Not Beauty or Fashion photography but…

When the worlds greatest dentist

asks you to take photos for his website, you put fashion, beauty, and everything else on hold and head to the Bronx.

Dr. Robert Steinberger, East Tremont Dental, has been my dentist for longer than I care to admit. Throggs Neck is not exactly convenient to my home in Brooklyn, but he is well worth the trip. I have recommended him to friends and family in Manhattan, Connecticut and New Jersey who faithfully flock to the Boogie Down for their bi-annual checkups. He is that good! Dr. Steinberger originally hails from Brooklyn and has never forgotten his roots. He is honest, caring, smart, and has mad dental skillz. In the unlikely event that I ever move to Alaska, I will still have my teeth cleaned just north of the Whitestone Bridge.

Here are a few photographs I shot of the Doc, not fashion photography, but a thing of beauty.

Looking forward to seeing them up on his website!

NYC high school and middle school championship tournament held at the Harlem Armory.

Fifteen mats and lots of waiting for your turn.

My focus is on the William Alexander Middle School Generals, although the high school matches were outstanding.

Please note Sam surreptitiously giving me the finger.  I photoshopped it to a stump before distributing it to the other parents.

Before the tournament commenced, basic training at the Marine recruiting table.  I want to hear the adolescents tell the drill sergeant they are not doing homework.

Three generations of Slade…

Wounded warrior.

Adam and Geri make such a handsome couple.

Sam and Coach Streko

Detail of the photo I cropped out before emailing it to the coach.

Do we detect a theme?

Austin’s pin for the NYC Middle School 95 lb  division championship.

His dad is quick to point out there were only 3 entries and one of them was a girl.  I replied there are no asterisks or parenthesis in the record book;  Austin won his division and possibly had his greatest athletic accomplishment at the age of 12.

Sam shooting against a very tough opponent, wrestling up a weight class; 136 lbs.

We hope Sam gets into Midwood or Beacon HS so he can continue wrestling next season.
