New Images In Velero Beach Gallery

I got back from another trip to Cabarete last week, staying at my friend’s place in Velero Beach Resort.  While there I worked on a few photography assignments.  One of them was photographing a young brother and sister at the pool and then on the beach.  I think I got some wonderful images from that. […]


A Lifeguard Station

I was disappointed that I did not post any blogs while I was down in Cabarete, the Dominican Republic for a couple of weeks.  I was on a crappy laptop with spotty wi-fi (that will be my excuse and I’m sticking with it).  But I’m back now and wanting to share some images with you. […]


NYC FotoWorks Starts Today!

My blog has been successfully cleansed of the malware that has kept me from posting for a couple of weeks.  ”A COUPLE OF WEEKS!”  you may be thinking.  Yes, it took me too long.  I am a one-man operation here.  But I am also somebody who is prone to push aside having to deal with […]


New Leica T

Screenshot 2014-05-04 08.34.50

I am pretty ambivalent regarding Leica digital cameras, and I am willing to admit that this may be partly due to my unhappy experience with the early models of Leica dig cams – they fell short within their respective price ranges of what Japanese manufacturers were offering.   Although from what I understand they have […]


Train Picture — Hong Kong Photo — National Geographic Photo of the Day

This is the sort of photograph that really connects with me viscerally. It is beautifully executed with a high degree of technical skill (f-stop, shutter speed,depth of field). It is also a wonderful example of what, for me, photography does best: photography can honestly portray the quotidian in a fresh way and elevate a moment. […]


Images From Election Process in Afghanistan

This series of photographs documenting the election process in Afghanistan are wonderful, and I felt the need to share them with those who may not yet have seen them.  The Romantic movement in painting came to mind as I looked at several of them for the quality of light, composition, and scenes depicted.     The […]


An Evolving View of Animals by Tim Flach

An image by Tim Flach as seen on the LENS blog of the NY Times.

I find one of the most inspiring photography blogs to be the LENS blog in the NY Times.  A case in point is today’s blog on the beautiful and transportive work of Tim Flach .  In the LENS blog it discusses what informs and drives Mr. Flach to create his work.  He also happens to have […]


Marketing Manifesto

As some of you know, I am now working with Agency Access to help me with my marketing.  Lynn Kyle, who has been working with me on my images, emails, client lists, etc., wrote down a list of what I need to continue working on as we go forward.  It is very smart.  I have […]


Photography Marketing from an Expert: Photographer’s Agent Patrick Casey

I liked this blog so much I decided to share it on my own blog.  It concisely addresses the actions a photographer needs to take in order to begin and maintain a successful marketing.   If you are lost on where to begin with your marketing, this provides information on where you should start. Photography […]


Walking Among the Kite Surfers

wpid-RLE_140225_195.jpg

I enjoy the whole vibe of Cabaret in the Dominican Republic.  One of the more fascinating places for me to go to on my last visit was an area called Kite Beach, where you can learn to kite surf and then go out among the throngs of other surfers enjoying the seemingly constant wind.  On […]


Airborne Kite Surfer

This image was taken on Kite Beach in Cabarete, Dominican Republic.  I went to the beach hoping to get some decent shots about an hour before sunset.  I got there around 5:30pm, but the sun, which is of course already low in the horizon this time of year, was beginning to be blocked by the […]


Kite Beach at Cabarete, Dominican Republic

This image, which was taken at Kite Beach in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, illustrates why people come to Cabarete.  It is an ideal combination of wind, waves, and beach that makes it a great place to wind surf.  I stood and watched for awhile. It is hard to believe that so many surfers do not entangle […]


2 Men at a Brooklyn Diner

I was having lunch today with a friend of mine and I wanted to catch the two men having lunch a couple of tables away from us.  I love how the ketchup bottle renders one man anonymous while the other glances off to his side while eating his food.  Although they are seated together, in […]


Mets-Willets Point Subway Platform

I love winter light.  The long shadows cast by the sun’s lower position nearer to the horizon can create some dramatic effects.  The girl’s hair was what first caught my attention.  I was attracted to the way it was backlit.  I thought of how I could frame her and decided to include the larger scene […]


Agency Access

I feel as if my fledgling career as a commercial photographer has taken an important step forward with my decision to partner up with Agency Access to help me with my marketing and promotion.  It is called Campaign Manager.  After trying to work on marketing and promotion for a year on my own I decided […]


A Groom Being Groomed

I took a small gig photographing the wedding of a young couple.   They decided to forgo the crazy and expensive route of a full-blown wedding and instead get married at the Marriage Bureau, City Clerk’s Office.  This is an image of the groom being groomed.


New Portfolio, “In the Hills Above Joba Arriba”

From my recent trip to Cabarete,  Dominican Republic I had the great joy of taking a hike up in the high forested hills above the village, or campos, of Joba Arriba with a woman I had met on the trip and became fast friends with.  With Marlene as my very accommodating guide and interpreter we […]


New Image in Location Portraits Portfolio

I added a new image to my online portfolio, “Location Portraits”.  It is of my friend Sean, a very talented performer.  We did a shoot a while ago and he wanted to go out on the fire escape to shoot a few.  It was in the middle of winter and very very cold out, but […]


A Chef and His Ingredients

I shot this at Bread’s Bakery near Union Square in Manhattan.  I was mostly photographing what goes on behind the scenes in the kitchen.  There is a lot of activity at this place and they put out great product.  Obviously the themes of this diptych are light and steam.  


Sunrise Over Lake Jackson, Florida

I found myself in central Florida last week for a couple of days.  I was staying at a motel (I love motels) on Lake Jackson in Sebring, home of the Sebring International Raceway.  I woke up early so I thought I would see if I could find a place to shoot the sunrise.  This is […]


Chinatown Pedestrian

I was walking around a bit in Chinatown yesterday morning seeing what promising light and environments were around that may yield interesting images for my “Vague Recollections” series.  I was intrigued by a white wall lit directly by the already bright morning light at 9am.  I liked the bit of graffiti that was on the […]


Maintenance Man With Hose

I had just finished shooting landscapes of Carl Schurz Park and was walking across the street when I saw this maintenance man hosing down the front of an apartment building.  I photographed him hosing a door, then walked up and asked if I could take a picture of him looking into the camera.  After I […]


iPhoneArt Gallery – WayneGreer – Goodbye to May

I am slowly – and at first very reluctantly – finding my way into the world of  photography apps for my iPhone that do some wonderful effects.  This first happened when I read an article somebody had posted on Linked In.  From there I have been exploring for the past couple of days.  There is […]


Young Man in Union Square

I took my camera with me as I ran out the door in a hurry last Saturday.  I decided at a spur of the moment to leave my apartment early so that I could take advantage of the sunny weather and spend time shooting in and around Union Square Park.  When I got there and […]
