When I moved to New York City in the mid-70s I thought I would become a portrait and fine art photographer. I quickly learned that was not the easiest way to earn a living. Although I've worked commercially as both a fashion and dance photographer, I always kept the idea of portraits in my mind. During any shoot, whether it be a fashion shot of a Broadway star or a ballet performance, the face in front of my camera is what captures my attention. Now, years later, I've been able to realize my dream. There is no longer a border between my art and my "work." They are the same.
