Someone told me that I better have something on this page so that people who've never met me can get some idea about what I'm like as a person.

You might have gotten to this page because you like my pictures and want to know more. I think that's great! But I've got a bit of a problem....

I'm not very good at talking about myself. I'd rather talk to you. That's because I love people. All kinds of people. Old ones, young ones, short ones, tall ones. All shapes, sizes, and colors.

I guess that's one of the reasons I became a photographer in the first place. Well, actually it's probably that and because it's in my DNA: My dad was kind of a big shot advertising photographer in NYC in the '70s so I got to watch a master at work. He shot everything: people, products, locations, you name it. From the time I was old enough to carry a light stand or make a print, I got to help him. He really put me to work and I learned a lot. He had an advantage I don't have; I have to pay my assistants! Oh, well.I guess it all evens out...I didn't have to pay for my photography master classes with him.

As you can see from the rest of this site, I really do shoot all kinds of people. Even sometimes the ones who don't like to get photographed---but have to be because their ad agency, design firm, or corporate communications dept. said they had to. And you know what? We always have a good time together.

But you know... it's probably better if you just take a look around the site and give me a call if you need something. I'd be glad to help you any way I can.

Thanks for looking.
