I started making images at the age of 5 in 1956, and continued all my life. Having learned the basics of photography from friends and mentors, I was able to become production still photographer for BACK TO THE FUTURE - THE RIDE in the 1980s. Andy Warhol's assistant, Gerard Malanga, mentored me and had me print a large show for him, and I conserved the collection of Lucien Aigner for a decade, where I learned little-known wet-darkroom techniques in the 1980s. In the mid 1990s I got bit by the digital photography bug and put down my film cameras to explore the new digital frontier. I now produce enhanced images that have viewers feeling the image because the textures fool their eyes.
