Timo Ellis indulged me in a conversation about the new NETHERLANDS album, the writing process and the habits of prolific creatives. The footage and photos were edited together from thousands of images shot between 2009 and 2013 at his shows in NYC. Further down are a few GIFS I made from their record release show at Death By Audio on November 30th, 2013.

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!

One of my most inspiring friends, LA-based Editor/Director Alex Moyer returns to her old stomping grounds in Greenpoint.
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!
Here are some of my top edits from the Soul Clap party on October 19th. Check out the Soul Clap gallery as it evolves each month.
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.
