Having the opportunity to photograph the world around me has given me a better understanding of world cultures. There is nothing more satisfying than to capture scenes in a way that opens a person’s eyes. I studied at the New York Institute of Photography and received my certificate in 1983. Before getting into the stock photography field, I worked as a portrait and wedding photographer, including a number of years as a fashion photographer. Today I license my images for both commercial and editorial use and commission fine art prints.
