About Me

I am a published portrait photographer, active for 2 decades, recently the subject of a feature story in The Advocate:

I am drawn to people with complicated histories - both ethnic and personal - which are visible in their faces or their bodies.  I'm a fan of extreme multi-ethnicity, complex racial & national stories, extreme features and unconventional looks.  I am always interested in working with people of any age whose faces reveal very distinct and strong ethnicity. 

I am more interested in people than in fashion, and enjoy working with people who are not models.

Because my Model Mayhem portfolio is rarely updated, the preferred way to contact me is via Instagram: @anomalousnyc

I'm currently working out of Washington Heights (northern Manhattan).  I try to offer two TFP shoots each month for people with genuine financial hardship. 


- Portrait sittings typically take place evenings and last 2.5 to 3 hours.  Models typically recieve at least 5 processed portraits in 6 to 8 weeks.  I do not release unedited photos.

- Models must be unaccompanied; if you feel you require the presence of guests (escorts, stylists, drivers, girlfriends etc) this must be discussed in advance at the time of booking.

- Cancelling a shoot at the last minute means an entire shooting day wasted for me.  Scheduled shoots cancelled same-day will not recieve a refund.  In the case of free shoots, models who cancel same-day will not be invited to work with me again.
