Artist Statement A Philadelphia native, I have lived in Baja California for the past 3 years.

I make photographs. Since my first Brownie Starflash when I was 6, I have tried to make photographs that make people think and touch an emotional spark in them. That is what motivates me as a photographer.

I started shooting as a stringer for newspapers and in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania.

I opened my commercial studio in Center City, Philadelphia in 1972. I shot catalogs for Spencer Gifts and Lenox China among others.

I shot fashion, runway and headshots until about 5 years ago as my wife and I started slowing to a merciful crawl and traveling and writing.

My work has appeared in magazines from Shutterbug to Sports Illustrated and I am a regular contributor for Trillium Art Magazine. I am a regular editor and contributor to Magazine and am a contributor to Luminous Landscape.
I have exhibited in Europe as well as the U.S.
My work hangs in the permanent collection of private collectors as well as corporate venues.
Currently, my work is in the permanent exhibit at Polo’s Gallery in Rosarito, Mexico.
I have published 6 books including Art of the Muse (books 1 and 2) as well as 'Italy, through my lens.' Paris, Through my Lens.' 'Ireland, through my lens.' and others.
