About


 About 

I'm what you might call a creative professional. After finishing up my MFA at NYU's Steinhardt School Art Department, I started career in design and marketing to pay the bills and to support my art habit. If I'm not working a commercial gig, I'm probably snapping pics, compulsively making movies, or working on my screenwriting practice. I finished my first feature-length script this year and of late have been focussing on short form sketch comedy.

About the Project

Goodness, where do I start? I've been obsessed with cameras since I was a little boy. Sort of a tinkerer I guess. My first job was at a camera store. Pictures just fascinate me. Do you ever take a minute to think about how before 150 years ago, or so, if you moved away from home -- you'd just forget what your relatives looked like? Because photos hadn't been invented yet? Photos play a big part of our lives and to some extent that informs the pictures I take.

I'd estimate there's about 40-50 days of design and production work in these books. Truly a labor of love. Pretty detail oriented stuff - sifting through 50,000+ images - scanning negatives - retouching, layout, etc etc. Glad it's over, but it's super gratifying to get through all that work and I'm thrilled and relieved to be able to share these books with you. Thanks for checking out my project!

The Rewards

Pretty straight forward in the rewards section. Have a look and let me know if you have any questions. I have a few affordable options if you don't want to spring for the physical paper versions. You can get just one printed book for $20, your pick. Or if you want to get your hands on the pair (designed as a set) it costs just $35. Additionally there are a few luxury tiers that include gallery quality prints - either framed or unframed - if you think you'd like to display one of these on the wall. 

Some Spreads

Here are a few spreads from both books. One of my favorite aspects is how the images across the page from each other interact. What do they make you think about?

Risks and challenges

These books are ready to print and I have the pricing all figured out and a great print shop to partner with. That said, getting the books printed in a timely matter is a big concern of mine. I'm going to push to have these in your hands by Christmas, but it might be tight so I picked a January 2020 delivery date to be safer

Overall this sort of project is something I've done a lot in the past, so rest-assured your hard-earned dollars will be well-spent and I'll follow through on my end of the deal.
