Amsterdam at Night

Despite its reputation for legalized marijuana and prostitution, Amsterdam was recently named the fifth safest city in the world by the Safe Cities Index.

When in Spain

Spanish culture is so robust, so alluring and so hard to forget. While on assignment in Granada in Andalucia, we used our down time to capture remarkable architecture, beautiful faces and many of the unique details that make the region so special. And don’t worry about that safe stealer… She’s just a cutup at heart!

The quiet Irish Atlantic

My summer trips back home to Ireland are always refreshing. There is a certain re-grounding that happens to me while I’m there.

It is a social and festive occasion and for many has also been turned into an opportunity to festoon oneself in one’s finest attire! There is a stark contrast between the colorful fashion embraced by many of the

NYC Street Portraits

I’ve always had a love of street photography since my earliest days of shooting. The world is more interesting and exciting with a camera in hand. It’s exhilarating to approach a total stranger and usually within a minute or two, make a portrait using the world around us as the backdrop. Here are some photos from my downtime

My Irish Summer

For me, returning home to Ireland each summer is like pressing a re-set button. Even though low clouds float through the sky almost constantly and often bring ‘scattered showers’ (a frequently used term in Irish weather forecasting!), I find that being there is somehow therapeutic. Sunshine is received by all as a welcome gift because

I find it interesting to observe how style and fashion varies from place to place. These are some of the different styles I
