I was commissioned last year by Time Out to photograph its latest New York City Guidebook, which was published this week. The mandate was to photograph 60 locations in 30 days, which took me to all five boroughs.
Photographing a guidebook is all about versatility in terms of photography skills. A city guidebook in particular is so much more than waiting for the right light and weather to photograph major sights. A typical day which runs well into the night would include restaurants, music venues, shops, art galleries, hotels and comedy acts.
Like many travel photographers I spend several months a year photographing cities around the world. It was a pleasure to photograph my hometown from top to bottom and discover new places along the way.
