This above all, to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.
The immortal words of Shakespeare sum up my journey in photography, which has changed direction as I have changed over the years. Unlike Ansel Adams, who worked most of his life creating beautiful solutions to one creative problem, my metier has been to respond to a broad range of creative problems with solutions that can take anywhere from days to years to resolve. Whether through portraiture and illustration for Fortune 500 companies (I am a professional member of the American Society of Media Photographers), or expressive responses to the muses that inspire me (my first exhibit was in FOTO Gallery, NY, 1976, most recent at Studio Baxton Gallery in Brussels 2016), when the work is resolved I move on. A content thread that ties many of the creative projects together is the patina of people, sometimes myself included, found in places and things. Please contact me if you have a creative problem that needs solving, whether through commissions for art or commerce, filling a gallery with expressive photography, decorating an upscale hotel, making the official portrait of your state's governor, or traveling with your group of amazingly successful car dealers to any location on earth...I've got lots of experience in all of that!
