I am a photographer and Oscar nominated filmmaker. My love of cameras began at 4, when my cameraman father recruited me to ride an alligator in a theatrical short. From then, I yearned to cast spells with a camera. - I quit school at 15, taking photos of the Rolling Stones and selling images to various periodicals. I co-founded Trilogy Entertainment and produced and/or directed 16 major films and 200 TV shows like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Backdraft, Blown Away, Moll Flanders, The Twilight Zone and the Outer Limits revivals. - I approach Photo subjects that magnetize me as sensory explorations, allowing intuition to guide me. My portraits are candid and very intuitive. -- With my nature photography, wether it is my favorite Hawaiian stream, waves on the North Shore in Oahu, a Red Maple tree in Napa and Koi in ponds in California. My images are full-frame exposures, un-cropped, using RAW. I am the human algorithm that judges my discoveries.
