Last night I had the opportunity to meet a real WOLF! Atka is an Arctic Gray Wolf that serves as an embassador for the Wolf Conservation Center in Salem, NY. He was just hanging out having drinks at Broken Land. Haha, kidding. He was ushered in by his handler after an informative presentation about the mission of the WCC and the Species Survival Plan for this majestic but sadly endangered species.
Alright- Here it is! A post compiling the Apache/ High Times Magazine shoot from August complete with tear sheet. Very glad to see this advance copy of the January 2014 issue, and glad that this counter-cultural mag is celebrating 40 years- Enjoy!

I shot this in January of 2008 for a Freshkills promo shoot. Tim, evidently, has an effect on cats. Tim is respectably, a talented Musician, Creative and Entrepreneur. He is one of my most favorite and trusted friends and he photographs well. His new bar is called Broken Land (Franklin Ave. at Greenpoint Ave.). PARTY!
Sad day in New York as music fans mourn the loss of the inimitable Lou Reed. The Velvet Underground, White Light/ White Heat, Transformer and Coney Island Baby are just a FEW of the works that have touched me in my comprehensive education of rock n’ roll. One thing I wish I had the opportunity to do before he passed away was to pick his brain about the first Velvet Underground show at Summit High School (December 11th, 1965). The high school is down the street from my Grandfather’s house and my Mom, Aunts and Uncles are all alumni. I was fortunate to have been able to photograph him for SPIN in April of 2009 for a rare performance of Metal Machine Music at NYC’s Blender Theater. Thanks for all the great music Lou, RIP.
