Day 2 in New York shooting with Paige

Day two, we left our dirty Airbnb (this is no reflection on Airbnb,  just not that apartment in Greenwich), We checked-into the only 2 bedroom hotel left in New York.. Right in the middle of Times Square. Amazing for the views Time Square gets so busy with tourists 24/7. It was stinking hot (33 degrees with 110% humidity and not a breath of fresh air), mmmmm and the smells of New York on a hot day.


Paige from Major Models New York, and I set off to get out of the hustle and bussle of New York and walked 15 blocks in the humidity and smells to Central Park. We found some amazing bridges to shoot under (not just for the tunnelling light, but also for the slightly breeze). We lasted a good hour but the humidity wore us both out, so we headed back to Time Square and shot a bit of street on the way. Here are the photos from the 1 hour shoot.

I was also in New York today doing some street photography for the fist time. It was hot but I had a great time . Excellent work Peter


Absolutely adore this shoot Peter!

The two of you seem to have wonderful synergy, even under those torturous (I hate humidity!) conditions. Beautiful art, wonderful images… thank you both!


Love the photos, not sure how you managed to get to 110% humidity though 😉


    I think 110% is a New York thing 🙂


Stunning as always Peter! Love the second image and last as my favs. Beautiful tone as always!


    thanks 🙂 mine too


Great images. Looking forward to your London natural light workshop!


Love your work. You always manage to bring out the best. Can’t wait for your next series. When are you back in Toronto or Montreal?
