Camp AmeriKids 2014 Spring Benefit: Philip Glass, The National


The Camp AmeriKids 2014 Spring Benefit exceeded all of our expectations this year. Philip Glass gave an incredible performance. Soterios Johnson, of NPR's Morning Edition, was our host. We honored Scott Devendorf and Bryce Dessner of The National and John Carlin, Founder of Red Hot Organization for their long-standing support of Camp AmeriKids. Some former campers performed a inspirational music and spoken word piece. And as a host committee member I had the great pleasure of working with Donna Karan's Urban Zen team at the Stephan Weiss Studio in the West Village. I am so honored to have been a part of this event and to be a volunteer at Camp AmeriKids.

The mission of Camp AmeriKids is to enhance the lives of youth living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and Sickle Cell disease by providing an enriching summer camp experience, year-round skill bulking and supported transition into adulthood.

A huge thank you to the over 250 guests who were able to attend and to all of you who support and help us spread the word about these incredible kids!

Philip Glass.

Susan Jaffe: Blue Pas de Deux (American Ballet Theatre)

 TalismanPHOTO.com/SusanJaffeABT

I had the once in a lifetime opportunity of photographing Susan Jaffe rehearsing her new choreography, “Blue Pas de Deux,” with Veronika Part and Thomas Forster for opening night of the American Ballet Theatre's 2012 gala. Just being in the same room with these master dancers while they worked together was an honor.

The New York Times calls Susan Jaffe, “America’s Quintessential American Ballerina.” She was a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre for 20 years after Mikhail Baryshnikov, ABT's Artistic Director at the time, pulled her out of the corps de ballet.

You can see more of my images from this series on my website.

Richemont North America: Employee Volunteer Day at ROW New York



Richemont North America hired me to photograph their annual Employee Volunteer Day at the Meadow Lake Boathouse benefiting ROW New York. ROW New York is an organization that empowers young people from New York City’s under-resourced communities to build strength, gain confidence, and pursue excellence through the unique sport of rowing. The Richemont volunteers  washed down equipment, organized supply closets, cleaned the area grounds and cheered on the rowers during their regatta. It was a fantastic day helping a wonderful cause and I loved being there to document it.
