I have had a camera in my hands for as long as I can remember, and have been photographing professionally for 28 years. I love the entire process of photography - interacting with many interesting people, visualizing and sensing images, feeling the beauty of light falling on an object, and seeing and sharing the results. The camera is not just a tool to capture light, it is an extension of my mind's eye, and allows me to view the world from a distinct perspective.
I am an expert in digital photography and traditional film photography: Photoshop, Lightroom, color management, scanning, printing, digital cameras, studio lighting (strobe and tungsten), darkroom processing, and all formats of film cameras.
My career has spanned many categories. After starting my photography career in my photo studio in Boston, I spent several years in NYC photographing celebrity filled events and world-renowned artwork at Sotheby's auction house, as well as working on many interesting projects with clients in a wide variety of locations. I have managed photo shoots in New York City, Boston, London, Los Angeles, and photographed throughout Europe, California and Alaska. I have created product, portrait, landscape, fashion, and event photography to meet clients’ visual needs. And I have stood on top of the Crow’s Nest of Olana to photograph the stunning vistas of the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson Valley.
Since moving to the Hudson Valley / Catskill Mountains, I have continued to explore through my lens, and have worked with many regional clients.
