Image making as a photographer is a creative voyage I take everyday.

Born, raised and educated (Pratt Institute) in NYC, made me aware of 
the

visual treats of life. Capturing a city's bustle, nature's beauty, a 
human

face or body form, land and seascapes, as well as 
mankind's artistry in

design and architecture - each offering
beauty or grace, chaos or

darkness, raunch or richness, harmony or serenity - has been
 a life's 

passion.


This site is primarily dedicated to portraiture. Images shown are from

numerous model sessions, which also include post capture studio work.

It is here that I lay out a photographic canvas, and 
render images to

further express myself. 
Presented are portfolios in black & white and color

- both personal and commercial. 


The Mannequin and Folsom Fair Portfolios are marching toward 

completion with the addition of more photographs, which I am in the

process of editing. 
I plan to publish this work in book form, with the   

first being an essay titled "She Brought Legs to Church" - a journey

taken with photography and free verse.


Last year I added a second site, www.linefivestudio.com, which consists

of architecture, still lifes, land and seascapes, among other subjects.

Limited Edition prints, Archival Notes and Cards are available for purchase

on the site.


I am pleased to present this work, and thank you for interest in it.
