Time Out New York – Assignment Showcase

A brief compilation of my favorite assignments from my Time Out years (2013—2018). All photographs have been taken ‘guerilla style’ – in a working environment, often at their busiest time – using portable lighting set-up and always hand-held. Minimal intrusion to the ongoing service was important, with express delivery, often with same-day turnaround around tight print deadlines.

Challenging and very, very enjoyable. I could not imagine a better way of immersing myself in the city’s bar and restaurant scene – from small mom-an-pop shops in Queens through most fashionable Manhattan establishments.
