Photography Bio


Photography always appealed to me as the highest of art forms.  Having now spent years photographing everything I come across in my surroundings, I can't help but see art tableaus everywhere I look.
 
Studying with master photographer Minor White at MIT sharpened my appreciation for outstanding imagery. His course taught the zone system of photo exposure and introduced me to his sophisticated sense of pure form. Enormously inspiring.
After years as VP of Internet Strategy and Technology for a Global Fortune 500 company, I returned to my passion for the art of photography.  My diverse photographic interests include event photography, street photography and portraiture.

I am on the board of directors of the Westchester Professional Photographers Association (www.westchesterppa.org) and am past President of the Color Camera Club of Westchester (www.colorcameraclub.com).
