Curled up in a misty place waiting for the sun to shine.

Thought you'd like another Lightroom Preset to play with:
I call this one Lime Popsicle
Grab it here:
And remember; presets are just the starting point. Go play and make it your own.
Stay inspired. And be inspiring, too

We all have hidden superpowers. 
(At least one. Usually more.)
We do. Every single one of us.
My belief is that each of us has a superpower related to each of the things we love. Imagine that: a superpower for every special person and passion in your life.
   Like photography. I think my superpower is being able to walk up to anyone and start a conversation. (Huge thanks to my Dad for passing on that gift)
And I'm a very good whisperer.
Think about yours. All of yours. Share if you're so inclined. Or just think about them and smile.

When I walk on by, girls be looking like damn he fly

The choice of music is quite important when working with models; to put them at ease, set the tone of the shoot and allow them the opportunity to stretch their wings and let go of their inhibitions for a while.

I'm sexy and I know it. LMFAO

Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.

One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.


So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love. 

I live in Briarcliff Manor, NY (just north of Manhattan) with my family, a huge menagerie of animals and what is quite possibly the largest collection of carved coconut heads in the world.
