Another photo stop I was excited for on my recent NYC trip was the newly designed Gilder Center by Studio Gang Architects. Lots of great curves and texture and I love the organic nature of the space. It kinda reminds me of the Flinstones, don’t you think? Natural history museums aren’t generally my kind of […]

John A. Paulson Center, NYU | Kieran Timberlake

Recently I spent a couple of days in NYC. While the majority of the trip was to tour some colleges and explore the city with my daughter, I did stop by a couple of new buildings to grab a few photos. Given she’s considering studying architecture, I think she enjoyed my little “work” detours too;) […]

NYC Workshop Recap 2022

It’s been over 3 years since the last NYC workshop. I was so excited to be back – I love this city + there are a number of new locations to photograph since my last visit. As always, I had a really great group of students. About half have done a workshop with me before […]

Brooklyn Bridge Park to Lower Manhattan | NYC

The final workshop day was filled with so many great locations. Starting with skyline views of Lower Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park. As you see above I had more fun with intentional camera movement as I loaned my tripod to a student, a little forced creativity. Next, we walked along the East River and I […]

Queens & Manhattan | NYC

guggenheim museum, nyc, frank lloyd wright

Continuing another day exploring NYC. As I’ve mentioned, I was there for our workshop (Photography Unfolded). We started day 3 with sunrise in Hunter’s Point, which has nice views of Midtown. I prefer using the pavilion in South Waterfront Park to frame the city, particularly the Chrysler Building. After breakfast, we headed back to Manhattan, […]

Brooklyn to Jersey

Continuing with all those NYC images. When in town for a workshop, there’s A LOT of shooting! This is the first year we spent so much time in Brooklyn, crazy how much is being built there! Not super new, but opened in 2012 is the Barclays Center. An indoor arena, home to the Brooklyn Nets […]

NYC High Line to the Flatiron

515 W 29th St, high line, SCDA Architects

Continuing with more great NYC architecture, a little walk along the High Line. Spanning 1.45 miles this former railroad turned elevated park is quite popular.  For the second year in a row I had rain while exploring this area…not the best luck, lol. Oh well, still an experience and great photo ops. First up, 515 […]

The Shed | NYC

Continuing in Hudson Yards and the High Line in NYC is The Shed designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro. This was a fun one to photograph! The retractable exterior is covered in a Teflon-like material and the way the facade changes depending on the light is remarkable. First up, a shot from inside The Shops […]

The Vessel | NYC

One of the latest architectural additions to NYC is the Vessel by Thomas Heatherwick. Part of the new Hudson Yards development and its main attraction, it’s 16 stories and 150 feet high. Consisting of 154 flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings, it can hold up to 1000 people at a time. Some liken […]

Urban Quilt NYC, 2019

During my workshop in New York City earlier this year I was on the lookout for images to add to my Urban Quilt series. At this point, I’ve separated cities into their own sets, though I’m not sure I’ll keep it that way. A few cities are in the works but NYC and Chicago are […]
