To be quite frank . . . I'm not on this site to build a career or to meet sexy people or make new friends . . . Of course that would be fine and I'd love that too . . . but I'm kinda beyond all that . . . I really just have a passion to shoot new and interesting faces . . . I'm semi-retired and several years ago closed my galleries and studios . . . For the first time in my professional life . . . without my own space . . . my creative needs just aren't being met. . . I've had a long and successful career as a photographer . . . my portrait and fine-art work is in collections worldwide . . . and my story has appeared in countless articles and publications . . . If you're in the NYC area . . . and think you have a good look and some style please be in contact . . . I just want to borrow your face to make a great picture . . . . Let's just start with a quick headshot . . . best wishes . . .
UPDATE 2013 . . . I just relocated to Fort Pierce in Florida ... would love to find some faces there for my camera to borrow . . . . Inspire me . . . .
