About this pro

Photography is what tells the story of my life. Ever since I borrowed my brothers Konica rangefinder I’ve been hooked. I spent most of my time in high school in the darkroom. After moving to NYC, I learned street photography from a photojournalist, then I started working as a commercial still life photographer using film and 8x10 cameras. Between jobs I did many Black & White portraits in the studio. Another photographer I worked with for 12 years, was a top advertising pro that shot everything. We both started shooting digital as technology increased. Photoshop changed the game. That plays a major role in imaging. My transition into digital was so liberating. I do miss shooting infra-red film. Love candid shots - but now I mainly focus on portraiture. Now I love helping others learn.  

Independence. Doing what I love at my own pace.
