I worked as a professional commercial photographer since 1964. Started my own studio in 1970, then in 1982 decided on the Big Apple. Immigration into the USA wasn't easy. In 2008, I decided I had enough advertising work and started to shoot for myself only, in story telling.
Born in Hamburg Germany 1947, moved to Montreal Canada in 1952 where I learned photography on the job and started my own studio in advertising, then in 1982 moved to Manhattan NYC to start over with a new studio. In '08 I retired from commercial fashion and advertising photography, and I'm starting a new career in publishing photography books. I'm finishing up my 1st book as we speak.
