Back in the saddle... Again

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 | |

I've always said it would happen. Long period of time and no blogging. Really no excuse other than getting overwhelmed with everything else going on in my life. I'll be a dad in 10 weeks. Which is crazy overwhelming. Preparation for parenthood is overwhelming. Afghanistan, Vegas, Haiti, and China assignments were overwhelming.
But Im so crazy excited to welcome my baby boy into the world. I welcome the change it will bring to my life, to my family, to my career. I'm scared, anxious, but excited.

I have of course been keeping up a regular iPhone photo blog over at I update that pretty much everyday. Hopefully I can keep this up again as I insert myself back into the NY community and gain some time to reflect on this crazy life of ours.

It looks like I'm going to be a father in 6 months time. A whole new world is waiting for me. For Marvi. For our family. I'm scared shitless and can't wait. How will it change my life? Drastically I'm sure. How will it change me as a man, as a husband? I'm sitting in my run-down hotel room in Afghanistan thinking about how much I can't wait to go home, hold Marvi, and build a crib or something.

I spent most of my days these last few weeks in the air flying between various shoots. While most people hate the travel and sitting in the middle seat, it does give you some down time. No phone, no email, just you and a book or a journal - which is what I regularly bring onto all my flights. I spent most of my last flight reading US News and Works Report photographer Jim Lo Scalzo's memoir - Evidence of my Existence. Great read, and the catalyst for an epiphany. I love photography, I love traveling. I love exploring. But I love Marvi so much more. An with all the changes coming to our family in the next few months, I want to be home. Working. But home and close by.

Another Blog site

Friday, April 10, 2009 | |

I'm not sure how to delegate my two blogs. What I write on this one versus what I write on the Tumblr blog, but I really like both. And since I do facebook and twitter, I figure I'm just making myself more Web 2.0.

I figure I'll end up doing more rambling long diatribes against the establishment here, post images and outtakes from assignments, and inspirational links from friends. Tumblr will be more in the "now." iPhone pics, quotes I hear on the street, and small snippets of my two cents.

Chicago O'hare Airport

| |

Currently on another assignment, this time to Minneapolis for Time Magazine, I realized during a layover in the Chicago airport that I've been here so much lately. Tons actually. But the fact is that I've only been "in" Chicago twice. Weird. I know where all re starbucks are in O'hare, but I don't know the first thing about downtown Chicago. Except that it's cold. And windy. It gives me pause, my career takes me so many places so often, but sometimes I just pass through, and never experience where I am. Do the job quickly, go to the venue, and that's it. No time to stop and smell the proverbial roses.

Sometimes I just want to see a place. To wander through it. Screw the camera on those days.
