I have worked professionally in New York City for over 40 years focusing on portrait, fine art, and dance photography. My travels have taken me from Venice Beach to Venice, Italy, from Death Valley to Red Square, often in the same week. I see everything as a portrait; a personality waiting to be captured whether the subject be a tattooed or pregnant woman, ballerina, or a Joshua Tree in the desert.

Between 1986 and 2012 I traveled the country and the world photographing for my clients. I was fortunate to have many understanding clients who used my fine art photography for their commercial advertising. During many of these trips there was often a day or two where I could go out and solely focus on my own work, photographing in nature or on the streets of Leningrad and Moscow. Five years ago I remembered I had moved to New York to become "an artist" and if I didn't stop traveling that goal would never be realized. In 2013 I began to publish my own dance related arts journal named VISION. The first issue was 28 pages. I have just finished VISION #8 featuring 68 pages of photo-essays ranging from the Soviet Union to my Intimate Portrait Project.
