The Wonder Wheel Coney Island is one of the most recognizable places in NYC and the Wonder Wheel is its most famous landmark. I love shooting at Coney, it offers many different shots and angles. You can really find some great textures and colors. THe juxtaposition between the old Side-Show Coney and the newLuna Park is fascinating.

Whenever I see a statue or a sculpture, particularly those of people, I look for the perfect angle to make them come alive. I'm lucky to live at a place that's perfect for this, New York City. Here are some shots from my series entitled Statues in the Sky.
As an architectural and interior photographer in New York specializing in luxury projects, Evan Joseph has climbed onto extraordinary terraces and exclusive roofs. After a decade of shooting skyline views, however, he went in search of an even loftier angle. Nowhere to look but up, he took to the skies.
Working closely with a pilot, Joseph shoots New York City in a helicopter at night.… Continue
Brooklyn-based photographer Joseph O. Holmes captures the magic of New York in this set he calls The Urban Wilderness. Set in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, the photos show a smattering of people enjoying a cold Winter's day. With blankets of snow covering the park's green grass, you could hardly tell that these photos were taken in a city.
If you were in New York City when it got hit with last year's crazy snowstorm, you'll know that the streets looked like something out a movie. For Williamsburg resident Henry Hargreaves, they resembled the famous ice planet Hoth from Star Wars. After being snowed in for a very long time, Hargreaves… Continue
Paris vs New York is a clever blog that visually matches the subtle, cultural differences of two major cities. Cliché as they may be, the comparisons are a treat for anyone who has visited either metropolis or has been lucky enough to have lived in them. Love the tagline: A Tally of Two Cities. With the quick and viral success of this blog, I'm sure other city… Continue
I'm in love with the raw, urban vibe of this video... Thomas Noesner was strolling through the busting streets of New York City when he spotted a drummer in the subway station. He got the idea of creating a remix of the recorded drum sequence to use as a soundtrack for a film. That´s when sound designer Toussaint came into play. Together they composed a track around the drum beat of the… Continue
It's been a while since I've posted here, and I've missed it quite a bit. The reason is I've been working on a side project of mine for a while. I hope to post more in the future. Here's my description of the post.
I took these photos on a recent trip to New York City. They were taken from the top of the Empire State Building. It was a foggy day, and thought the photos might be a wash. But I turned them all into black and white photos and thought they were much… Continue
Brooklyn artist Dennis McNett is the guy behind this sick new window installation at Barneys New York. Over-sized wolf, owl, and skull masks adorn mannequins inside the display. His imagery from nature, folklore, mythology, and storytelling mixed with graphic woodcut blocks, prints, masks, and paper mache sculptures sets a very unique stage for the retail store in…
It looks as though fashion photographer Derek Kettela took these sexy shots in a vacant high-rise building in New York City. His photos have a rustic feel to them, which really brings out the natural beauty of his brunette models.
Todd and Marlene Capron, a couple who live in Brooklyn NY, have renovated a shabby looking apartment into something really tasteful. On top of that they managed to get a rent reduction in exchange. As the rent of their previous apartment went up from $2,000 to $2,500 a month, they were lucky to find another spacious apartment for $1,900. Wanna know how exactly they did that? Click…
In Brooklyn a group of people were recently arrested for trying to repaint a bike lane that was recently removed. The usual lame excuses about limiting parking and hurting local businesses were used to justify removing the lane as if bike riders don't shop or something. The video includes the groups manifesto about the need for bike lanes to insure riders safety saying:
"Do not try to remove [bike lanes], or we will put them back for our own… Continue
