BIO: “I believe in the photographer’s magic, the ability to stir the soul with light and shape and color. Through the photographer’s eyes a kiss becomes a romance, a stretch of fabric is a costume of endless possibilities, ...a face has the playful vibrancy that describes a lifetime… I strive for a visual split second capture that tells a story with mood, style, motion, and mystery by creating powerful color, and striking black & white images. My juxtaposed vision is very much influenced by the East-West culture that I have grown up with.” From Iman to Claudia, Helena to Amber, in Paris or New York, to the Masaii in East Africa, people in Zanzibar or the Sahara Desert, BMW to Volvo and Husky Energy, “I enjoy the challenge of creating contemporary images with dynamic visual stories that speak effectively of the cultural context.” “I am a fast shooter and a dependable photographer with well focused priorities.” Through the years I’ve taken timeless images of beautiful women, movie stars, and personalities.”

"In Zanzibar, we still fly on carpets. The Island of Cleopatra has fossil for sand. Take a fisherman's boat at midnight to visit the island under a clear full moonlit Turkish night, the sky the color of the blue of Cuba, the ocean waves slapping the boat with so much passion relentlessly declaring its love over and over again...ah! the feeling of capturing what you see through the viewfinder, in a moment it's gone!...where do these fabulous moments come from, where do they go to......"
