Musician Amanda Kravat, formerly of the rock band Marry Me Jane, is a New Yorker whose career has included such great things as touring with Steven Tyler and Aerosmith and scoring movies for film makers like Eric Shaeffer. Getting some unique portraits of her in her native environment, Manhattan’s Upper West Side, was important. So we went to a roof top in the neighborhood.

Philip Earl Jones is a New York stick fighter and film maker who is preparing for the WEKAF World Championship in Hungary this month. He works out and fights with the Modern Arnis DOMOG club in Greenwich Village. He and I went to New York City’s Meatpacking District near 14th Street to take some action portraits as he practiced on the rough-hewn cobble stone streets with the sun setting in the background.

Eskrima or Kali stickfighting (or stick fighting, your choice as far as I can tell) is a Filipino martial art that focuses on weapons, but also combines hand-to-hand combat as a mode of self-defense.

Philip is also preparing to go into production of his feature film Unhinged, an action movie about a group of guys racing against evil in the streets of New York.

Photographing the wedding of a Comic Con couple is guaranteed to be a good time. From the bride and groom’s Batman and Robin socks to toilet seats over the head, this crowd had loads of fun, making the over-all experience at Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls, NY a great time.

Andre Lejeune is a triathlete and personal trainer in New York City. Early one morning, he and I met in Riverside Park on Manhattan’s Upper West Side to take action shots of him that highlighted his cycling and running, as well as some head shots for his business. If you need a personal trainer and would like to connect with Andre, here’s his Linkedin and his Facebook pages.

I included a couple of wide shots here so you can see how I lit the running and cycling photos. Simple, two light setups (three if you include the sun) to provide an edge and some contrast to the pictures. Lifestyle portrait photography is easily my favorite type of photography because it lends itself to open creativity and a generally relaxed approach.

This couple said their wedding vows in Long Island City’s at Saint Mary’s Church, and then went to The Water’s Edge restaurant for a spectacular view of New York City for their reception. Family portraits were all taken at the church before we left to the party. I was especially appreciative of the box if cigars the groom gave me as a tip at the end of the evening.
