I started this blog when I moved here and began working across the street from Bergdorf Goodman. I had been attracted to windows when I lived in San Francisco but BG took it to a whole other level. Realizing that I was doting on these windows, I realized that these windows were a great source of inspiration. So, I wanted to put them out there for others to view.
Work-wise, I am an Interactive Senior Art Director at Scott Kay. Before that I was at Estée Lauder. I also teach at Pratt Institute. I moved here from San Francisco.

I began shooting in grade school with an old Argus twin-lens reflex that my mom made my dad buy me (thanks mom!) and I’ve been shooting ever since. Currently, I’m shooting with a Nikon D700 which recently replaced my D300 and a D70S before that. I also have a Nikon FA and a Mamiya 645. Both are great cameras but I simply don’t have the luxury to continue in film even though I love it more.
Up until a few years ago, I was still shooting Ilford FP4, developing with Rodinal, and printing to Oriental Seagull G3. It wasn’t until the Epson R2400 came out that I finally felt that a digital workflow was rivaling analog black & white. That’s pretty much when I severed the darkroom ties. Now I’m printing on a 2880 and the quality is just simply amazing!
