Rooftop Holli

Here's Holli, the mother of those beautiful girls, Hannah and Abbi, who you've seen on here many times. I liked this shot of her on this rooftop at sunset. This was taken last week.

World Trade Center

Here are some shots I took of the Towers back in 1999. The last two shots were taken from inside the observation deck of the South Tower....and I feel they give you an idea of how high up they really were.

Lots of Shots

Been doing a lot of shooting lately. I took about 13 thousand photos in 4 good ones.

My Photography Philosophy

What I love about photography is bringing out the best in someone, and of course, the more I know someone, the more I can bring out. You get the best stuff when the subject is comfortable with you, and you with them...which is why I prefer photographing people I know. It's also why you usually get your best stuff towards the end of a shoot, because that is when the photographer and the subject are most comfortable. And yes, I also enjoy making people look better than maybe they ever thought they could. I like to give them something that they'll cherish for the rest of their lives....something they can show their grandkids someday and proudly say "Yeah, that's me."
I've realized the value of photography. Nobody ever looks back at really old photos and says, "Boy, I'm sure sorry I have these."
No, we treasure them...whether they're embarrassing or not.

By the way, the man pictured above is Denzil Smith, a Character Artist who used to work with us at Disney, and a great guy.

Ice Cream Smile

This is Lydia, daughter of my friend Natasha. When I'm photographing children, I often ask them to say "ICE CREAM" in order to get them to smile, instead of the traditional "CHEESE." But Lydia didn't give me a real smile until she GOT the ice cream.
