Here is a picture inside the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York City. This place is quite the attraction and you see why, it is stunning. The architecture is majestic and is done by none other than by architect Santiago Calatrava. This incredible place took 12 years to complete at a cost of 4 billion dollars.

Here is one I shot on my last New York City workshop. This was one of the last photos I shot during that trip. It was so cold I could not feel my fingers, my face, my feet, anything at all. I remember thinking “if the photo comes out good, it will be all worth it”

Here is a photo I have never published before, anywhere. This was right below the Brookling bridge on my way home one night. It was cold and my feet were wet, but I could not stop shooting. This sculpture graved my attention and I count not make out what it was, until a lightbulb when on… Its the infinity symbol. I love the contrast of the color against the blue sky.

I am currently packing to head out to lead my NYC Photography Workshop, I am scheduling a couple posts because I will be so busy in NYC I probably wont have time to do anything except take pictures. Hey nothing wrong with that. By the time I get back this will just be posting.
I shot this las January on a very, very cold day. It was awesome because I was with some great friends and have some really nice memories. I remember we were walking all day and it did not end here, we still managed to cross the Brooklyn bridge after. Let me just say everyone was hungry, cold and ready for bed after. (I can’t believe its almost been a year already)
This is the statue of Liberty in NYC. I shot it with a 70-200 Here are my settings:

My relationship with New York is a romantic one. Like the one of a 12 year old kid and his obsession with the girl next door. I come to New York at least once a year to get away, to get recharged, to get inspired, and most importantly to recharge my creativity.
New York City is a magical place. Everything is happening so fast, and to keep up is nearly impossible. Some days I take it easy by going to get a slice of pizza somewhere, and somedays I can’t stop, I become one with the madness. One thing is for sure, no matter how many times I come to New York, I’m a bit sad to leave, but smile at the thought of coming back. If I can find an excuse to come back, count me in.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from my most recent trip in no particular order.
