I began my photography career in New York City after graduating from Pratt Institute. Over the next 30 years, I worked directly for clients such as ABC Television, AT&T, Kodak and Pepsi. While working with major ad agencies as well as the Black Star photo agency between 1976 and 2001, I produced work for clients including Fisher Price, Quaker Oats, Wendy’s, Myers Rum, Eagle Snacks, Gerber, Visa, and The US Army. From 1981 to 1987, I was a principal photographer for Opera News, working with well-known opera personalities such as Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, James Levine, and Kiri Te Kanawa. From the 1980s, I worked on accompanying materials for recording projects with London, Decca Records, Columbia, and Sony. My work has appeared in People Magazine, Vanity Fair, Cigar Aficionado, Cosmopolitan, Self, Woman, Parents, New York, Saturday Review, Connoisseur, and Reader’s Digest. I taught studio photography at the School of Visual Art in New York City from 1990 to 1994. Some of the most fulfilling recognition I've received over the years include the Creative Award from Art Direction Magazine, a DESI award from Graphic Design USA, the Andy Award of Merit from the Advertising Club of New York, and a Legends of Advertising award.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
More about me
In December 2013, I was having some Internet problems. I went outside and saw that a pole had fallen on my driveway. It started a fire, and when I used a rake to try to put the fire out, it touched a wire, and I was electrocuted. The electric current traveled from my right hand through my body to my left hand, and I was thrown into a tree and knocked unconscious. I ended up in the hospital for about 60 days, had three fingers amputated from my left hand, and eventually lost my right hand as well. So my wife and I had to figure out a new way to survive. She became my full-time caregiver and we sold our house in New Hope, Pennsylvania. We were able to move into our friend's studio in Westhampton, Long Island. In 2018 we bought a home in Litchfield, a small town in the northwest corner of Connecticut. It took me about two years to recover physically from the accident, and once I got healthy enough, I was inspired to dive back into my first love, photography, and I had to re-learn how to do post-processing. I spend lots of time working in Lightroom, Photoshop, and other programs. I feel pretty good most of the time. We have two Bernese Mountain dogs, and we get plenty of visitors, including our four wonderful grown children and two grandchildren.
