Hello! And thanks for stopping by.
My serious interest in photography began when, as a fresh-faced kid, I landed in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan in the early '90s. In dire need of a job, I lucked into few assisting gigs with a professional photographer and friend. I lugged gear, loaded film, directed lights and went for coffee.
Since that time, photography has been constantly evolving in my life. It's been a hobby, a passion, a sport, a job, an art, a form of communication, a form of documentation and a constant study. In fact, I can't remember a time when I wasn't photographing regularly.
With time I've gained experience and knowledge about photography and technique: Lighting, framing, depth, composition, color, texture, subject, background, and everything else piled into that picture which speaks a thousand words, but also into the equipment, the gadgets, the gear -- in this rapidly changing technological world -- that records it all.
I'm interested in capturing the "essence" of a person, the exact moment when guard and pretense are removed, and also in the unique energy of places, spaces, objects, moments of interaction.
I'm Brooklyn-based, but I love to travel. I'm professionally equipped for any situation and a very capable re-toucher.
