The Past

I became a full time photographer when I graduated from Rochester Institute of

Technology (RIT) in 1985.  In 1988, I opened my own studio - shooting advertising,

marketing, and editorial projects. For eight years from 1997 -2005, I took a leave

from the freelance world and worked as a full time staff photographer for Kodak. My

projects at Kodak varied from exciting fashion shoots & elaborate studio sets to

portraits of personalities such as Senator Bill Bradley, world renowned glass artist Dale

Chihuly and baseball great Stan "The Man" Musial, amongst many others.

The Present

A select list of current clients include Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, Bank of America,

University of Rochester, Family Circle, ESPN Magazine and numerous advertising

agencies and design firms.

My work has been featured in two "How to" books:  Digital Fashion Photography and

The Lighting Cookbook.  Popular Photography & Rangefinder magazines have profiled 

me. Most recently my art imagery is being exhibited in the Memorial Art Gallery Finger

Lakes Exhibition. The areas most prestigious juried art show.

Not only do I work as a photographer, I also teach photography at RIT as an adjunct

faculty member. In addition to shooting portraits, I continue to shoot weddings and

for advertising & commercial clients. Photography is my passion and a my full time

profession, not a weekend side business.
