These are posts of my most recent shooting. The theme is simple. Photographs are happening every minute of every day, 24/7 and I like to collect them. These galleries are about exploring and remaining open so that I can find great, unexpected images…or so that they can find me.

In The Wings With The Dance Theatre Of Harlem

By | 2013-07-12T18:10:11+00:00 July 12th, 2013|Journal, Posts|

I first saw the Dance Theatre of Harlem when they were performing Firebird in New York City.  It was in the early 1980s and it is still my favorite dance performance, ever.  I recently had the opportunity to photograph the company from the wings at Jacob's Pillow.  What a privilege!

In The Wings. Intimate Images Of Dance In The Berkshires

By | 2016-11-07T16:47:01+00:00 March 21st, 2013|Journal|

For the last three summers I have had the great gift of backstage access at Jacob's Pillow Dance.  I am able to interact with the dancers and document their intimate moments of excitement, camaraderie, exhaustion and triumph.  Here are a few of my favorite images from this very entertaining assignment.

Cruising The Waters Off Manhattan

By | 2013-03-01T20:31:23+00:00 March 1st, 2013|Journal|

Shooting boat to boat in the crowded waters of New York can be challenging.  I have to coordinate with multiple captains, their crews and often helicopter pilots to make sure that thousands of tons of ships traveling at 25 knots or more end up in exactly the right place and do so safely.  [...]

Mexico / My Midwinter Escape To A Land Of Color And Warmth

By | 2017-01-11T14:44:28+00:00 December 18th, 2012|Journal, Posts|

I left the wonder of winter in the Berkshires behind for the first time and had a revelation in San Miguel De Allende. March can be warm and friendly and colorful in Mexico! Who knew? Well, evidently most people know, I just missed the memo. Despite how the media tried to terrorize us with drugs, [...]

Morocco / Photos From My Return Visit After Twenty Five Years And My Entire Career Away.

By | 2017-01-11T14:48:19+00:00 December 18th, 2012|Journal, Posts|

I first traveled to Morocco in 1976.  I had been a professional photographer for all of eighteen months and an art director at the Martin Agency in Richmond, Virginia hooked me up with  the "Upper Nidderdale Youth Club Safari To Morocco".  It turned out that his sister was planning a trip for a local youth [...]

Thoughts On Creating My Image Archive / Stock Library.

I carry the visual record of every image that I have ever shot in my head. As a result, I am the best search engine that Scott Barrow Photography has at it's disposal for stock requests. I marvel that with all of this data in storage that I can walk and chew gum at the [...]

Places That Honor And Have Fun With Food

By | 2011-11-14T15:27:16+00:00 November 14th, 2011|Journal, Posts|

What is it about a restaurant that makes you want to return? How are architects able to design an amazing space that supports rather than overpowers the food that is served there? It is a very subtle art. It requires great insight and a quiet ego to offer exceptional design and comfort on the same [...]

The Towers

By | 2016-11-07T16:47:04+00:00 September 11th, 2011|Journal, Posts|

The Towers were in my life, my work and my viewfinder for over 20 years. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that owned them is still a client and the extensive library of my photography that they commissioned was in the Towers on September 11th. I did not lose anyone on that [...]

Noche Flamenca at The Mahaiwe

By | 2012-03-05T19:09:12+00:00 May 2nd, 2011|Journal, Posts|

I spent an afternoon backstage with Noche Flamenca this week. It was a powerful performance put on by dancers and players that truly enjoy each others company. As their press release states: Noche Flamenca captures the essence of traditional flamenco without the use of tricks or gimmicks. Instead, the company relies on the exceptional talents [...]

The NYC Easter Parade

I am in New York at least once a month for work or play. When there, I spend all of the time that I can on the streets exploring. Searching for all of the photos that Jay Meisel hasn't found yet. So, I am walking down Fifth Avenue following a very cool hat and wondering [...]
