About this pro

Hi. I am a Long Island based professional photographer and studio owner. My work has been published in photography (eg Professional Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, etc) and fine art magazines, and exhibited in art galleries. I have also published a book on photography (Body & Soul published by Focal Press). I conduct occasional small group workshops in my space on the business of photography, posing, lighting and retouching. I am also available for one-on-one coaching/mentoring and instruction. 

I am passionate about the entire image-making process. Learning to SEE what others will so often fail to notice. Seeing light in a way others do not. Capturing the beauty of nature, faces and the human form. And understanding how to manipulate images in post to bring out their potential...or create something magical.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

prior to becoming a photographer I was a corporate trainer and organizational psychologist. I used to teach a course at Hofstra called what were you born to do. I facilitated career transition and growth for a wide range of individuals. I am therefore able to support emerging photographers considering this as a new career as well as the hobbyist simply looking to build skills.
