Someone asked me a few days ago if I still shoot street photography because many of the recent photos that I’ve posted are abstract street. The answer is most definitely yes! I shoot street, abstract street and lens-based-art. These photos were taken during a private photo tour in Jackson Heights, Queens.
This is NYC and you can see all kinds of people on the streets here.
I provide private street photography workshops for people who are unable to attend my public workshops or if they would like to shoot in other neighborhoods. We are able to work more closely and focus on your interests. Jersey Street, June 2018.

If I had liked art classes when I was younger, I may very well have become a painter. But instead I became a photographer. I feel that the environment that I shoot in is my palette. And with street photography it is the element of chance that brings people into my frame. So often my street photos feel like a painting to me. You can see more of my street photography in my galleries.
A good majority of my street photography is in black and white. Perhaps I am old school. But it has always been my preference since the days of shooting film. That said, every once in awhile I choose to process a photo in color. You can see more of my street photography on my website.
