A simple journal of my thoughts on photography and the process of making work.

Is ART in NYC dead?

new york headshot photographer I read a somewhat interesting article in the New York Times posing the question whether or not the art scene was dead in NYC. Basically, can art survive in a city with the "$50 entree and the $3000 studio apartment." The final conclusion was that, yes, it is currently thriving... But if you get a chance to read it, it feels more like it is surviving...and not in the city...but in Bushwick. I wish they would admit that the artists are now in Brooklyn and have been for quite some time now. The SoHo up and coming studio artist is long gone. The Factory closed long ago.

Peter spends much of his time shooting in Los Angeles and New York. The actor headshots that Peter has shot over the years have been seen in The Lone Ranger, ARGO, Jack Reacher, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Savages, Shutter Island, Warrior, Halloween, The Lords of Salem, American Gangster, Burn After Reading, Transformers, Sin City, Love Liza, Boadwalk Empire, True Blood, Dexter, Weeds, Coherence and on so many network television shows and commercials that it is kind of weird.
