Wanted

An extensive investigation into the whereabouts of missing billionaire Chris Cringle has left authorities utterly clueless. Cringle, last seen when this photograph was taken, claimed to have entered a state of severe depression after losing his North Pole mansion to foreclosure and filing for bankruptcy — but recent evidence uncovered in a dispute with retail giant Toys-R-Us indicates Cringle may have …

Back Shots

Arguably the best position to approach from in certain situations – but the rear view of a subject less often becomes the target of my lens. Nonetheless, looking back at some of those rare occasions I have shot someone in the back, the images tend to identify with static postures; mood; motion; contrasty lighting; or fashion – while I usually …

Occupy Wall Street

Eleven photographs captured during the eleventh hour of the day, on 11-11-11, at Occupy Wall Street, NYC. It was pure coincidence the only opportunity I had to attend the protest turned out to be at this precise time, while I could only spare about an hour before heading to the airport to catch my flight. And thanks to Gogo In-Flight …

Raising the Calibre

In recent days I’ve been taking it to the Sydney streets armed with an almighty 300mm – my workhorse lens that prompted repeated comparisons of my techniques, to those of a sniper’s. Probably most memorable – while sniping from the sidewalk window at a bar in NY, a stranger next to me leaned over and said: “Maaaan, you’re like a …

According to Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the campaign is set to launch within days and will focus on highlighting some of the many …

Sydney Spring

A geographically opposite metropolis trails the previous post and practically parallels — with spells of splendid weather. Definitely “winning” I hate (but have) to say — to see the two best seasons in one month is truly a blessing. Below reveals some of the mystery contents of a Sniper’s lunch box – the one-hour slot when I lurk down a …

New York Autumn

A beautiful sight it is once the leaves begin to change color throughout the City of New York – but who gives a sh!t?  After all – what’s more beautiful than people? [Absolutely nothing of course] A one-day gallivant took me through the Meat Packing District; Upper East Side; Soho; the East Village; and Little Italy — and these are …

Labor Day Parade

Sniper’s Log | Monday 2011-09-05 — I made it back to New York just in time to catch the annual West Indian Day parade, in my old hometown, Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Usually attracting over 2 million spectators/participants, its the biggest parade held in NYC and ties directly into my original roots — as a condensed version of the Carnivals hosted …

9-11 10th Anniversary

Hundreds rally within a one-block radius of Ground Zero on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 — seeking support for a new investigation into the events that (really) caused the Twin Towers and WTC Tower 7 to collapse.   Two blocks down the road — a second demonstration takes place simultaneously — calling for and end to racism against muslims. A …
