HEN NIGHT

HEN NIGHT

Since being back in New York I rarely go anywhere without my camera. I get mocked for it all the time since I usually wind up dragging my whole kit(laptop, the works) with me. It sucks but it’s worth it to have my stuff at my fingertips. The other night I was out drowning my […]

SWEAT : MAKING THE WATER A COMFORT ZONE for NYT

SWEAT : MAKING THE WATER A COMFORT ZONE for NYT

Since being back in New York I am struggling to not only do good work but do work that does good for the community here. I got to do a piece for the NYT on a swim class for juvenile offenders. As the class instructor put it, these are the kids that need the most […]

MAD MEN( AND WOMEN) TAKE TIMES SQUARE

MAD MEN( AND WOMEN) TAKE TIMES SQUARE

Ahhh, the 1960′s. I’m talking the early 60′s when ladies in swanky dresses and guys in sharp hats, natty ties and suites were strolling the block. Last night there was screening of the 1960′s era show Mad Men in Times Square and it brought out the sharply dressed. It was probably the nicest night weather […]

SPINNING MY WHEELS

SPINNING MY WHEELS

12-08-08 NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE – Images by Keith Bedford In a few short weeks I will be pulling up stakes and moving to Asia. New York has been home for so long that everything just seems easy. I feel a little complacent. It seemed like a great idea a few months back as the […]

KILLING TIME: THE RETURN OF THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

KILLING TIME: THE RETURN OF THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

This week I am short on the rambling. I spent a little time the other day feature hunting for the Times as they needed a day floater to fill a little space. Later in the week I got to cover the All Points West concert. It’s still slow and I am trying not to die […]

A CURE FOR MY SUMMERTIME BLUES

A CURE FOR MY SUMMERTIME BLUES

On the boardwalk Summertime in the city tends to slow for we photojournalist. Government stops, everyone goes on vacation and it seems that news all around has headed off to the Hamptons for a dip in Diddy’s pool. After a few days of archiving and catching up on Law & Order re-runs I really needed […]

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN

WNBA’s first outdoor game at Arthur Ashe Stadium It’s funny I’ve been back in New York for three weeks now and for the most part all I’ve shot is events put out by press release. Now that’s not to say I look a gift horse in the mouth since this is of course the source […]

RAMBLING ON BA FLIGHT 112 OR WEEK 44

RAMBLING ON BA FLIGHT 112 OR WEEK 44

I am sitting on British Airway flight 112 to London listening to a surprisingly good Red Hot Chili Peppers album on my Ipod. As always I am wide awake for an overnight 8 hour flight. “Just in case something happens.” It’s not like I am going to open my shirt and find a red “S” […]

WEEK 3

WEEK 3

It’s week 3 and I am now have dual citizesnship here in Iowa and back home in New York. Strangely Iowa feels more like home than NYC does. The people are super friendly, the sun stays up until almost 10 and I can actually see stars when I look up to the sky. It is […]

WEEK 1

WEEK 1

I started this blog a year ago to introduce myself to my team at the Eddie Adams workshop. Sadly I have been lax at keeping up with it. Starting today I am trying to get a little more perspective on my work and have decided to submit one picture a week. Hopefully I can keep […]
