideshow posted before the year that is 2014 actually ends in a few hours. It goes without saying that it’s been some kind of year for local, national and international news, sports, feature and documentary photographers working all around the world and some of us right down the street in […]
Brought my “A – Game” to Washington, DC yesterday as I just knew that I needed to make the effort to finally get involved in documenting the ongoing demonstrations and struggle against police brutality here in the U.S. It was really good to run into a few old newspaper and agency colleagues in Freedom Plaza, […]
The new job, and a few trips into New York. Here’s a brief look at what’s caught my attention the past 2 months or so… ~cg.

Army players reach to touch the plaque bearing a quote from General George Marshall on the field prior to their game against Stanford in Michie Stadium at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY on Saturday, September 14, 2013. The plaque reads, “I want An Officer For A Secret And Dangerous Mission. I […]

“Winter in America.” It’s been a week since musician Gil Scott-Heron has passed away at 62. Heron was certainly much more than a poet and songwriter whose infectious tunes just had a way of staying with you, even after nearly 30 years. He liked to call himself a “bluesologist” and I’d heard in one interview […]
“These Children of the Street…” It’s never too late to go back and carefully re-examine your work and do a re-edit, if you will. Good images & good stories will stand the test of time. This brief multi-media story is a piece I’d shot on my own dime back in the Spring of 2006 in […]
There’s still something sweet about arriving early to a venue, knowing you’re there working a big game, no matter what the sport. Throw in some of these newer stadiums and arenas where even local high school games are contested nowadays, and when weather conditions are favorable – it’s just about nirvana for me. I’ve written […]
“…Baby, I’m from New York… Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, There’s nothing you can’t do, Now you’re in New York…” -Alicia Keys. NFA vs. Middletown. Kingston vs. Minisink. Mix in the possibility of a Newburgh – Mount Vernon rematch in the NY State Quarterfinals at West Point’s Chrystl Arena in mid-March. What a […]
*”Oh No, Not another look at a photographer’s “Best of 2009″ post out here in cyberspace…!” Yea, I figured it was time to get around to sifting through my favorite 10, 20, uh, probably more like 40+ favorite images from the past year. Hey, It’s my blog, right…? After a bit of teeth-clenching, sleepless nights, […]
Last year on this day I photographed the first Eid al-Fitr prayer in a new mosque here in the Middletown, NY area. Wanted to revisit that piece here again: -cg. *(Click in the text above or click the arrow at the lower left of the player to start the slideshow. Enable full screen viewing by […]
Personal Work. NGO volunteerism. Self-assigned projects. Whatever you want to call these initiatives that we photojournalists undertake throughout our careers, I wanted to again look at one of my ongoing projects that I’d previously posted to the website last year, and figured it was now time to post it here as well. In combination with […]
Now that the software for producing multimedia pieces for the web have become much easier and user friendly, I’m going to occasionally add some of my personal projects here on the blog. Who knows, I may just get around to doing a VO (voice-over) slideshow or two discussing my equipment & shooting style for various […]
