34 Years of experience

My work and interests span a wide range. After many years as a fashion & beauty photographer, I have shot in many different studio and location environments and all kinds of lighting.


Most of my work was about creating a mood, which is the main part of fashion and music shoots. With business headshots and portraits, I worked to make my clients look totally professional and at the top of their games.


I’ve shot many dogs, sometimes alone, sometimes with their human guardians. I do several each day while walking my beloved Augie.


I’ve shot many thousands of actors and models, including many total beginners for their agencies. I’m good at helping them get started with moods, attitudes, and poses that will add sparkle to their images. I’ve done many advertising, editorial, and catalog assignments.


My more than 30 years of professional experience prepares me to deal with whatever comes up, overcoming obstacles and exploiting opportunities to create outstanding images. Bringing ideas to shoots is just as important as bringing photo equipment.

Awards, honors and recognition

I've won awards for creative excellence and won some photo contests. In the beginning of my career, in 1988, I took a fashion photography course at Parsons College in NYC. I tied for first place.
