Welcome to what I hope will be an enjoyable visit.
I was introduced to photography some forty years ago. I didn’t know much about what I was doing at first but read the usual photo magazines and did a good job of recording family events.
About the same time, I discovered an oasis called Jamaica Bay Wildlife refuge. It reminded me of the areas I visited in southern New Jersey as a youngster. It wasn’t long before I was taking the camera with me on nature walks recording some of the beautiful scenes and creatures I witnessed in the preserve.
After moving to Long Island I joined a camera club and began to take photography seriously. Club photography helped me develop an individual style. I was able to join my love of nature and of image making. I was twice blessed. Over time, I’ve expanded into other areas but my favorite is recording forms of nature.
I'm shooting film. I haven't moved to digital like most of the crowd. Slides are my preference, shooting a variety of films. I'm also having fun with Black and White positives. Cameras and lenses are all Konica.
I have received a number of awards for my work. My images have been seen in local galleries and shows. My lighthouse work was recently published in Tom Beard's book "Lighthouses of America."
Check the Gallery section of this site and select your favorite topic to see how I have interpreted it.
As an amateur I have freedom to select my own focus and projects. Recently I have concentrated on photographing lighthouses around the US. I have a collection of all the Long Island lights photographed on Infrared film. I also love nature and scenic photography. I have even done work with figure skating.
