Tell us about your background in photography. How did you get started, and how long have you been into it?

Film photographer since age 15, turned digital in 2000. Like to do adventure and travel photography telling a story. I enjoy helping out as a photographer's assistant.

What type of photography do you enjoy the most? People, landscapes, sports?

I enjoy architecture, sports, macro/documentation, and all aspects of travel and adventure photography, especially from in the action (on the mountain or in my kayak.) Trying to improve at portraiture, both candid and formal.

Share your work with others: Website or Instagram Account

I worked at Nikon Inc. (Long Island NY) and one of the urban legends was of an employee who took a picture of a visiting Japanese higher up with a Canon camera and was fired. I won 6th prize in one of the competitions but have used Nikon ever since... They play leap-frog with the features in their bodies, but the value is in the glass.
