31 years photographic shooting experience; 25 years digital production experience. So much knowledge and understanding concerning the creation and nurturing of the humble image. And yet, with all the aforementioned, still learning. Learning never takes a vacation, a time out, or ends. You need an open mind and flexibility gaining insight with evolving crafts like photography and digital production. It's my pleasure to help individuals and companies with their imaging needs.

Night Time Photographic Workshops

You can explore unique locations amid the New York City landscape, accompanied with the encouragement and support of an experienced native photographer. I'm knowledgable shooting in diverse locations during the light of day, darkness of night. Seasoned interacting with varying personalities, finding common ground to unlock the technical understanding within. No matter the equipment on hand, you will have a better photographic game plan and feeling of peace when confronted by any imaging situation by workshop’s end.
