Bio

I discovered photography as a creative medium in 1975 and my degree reflects my interest in photography as a fine art medium. Though I have pursued commercial ventures with my technical knowledge of the medium, my love of photography is singularly as an expressive and creative art form. My commercial work involved architectural work ,with one project published in Architectural Digest as well as in a monograph on the architect Frederick Fisher by Rizzoli Publications. Other commercial work includes catalog illustration, industrial photography, and work for museums, gallerys, and art collectors. My own photographic art work has been shown from local to international venues and is collected publicly and privately.
