Photography portfolio — 2007 & 2008

For a slideshow of some of my best photographs from my time at the Village Voice newspapers, click here (opens in a new window).  The photographs were mostly taken for food reviews, portraits of interview subjects and at public events.

During my work at the Village Voice newspaper, we were required to take our own photographs to accompany all our stories.

My photographs have also appeared in UK Motoring and Leisure Magazine and on Shmap.com.
