I recently spent a week in Sun Valley, Idaho and it’s surrounding regions in the Sawtooth National Forest, as well as some time in Salt Lake City. Here is a collection of some of my favorite images from the trip, shot on both digital and film, as seen in a new gallery on my website.

Recently the pool, or bowl, at the skatepark in Saratoga Springs, NY was filled with dirt and rendered un-skateable. The city claimed they were forced to cut park employees and the pool was deemed too hazardous to be part of the new “skate at your own risk” policy. Since then, local skaters and the people of the town have been trying to get the city to remove the dirt from the pool, even offering to dig it out themselves. It’s one of the oldest pools on the East Coast, and as a skater from New York I know how rare and special it is to have access to one (there are only a handful more in the Northeast even now). With the exponential increase of popularity and interest in skateboarding over the past few years, removing the bowl is like removing a soccer or baseball field from a public park. Please visit Save the Skatepark for more information, or better yet, sign the petition to have the dirt removed. Here are some photos I took of the bowl at the park while at school in Saratoga:
I was on a job for the city of New York shooting an event honoring the NYPD. It was a nice event, but event photography is fairly boring and needless to say you rarely get photos you’d want to use for something else. But you always have to keep an eye open, just like any time you go out with your camera. You never know when you’ll spot something interesting, like the light hitting this construction site that I had a view of from the 12th floor.
