Thank you for visiting my site and for your interest in my work. I have been a professional photographer for over thirty years. I love photography and still get excited about every assignment and every opportunity to create new images.
I fell in love with photography when I was sixteen years old. I saved up money from my part time job and started buying old cameras and began shooting still photographs and making short films. I started doing photography professionally at the age of 18. I worked my way up through better and better jobs, and at the age of 21 and completely self-taught I became a staff photographer at Rutgers University, where I worked for eight and a half years while attending classes at night. Then I moved to Portland Oregon to begin my freelance business that I continued for 14 years shooting for local, regional and national clients. After that I moved back east to take a position at Colgate University, where I was the University Photographer for eight years.
I won over a dozen awards for my work while at Colgate University, including several first-place awards and a Fuji New Approach Award from UPAA / University Photographers' Association of America. I am also the recipient of a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship for Media Arts / Film Making.
I have extensive experience shooting editorial, commercial, travel, education and healthcare images, as well as photographing people on location and in the workplace. I’ve photographed in many different situations and locations including operating rooms, classrooms, computer clean rooms, heavy industrial locations, and while hanging out of helicopters. I’ve traveled widely on assignment, both domestically and internationally.
Clients include The New York Times, Northwest Airlines, Rolling Stone, Elektra Entertainment, Northwest Natural Gas, Nike, Georgia-Pacific, Fujitsu, New Seasons Market, Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Northwest Tibetan Cultural Association, Oregon Health Sciences University, University of Oregon, University of Portland, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Colgate University, Rutgers University, as well as many others.
