Sydney Opera House

This was one of my favorite interior shoots during the trip... I've always loved the structure of the Opera House.

Rose Seidler House - Wahroonga, Australia

This is an interior shot of the home built by Australia's favorite modern architect, Harry Seidler. He designed the home for his parents Rose & Max in 1948, and it remains an architectural gem managed by the Historic Houses Trust. I was fortunate enough to have great weather for shoot... the house has amazing natural light.

Lake Wakatipu - Queenstown, New Zealand

This is an aerial, medium format, cross-processed shot of Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand. The scenery is amazingly beautiful and I was lucky enough to capture it, despite having water logged my Hasselblad in a kayak (in this lake).

Lunch with Madeleine Albright

Today I had the pleasure of attending a lunch featuring the one and only, Madeleine Albright. She spoke about her latest book, "Read My Pins," current world affairs and President Obama's receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize. Above is my signed copy of her memoir.

Garden & Home Magazine - South Africa

Here's a clip of our architecture spread from Garden & Home Magazine (South Africa), featuring the world renown firm - Stefan Antoni, Olmesdahl, Truen Architects (SAOTA).

PAVE Shoot

We shot a promotional campaign for P.A.V.E. (Promoting Awareness and Victim Empowerment) for their annual fashion show on September 27th. Featured in the picture is Maxim model, April Rose, who is also a crisis counselor for the cause. For more information about the organization, please visit

Martha's Vineyard

4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and what better place to spend it than in Martha's Vineyard... These are medium format, cross-processed images shot in Aquinnah (meaning "land below the cliffs") on a very cool foggy morning. After several days of eating non-stop (mainly, lobster, fried clams and ice cream) it's definitely time to hit the gym.


Home to the world’s tallest building, Dubai boasts some of the most innovative building styles and structures. The Burj Dubi, designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill with lead architect Adrian Smith, is one of the city's most notable buildings. While the actual height of the building remains a secret, it has been noted that the amount of concrete used to make the Burj Dubi would be equivalent to 1,200 miles of sidewalk! The surrounding area is a massive construction zone. This particular shot was taken next to the Dubai Mall in the (very) hot desert.

Art Institute - The New Modern Wing

We shot Joe Rosa, Curator of Architecture & Design at The Art Institute for the latest edition of Chicago Architect magazine. He's pictured above in the new Modern Wing which is scheduled to open to the public on May 16th.

South Africa - Part I

Just returned from an amazing trip to South Africa! We're looking forward to heading back to Cape Town in mid-February to shoot once again in the summer weather.

Here's a sneak preview of my latest editorial piece on modern architecture in the Mother City:
