Adi & Rachana I New Jersey Marriage Proposal I Jersey City, NJ

Monday, August 6th, 2012

I’m no longer surprised when I get asked to photograph a proposal. It’s fun to be in on the surprise and to witness that special moment. Even better when it comes off as planned. I advised Adi to make sure Rachana wasn’t planning on such a relaxed Saturday evening at Pier C Park in Hoboken that she showed up in shorts and t-shirt, unprepared for a photo shoot. Luckily, Rachana’s friend, in charge of getting her to the Hoboken waterfront, knew what she was doing and Rachana was totally prepared (unknowingly) for the moment. I had a to shoo a few people away from the spot before she arrived, but once people knew what was in the works they didn’t mind. One woman offered to marry Adi herself if Rachana didn’t accept since he was a good looking guy. Rachana- it’s a good thing you snapped him up!

I was impressed with Adi’s color coordination between his tie and the balloons. This man is totally prepared for wedding planning!

Health Care story in Mother Jones

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

I posted the multimedia story I photographed for Time Magazine last summer about the great work Remote Area Medical is doing providing free health care across the country to uninsured Americans. Mother Jones recently published some of the photos so I thought I’d share them with you. motherJones

David Griffin on photography

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

National Geographic has always set the standard for the highest quality photography and storytelling. In an era were the printed image has taken a backseat to the web it’s still a treat to behold those beautifully printed images in a copy of the magazine to truly appreciate great photography.

I discovered this video of a talk by David Griffin, the Director of Photography for National Geographic,  on another photographer’s blog and thought it was worth sharing.

Time.com just published my multimedia photo story on Remote Area Medical, a non-profit group based in Knoxville, TN that provides much needed health care services in the U.S. and overseas. They treated over 2,700 people in three days in Wise, Virginia. Mark Rykoff and Nick McClelland at Time did a great job putting the story together and it was a pleasure to work with them on my first multimedia story.

Puppies Behind Bars/Time.com

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

A story I photographed on a great program called Puppies Behind Bars was published today on Time.com. As a photojournalist I’m always excited to see programs that really succeed in changing people’s lives for the better so I’m very happy to see this story get some attention and wanted to share it with you. Many of the dogs are helping injured soldiers back from Afghanistan and Iraq through the Dog Tags project. If you’re interested in learning more about this you can take a look at the story on Oprah.com.

The Puppies Behind Bars (PPB) Program works with prison inmates in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to train service dogs, including ones who help injured soldiers. The puppies arrive at 8 weeks-old and remain at the prisons, mostly working with one inmate, for 20 months. Fishkill Correctional Facility is a medium security prison in New York with 22 men in the puppy program. The emotional element of caring for the puppies breaks down the hard façade that most prisoners create for themselves to survive prison life. Prisoners learn responsibility and pride in helping others. The program often gives them a new outlook on their crimes, their time in prison, and goals when they are released.
