Photography has been a true passion since my father gave me my first
Kodak Brownie camera. Ever since, I have been taking photographs of
people, nature, and the many parts of the world that I have been lucky
enough to live and visit.
I am having a new show titled "Rain Forests" at Gallery 14 in Hopewell, New Jersey (www.photogallery14.com) which will run from June 3 to July 3, 2011. The gallery is open from noon to 5PM Saturdays and Sundays and by appointment. Some of the photos can be viewed in the "Galleries" area of this web site.
I love photographing people. For me, the one photograph in a thousand
that reveals something about a person is really special. If my photographs
of a person are able to portray some inner feeling about the individual—a
particular strength of character, a confidence in what they are doing, an
obvious love for another, a time of reflection, or just a simple delight
in the moment—then I am happy.
