Edward brings a unique approach to his work as he combines his branding sensibilities with his passion for crafting incisive visuals. His portraits are often strategically considered with clients in work sessions to ensure that the concept is precisely on brand. He is Founding Partner of Gravity Branding, a group known for advising well known companies and for creating some of the most memorable brands in the world. For example, he is personally recognized for having created the names WiFi, Expedia.com and Herceptin among many others.

Edward’s passion for photography first emerged at the age of 12 when he was exposed to the works of Diane Arbus—specifically, “Boy with a toy hand grenade in Central Park, 1963.” Inspired by his first camera, a Kodak Instamatic X-15F and his father’s beautiful Kodachromes, Edward has never stopped loving photography. His first real works were realized with a Nikon FM2 in the 1980s. He captured images of his surroundings, models and musicians in Manhattan and Staten Island in his 20s and his work continues to evolve today. He studied photography at the School of Visual Arts. He has exhibited his photographs in galleries in Amsterdam, San Francisco and Mill Valley.
