I have over 40 years of creative professional photography and graphic design experience, handling a wide range of commercial, industrial/corporate, fine art and nature/wildlife assignments.
Growing up in Bayside, Queens, New York, I became interested in photography at an early age, thanks to my father and uncle, who were very talented amateur photographers. After graduating from high school, I studied first at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, earning a AAS degree in Fashion Photography, then later at the Rochester Institute of Technology where I earned my BFA in Photographic Illustration.
I’ve worked on staff and/or contract for Prudential Insurance, Lockheed Martin, and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, as well as ran my own photography and graphic design business for 10 years in Wilmington, Delaware. At Akin Gump in Washington, D.C., I was part of their marketing group, involved with both producing high quality graphic design work and handling the occasional photography assignment for the firm. More recently, I started working in the Office of Command Communications at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as staff photographer on a part-time contract basis.
On the fine art photo side, I have exhibited in a number of one-man and group shows in New York City, the metropolitan Washington, DC area and on-line. I have in recent years produced a number of photo books covering documentary, wildlife/nature and pictorial themes.
