I am now living in Boston. I am a seasoned veteran photographer with over 20 years experience plus 18 years experience previously in video and film production as a video cameraman in NYC.
I use top of the line Nikon Gear. My main rig is a Nikon D800 with 24-70mm f2.8 lens and SB-910 Flash Unit. My second camera is a Nikon D810 with a Sigma Art 135mm f2 lens. I have an assortment of other lenses but these two do the job.
The power of a photograph is undeniable. Photography is an art form and journalistic at the same time. I love the artistic and technical aspects of photography. In addition to the moment in time and space when you press the shutter capturing emotions in light and shadow.
I love the creativity that photography gives me and I love making people happy. Processing images. It’s like magic. We all like magic. It’s exciting.
My father was a snap shot nut and took a ton of family photos. I love looking at those family photos over and over. When I was 11 years old I was given my first camera the Kodak Brownie. I loved that camera and took it to school with me. That's when I started photographing everything and that ultimately led to a lighting and freelance cameraman career in NYC and now a career as a professional photographer. I learned the craft of lighting by working with great cinematographers in the film business. Then I discovered photoshop which had an impact forceful enough to change my life. I loved every minute working in the film business but photoshop brought me back to my roots. I was hooked!
