The Hamptons: Beach Photography

Sun, sand, seagulls, surf and alliteration to boot!

Breaking away from the seemingly exclusive digital world we’re living in… I spent some time this past summer getting back to basics and shot some 35mm B&W film. Film is still amazing stuff, especially in black and white. The images are from Georgica Beach in East Hampton, Main Beach in East Hampton and Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY.

Hamptons Wedding Photography – Kris and Gabby

Arguably the nicest time of year in the Hamptons is fall. This October has been especially mild and perfect for a Hamptons wedding. More photos will follow but below is a sweet shot of Gabby waiting behind one of the oldest farm houses in East Hampton, New York. She was taking a few moments to be sure she had memorized her vows as a stiff October wind picked up catching her by surprise.


“The Murderer” comes to Sag Harbor, NY

I recently photographed an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “The Murderer” in Sag Harbor, NY.

Apologies for the delayed post as it ran at the end of August for one weekend only… It was excellent though!!!

It was directed by Tucker Marder and starred Christian Scheider, Madeline Wise and Britt Moseley.

A man who calls himself the Murderer is institutionalized for killing the technology in his daily life. Locked in his cell with a forensic psychologist, he is frequented by a daffy technological specter. The three proceed to battle over technology’s rightful claim upon our lives.
