Men’s Health story on the dangers of Robot surgery…the stellar Joe Rodriquez at MH was my co pilot on this one…Concept was to build a robot in studio, but have it look sinister and broken..Terminator movie was my inspiration for the look and feel..Heres the published article as it appeared, as well as a few outtakes that I loved…

My shoot ¬†of the X47-B for Popular Mechanics, the first unmanned carrier based drone..It had such beautiful lines, such a pleasure to walk around it and take photographs of this machine…I’ve always loved photographing machines, especially big, American made ones like this one..I also had the privilege to photograph the team that made it, from the US Navy Commander to the lead team at Northrop Grumman. For that portrait we did a diptych, 2 separate images, but concepted as one image, running next to each other.

Highlights from my year ending world tour for Mens Health magazine..such a great time..Athletes are always my fav subjects to shoot…This shoot took Johnny and I from LA to Manchester UK, Indiana, and Minnesota..Heres the tear sheets as well as a few of the hi res finals and a couple of personal favs…Joe Rodriquez and Mark Haddad once again kept us bouncing around and concepting on the fly! And of course Julia at Redux was my guardian angel finding white seamless, assistants, and odds and ends to keep me focussed on taking great pix..a great way to end the year, looking forward to so much more….nw

I’ve been taking photographs for a living for about 20 years, and I’ve been scuba diving for about 35 years. On this shoot, the two worlds finally intersected, in the most fabulous way…..

This past spring, I got a call from Allyson over at Popular Mechanics…”would you like to photograph Andy Casagrande, one of the best wildlife cinematographers in the world? Oh yea, his specialty is sharks and shark week for Discovery.” Continue reading

I’ve had some fun shoots the past couple of years with Christian Iooss at Golf DIgest. Its one of those clients where I always say yes to an assignment, because I know it will be a good one, and I know how much they value great photographs and Ideas..Here’s a shoot I did this summer out at Liberty National Club in NJ…I shot Ian Poulter, currently ranked #17 in the world and one of the funnest guys in golf..I’ve shot Ian before for Golf Digest, a couple of years ago we built a big bullseye and put Ian on it, as if a knifer thrower were about to start throwing knives at him..Ian gets conceptual ideas and generally will do most anything you want him to. For this assignment, there was no specific direction, Christian just said go and find some great pictures..It was great that Ian had remembered our bullseye shoot, as I had heard he really liked it and was very surprised how cool it came out. He was totally trusting in me at this point..On this day, he was playing a round with some regular guys for a commitment to one of his sponsors, so I wasnt really allowed to slow up play or anything, just figure it out on the fly and get a shot here and there when I could..I’m really good at that though, and knew the right opportunity would present itself. When he got in the bunker, it just kinda happened..He had fun with it and made that connection that I was looking for…heres the tear sheet as it ran in the mag, as well as a couple of out takes that I loved..I also put the highlights from the last couple of years of my work for Golf Digest..the bullseye shoot included!
