I shoot Sports, Action, and Fashion for editorial and advertising. I am experienced in digital slr, 35mm, medium format and 4 X 5 as well as studio lighting for indoors or outdoors. I can and have handled large productions as well as small and welcome any challenge. I have a quick turnaround for the final product or can transmit images via the internet.
I am proud of my many years of operating a studio in Manhattan, N.Y. where I won awards and produced important photography for major companies. I was fortunate to get assignments from product shots to national ads involving still lifes,people and producing fine art. After relocating to Florida, that good fortune continues. Photography is endless and always new, with the greatest reward of having personal satisfaction with the finished product.
