Firehouse Hostage Standoff in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania

Yesterday, I spent the morning photographing a hostage situation in which 4 firefighters were held captive by a former volunteer member. Luckily, all ended well when the man gave himself up to police.

Here’s a short video I made as well:

I probably tweeted about this a while ago, but now I am finally getting around to posting a link to one of the interviews I did with Elaina Ransford last summer about some of my nightmare business experiences as a photographer. One of the worst, which was a three day shoot in NYC, was mentioned in The Freelancer by Contenly. Contently makes software to empower publishers, creatives and readers.

Speaking of Contently. Check this out, especially if you’re a freelancer. It’s a quiz for the freelance. Well, it’s actually geared towards a writer, but it may help you figure out which kind of freelancer you are if you don’t already know.
I’m “The Hustler.”

Here’s another article I was quoted in a while back from the New York Times about wedding photography.
