About Me


My presence here is part of my ongoing quest to discover and create beauty. I am here to grow my body of work in my specialty areas: Beauty, Fashion, Glamour, Portraits and Fine Art.

I am interested in meeting models, makeup artists, hair and fashion stylists, and other talented individuals, for shoots in my New York Metro studio, on location, as well as for my educational seminars and workshops. A recent live-action program was titled "Glamour Photography and Fine Art Nudes."

I am a seasoned artist, photographer and author, and have worked with many Hollywood celebrities. I am an adjunct faculty member at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York City's internationally recognized college for design, fashion, art, communications and business.

My photographs and paintings have been widely published. As an exhibiting artist, I am always working on new imagery for future art shows and coffee table books.

I have helped thousands of models with their portfolio development. Many images originally created for fashion or glamour go on to become part of a fine art collection.

Both commissioned and trade shoots are available. I deliver impeccable, fully retouched images.

All the best!
