These photographs come from a recent shoot at the Cambridge based biotech company Gingko Bioworks. Gingko uses synthetic DNA to manufacture and "brew" artificial flavors and scents. Their mission is to make materials in the lab that have been harvested in the past - replacing technology with biology, as they say.
Today I wanted to share some images from Mount Holyoke's 2016 graduation. Covering commencement was part of a seven day shooting schedule this academic year that helped build the college's library of images for marketing and advertising.
I've been a huge fan of Ken Burns' work for years, so I was excited to be contacted by the National Endowment for The Humanities to shoot his portrait for their newest issue of Humanities Magazine. Burns was honored for his decades of award winning historical documentary film making and named the Endowment's 2016 Jefferson Lecturer. His lecture was delivered on May 9th at the Kennedy Center, you can watch his thoughtful lecture here.
Here's a look at some of my favorite photographs from the election.
I have worked as a corporate photographer in Boston for over a decade, and have had the pleasure of working with some the best companies in the city. Today I wanted to share some samples of corporate headshots that I have shot recently. The corporate headshot, while sometimes considered a necessary evil by some employees, is actually a promising opportunity to reinforce the message of your corporate brand.
Here's a look at a recently published jewelry campaign that I shot. The photos are for a new line of interactive necklaces from the New York City based jewelry company, Vela. The necklaces have an embedded LED diode that back lights the stone. The light is adjustable in intensity based on ambient lighting conditions, so the jewelry looks as good in a dark bar as it does on the street. There are currently seven models in the Vela collection, with more on the way.
The photos were shot with varied background light, to show the capabilities of the necklace. I've included some of the final photos, as well as some behind the scenes shots.

Portraits for Runway For Recovery:
I'm proud to have been a part of Runway For Recovery again this year. Runway hosts an annual runway show to raise money for the families of women battling breast cancer. The models that walk the runway are either breast cancer survivors or the family of women who have fought the illness. This year's event was held at the Revere hotel in Boston, and had a huge turnout of supporters.
We are in the exact middle of multi-part project for Massachusetts General Hospital, and I wanted to share some portraits of some of the doctors that we have photographed. This is just a very small sample of a much larger project, so there will be lots more to show in the future.
We just finished up photographing a billboard campaign live in Times Square for Schofferhofer Grapefruit. It was quite a shoot, over the course of fifteen hours across three nights we photographed over 700 people. To be honest it was a production high wire act, and I’m happy to report it went off without a hitch.
