I studied Photography from 1962 - 1967 at the Institute of Design in Chicago and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1967 to 1970. I began photographing the nude with Wendy, my wife while in graduate school. Then for over forty years I explored various techniques and processes while photographing the nude as a central theme.
In 1976 joined the Board of Directors of the Catskill Center for Photography and served as Vice President of the Board for ten years.
In 1982, I won a NYSCA-CAPS Photography Fellowship with a series of infrared nude images that I made of Wendy. With that series, I produced a monograph, "BODY LIGHT-Passages in a Relationship" in 1989.
I have taught at Purdue University, Pratt Institute, SUNY New Paltz, Bard College, Ramapo College, Mercy College before I came to Marist College twenty years ago. I currently head the Photography program at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
In 1998 I began to work with pinhole.
