I've spent the last ten years studying photgraphy. I use various camera bodies, lenses, apertures, shutter speeds, and invest time understanding light, indoors, outside, and inbetween the cracks. After years of shooting instinctively and studing the greats like: Leibovitz, Avendon, Adams, Winogrand, Arbus and Henri Cartier-Bresson. I realized I needed hands on teaching and took a workshop with Harvey Stein. It was then I  stumbled upon a passion – up close and personal street portraits. After that it became macro, nuetral density filters and shooting at night. I haven't pigeon-holed myself, because I'm framing shots all the time, even in my dreams.

 

I consider myself a life long art student, or at least a sponge for all things creative. The learning and growing never ends.

 

I graduated from Pratt Inst. of Art in 83', where I studied commercial art and photography, majoring in illustration. 

 

After 25 years in Advertising , working my way up to Group Creative Director, I retired. While the work was stimulating, I never enjoyed "the establishment" and lamented as great concepts got watered down. Thanks to my life partner, I was able to quit the rat race, which has freed my soul and given me tremendous happiness.
