I've had a camera in my hand since I was twelve years old. I grew up around my lower east side Grandfather, Milty who was a professional photographer as well.
I watched him tinker with photo gear in his shop, observe in awe as he blazed on set and admire as he would navigate through photographic challenges, make his clients burst out in laughter and create beautiful images.
I thought to myself...I'm going to do that!
I studied fine art photography at the University at Suny Albany in New York, under Phyllis Galembo.
After thirteen years as a commercial fashion photographer for an international print company I decided to freelance.
I enjoy the entire process from problem solving, traveling, meeting new creative people to laugh, collaborate and brainstorm with...but in the end and most importantly delivering killer images to my clients.
Thanks for allowing me to do what I love to do!
