About me

I’ve dedicated my life to the creation of images, both still and moving.

After receiving my Master of Fine Arts in photography and film-making, I spent a decade in education, the last faculty position held with Sandy Skoglund at Rutgers University, Newark.

Being an educator – that is, sharing information -  remains a part of my working fabric with the inclusion of clients as collaborators in the sessions’ creative process.

Regarding events, I function as a sniper with my camera, shooting in an un-obstructive style by using my long lens as a documentarian’s tool with minimal interference.  

As importantly to my shooting style, I am a trained distance athlete –swimmer, biker, marathoner – treating each event as an endurance race. Well aware of how to prepare for a long shoot and how to pace myself during what is typically a non-stop, densely packed series of activities, my team and I will remain vigilant until the final light is off.

I also play the saxophones.
