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 and grace,
chaos or darkness, raunch or richness, harmony and serenity - has
been a life's passion.
This site is dedicated to street and studio work. The images of the
urban landscape, faces in a crowd, posed models, among other
subjects are taken back to the studio for post capture work.
It is here that I lay out a photographic canvas, and render images
to further express myself. Presented are portfolios in color and
black and white - both personal and commercial.

brushstrokes. I have always had an appetite for mirrored imagery, and
continue to experiment with various subjects, which are also shown in
I have been working on several Limited Edition Essays in book and folio
forms (see "Under Construction / Editions"). In it, the "Vixen Trilogy"
is of photographs and verse from several years of my work. "Blue" is
another personal essay, and lays bare an emotional arsenal of edgy
images and thoughts, while sitting side by side with romantic imagery,
which are found in "Limelight" and "Finding Manet". All share center stage
in my professional work.
I recently completed "Storm Clouds" - a Limited Edition Triptych of prints
in color, as well as a black and white set of images - each with subtle tinted
hues adding warmth to the Giclee. A Plexiglas Set with all twelve images is
A second site, www.linefivestudio.com, showcases more of my photo
work, emphasizing Notes and Greeting Cards, which are derived from
these and other images - all of which I produce in the studio.
Taking pleasure in presenting the imagery I create on both sites, your
interest and patronage are most welcome.
