Christine's New Headshots


I would like to congratulate Christine Rosado on her new headshots. It was a pleasure photographing her in the studio and outdoors in the Chelsea area of Manhattan.

Christine is a lively and fun person. She's also a friend of mine.

Keep your eyes out for her in the new play, "In Due Season" by Elaine Glover, at Harvest Fields in the Bronx during the first weekend of December (

Urban Fine Art Fave - "Miami, South Bronx"


I love the gritty texture here of Genesis with the clouds brooding in the background. It feels like the Miami heat is beating down on her in this South Bronx exterior.

Urban Fine Art Fave - "Jasmine"


Originally uploaded by JosephDominick

Jasmine wanted some lovely portraits of herself, so we spent the morning walking in Central Park.

This is the first photo I began working on. I find the Black & White really highlights the beauty and the softness of Jasmine's character. Her eyes are strong, determined, and yet still searching.

Weekend Photos

So I talked Genesis into taking photos with me in some remote areas of the Bronx. She lovingly obliged.

Here are two portraits from this Saturday's shoot:

The Non-Headshot Selections

So I had a great time last month working with Chrissy Rosado. She needed actor headshots so we took photos in my studio as well as outdoors in the Chelsea area of Manhattan.

Below are two portraits which did not make it into the final selection of headshots. So of course I pimped them out.

I categorize these under Lifestyle Photography.

The first one below is what I call "Strictly Gangsta":

The next one I call "Grunge/Rock Star":

Picture This

A couple of years ago I realized I had very few photos of myself. Mostly that was because I was either holding the camera or the people who took photos of me took blurry or not pleasing photos. So I challenged myself to ask people to take pics hoping with more pics the odds would be higher for me to get a decent photo of myself. But that actually didn't work either.

So I resorted to doing self-portraits. Inspired by the phenomenon of my MySpace friends at the time, I photographed myself. I actually got some great portraits. One of my favorite self-portraits I even designed into a business card. Who would have thought?

It would have been so much easier if I knew someone who took good photos. So the moral of the story is find a good photographer who knows how to make you look good. And if that doesn't work, photograph yourself. Just please, no more bathroom mirror self-portraits. There are too many of them out there online. :0)
