I’ll be working on assignment in NYC a lot in the next few weeks, and really looking forward to shooting close to home. I’ve always responded to the city, and its energy, with a camera in hand. Not to say it isn’t occasionally daunting, hectic, or occasionally even harrowing, but it’s almost always worth it. Teaching a National Geographic Workshop this weekend, and then, after a series of shoots in DC, back to NY for a project. There is nothing like NY for location, location, location.

It’s been a long, wonderful tussle with the city, wresting imagery from fortress Manhattan, with its glass, steel and high walls, as formidable on some days as the gates of Mordor. You get smoked a fair bit, but then, the city gives you gift. Looking forward to pounding some concrete this weekend, camera slung, hopes as high as ever.
