The face of NYC portrait photographer

Preface:

I am a lover of life, love, and laughter; a self-professed people watcher, who is inspired by people every day, people I may not even know—their trials and tribulations brought by life; people's thoughts, ideas, and principles; and their varying perspectives on this twisted journey we call life.

I have thankfully made a lot of mistakes in life. I am an ambivert, who strays away from being the center of attention. I have an extraordinarily sarcastic sense of humor. I believe that life is something we will only understand when looked at in retrospect. I love the violin and cello, and I think thunderstorms are erotic. I obsessively listen to music, of all varieties, and especially when live; music inspires me on a daily basis.

After studying chemistry, physics, and environmental sciences, I received my BFA in Multimedia Communications & Advertising from the Academy of Art University; have studied fine art, photography, and architecture in five countries; and am pursuing my MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art & Design.

Your thoughts and feedback are always welcome!


Philosophy:

I am not a capitalist. Money is essentially imaginary and mostly useless.

I gauge success neither by financial wealth nor by social status. There is one sole measurement of success in life, a more philosophical, more personal one. Success is measured by the effect you have on others; the ability to purport emotional connections. This is the vehicle by which change, movement, and progress are all produced.

Generating an emotional connection is success!


Plot:

In October of 2006, this philosophy perpetuated the genesis of Still Motion Design. I believe that, especially when creating, you can't look at anything from a single angle; you need to take a step back and realize the potential impact your work has on its audience, and society as a whole.


Planet:

Still Motion Design is a studio powered entirely by renewable resources: Our electricity is derived exclusively from solar and biomass sources, our printed materials are created on recycled and eco-friendly papers (and are recyclable) , and our servers are driven entirely by wind-generated electricity!


Dedication:

Still Motion Design is graciously dedicated to my Father, whose endless inspiration and emotional & mental support prevailed in the most dire of situations. He left far too soon, but will never leave our thoughts.
