It's March! And it's almost warm. ALMOST. I'll quickly mention an assignment for The New York Institute of Technology at their Old Westbury campus: "See if you can bring us some images of a day in the life of the campus in the snow." Challenge accepted... and hands and toes absolutely frozen. Great people there - it's very sad to see the place so empty, with most of the learning virtual aside from the med students.
Next, Duke Health in Durham, North Carolina, reached out to send me on a shoot to make editorial portraits of Long Island local Donna Bernstein, whose generous contributions to their health system has built a garden outside where patients can receive their chemotherapy in a remarkably beautiful setting. A cancer survivor herself, Donna has owned tennis clubs in Glen Cove and continues to teach. Special thanks to Huntington's Park Ave. Tennis - Karen and Phil - for hosting our socially-distanced efforts one frigid afternoon when the club was empty.
And lastly but importantly, we're partnering with the animal rescue heroes at Ollie's Angels for a fundraiser: $20 gets you one raffle ticket that gives you a full photo shoot for your pup, complete with either a 20"x30" wall canvas OR a gorgeous wood, leather, or fabric-covered box with ten mounted prints inside that features our efforts together! Please be as generous as you can for a great cause - winner to be chosen this Saturday. $20 tickets are purchased via
