The only photo i cared for in a long long time… I am a little partial to the subject though.
I had a quick sitting with Daniel Radcliffe last week for WSJ’s Weekend Confidential.
He was fresh off a night plane back from an exhausting week in Sundance but he was a particularly good sport and had even prepared a playlist for the shoot.
So we blasted Blondie and voila.
Many thanks to James Weber at Hudson Yard Loft.
At the end of the year, I managed to con The Wall Street Journal into paying me to take a short photo walk with Blondie guitarist and fellow photographer Chris Stein, around his house in the West Village.
Many thanks to Allison Scott at WSJ for all the fun gigs.
Last monday, I met with Kaws for a quick sitting at his studio in Williamsburg for The Wall Street Journal.
I would give you more details but for the second time in my career, I had to sign a NDA…
See more weekend confidential portraits here.
I stopped by my longtime Bushwick neighbor & surf buddy Tyrome Tripoli’s studio on Troutmann street for a coffee and a chat a little while ago.
And I snapped a few photos.
Shot at the Williamsburg hotel.
A few weeks ago, I drove to Nazareth PA to shoot driving legend Mario Andretti for WSJ around his beautiful house for the Mansion section.
It was a weird shoot because both him and I were faking it.
Just a few days prior, Mr Andretti’s wife of 57 years had died.
And although it can’t possibly be compared; that same morning, my dog Olive had to be put down. I was devastated.
We looked at the fancy cars, the trophies,the memorabilia etc… I did my usual shooting jokes, he did his usual smiling poses, we shot the photos for the Journal.
When we finished, he just sat on a chair near a big window, and let out a big sigh of relief.
I slipped a black background behind him, we didn’t say anything,I shot 5 more photos.
A few weeks ago, I was basically being carried around backstage by 2 union guys, minutes from the start of Hamilton’s matinee performance, to photograph lead violinist Jonathan Dinklage, whose brother you might incidentally know from a successful tv show.
