I began my photographic journey in the early 1980’s. I started with a Canon AE-1 35mm film SLR. During that time my photographic interests were my children, family events, vacations, and landscapes. I eventually began to develop my own film.
In 2005, I switched over to digital. I began using Nikon digital SLR cameras. I quickly adapted to Photoshop and the digital darkroom, not as a way to “fix” photographs but to enhance them as was done in the traditional darkroom. My photographic journey was beginning to become a passion. I study everything I can get my hands on.
I received a formal photography education at the New York Institute of Photography, which expanded my photographic interests. I have been published in both newspapers and magazines. In addition to my earlier interests, I now photograph fashion, models, portraits, commercial, products, still life, and fine art.
Two years ago, I began teaching and leading workshops, mentoring and teaching both beginning and experienced photographers.
