I miss my friend. I miss his clever conversation and interesting ideas. He was a great photographer and had a wicked sense of humor. I miss my friend.
I am a photographer of people with experience in editorial and advertising. I'm comfortable working with direction either from a distance or on site. My portraits are about the subject, they are character studies. They should be fun to look at...
To me each photo session is a social event and I enjoy the dynamics. Each moment is precious and is an opportunity to produce significant images. Given all this... sometimes a meaningful photograph... is just a matter of pushing the button at the right moment.
Most of what I shoot is lighted with electronic flash, all is digital. My studio is located Downtown Rochester NY.
I am currently photographing on a number of self generated projects which will eventually arrive at my portfolio.
