Fine Art Photography
In 2008, my art photography began as an effort to push myself as a photojournalist. While looking for new ways to view the world I chanced upon a picture that would later lead to the development of a style that would be called “Funtography”. It was the beginning of something special for me while also being a relief from the news business. Since 2003, I have been a photojournalist. I have been in many NYC neighborhoods and in 2008 I began to document those areas with Funtography. Stylistically it is a digital photograph that resembles a painting but is done pre-production with a little technical and creative assistance. For me it made a boring location exciting and it was a way to capitalize on the light and shadows that were available. It was a way to create a beautiful picture in an urban landscape.
Hundreds of pictures and neighborhoods later I continue to be passionate about the New York City landscapeand all the magic it possesses. I look forward to the future developments of Funtography.
