I have been pursuing a career as a fine art photographer since I began to travel in my early 20s. Having studied painting, sculpture and design at the Chicago Art Institute, the addition of photography as another manifestation of the visual arts seemed only logical. 

Other famous American photographers such as Irving Penn and Gordon Parks were also active in the field of painting and drawing. My interest in the abstract art of the mid 20th century manifested itself in my fine art photography of abstract color photographs of walls which you will find under its own category on the website.

As a creative photographer my interest has led me in a number of directions. Architecture fascinates me. It manifests in my abstractions of forms, ruins, walls, steps and arches.

Within you will find portfolios on the following subjects:

Another subject that has long held a fascination for me are images of flowers. They are as much a study of light as they are the study of the form of flowers, as it is the light that gives form to the floral image. This is much the same case as it is with my female figure studies. Artistic nude photography in black and white, expresses the light falling on the nude female form to enhance the image.

There are photographs of landscapes and seascapes for sale as well as other categories under the heading of Nature Photography. I include in this category my aerial photographs of Napa California, they are contemporary landscape photography as seen from the unique vantage point of a small plane. I have also included images from France, Turkey, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Japan and Morocco.

Not too long ago, one of the gallery owners in which I was exhibiting commented to me as we were looking over my body of work in preparation for a one-man show: “If we were to exhibit all of the portfolios we are looking at, people would think it was a group show!”
