I have an extensive background in lighting and camera for the motion picture (15 years) and hope to transfer that knowledge to my photographs.
Photography (and film/video) is art for me. I treat it as such. I don't try to use the same techniques or achieve the same look as everyone else. I shoot what I see, I see what I like. I have my own way of working, I have my own style of lighting, I have my own techniques with my camera. I am constantly learning, and hopefully teaching.
Not everyone is going to like my work. I am past that hang-up. I have confidence in my work, and even if I achieve no further success in my lifetime, I already consider myself having had a successful career in the visual arts. That makes every new endeavor a lot easier to deal with. I do not want any stress on set. I want only a fun atmosphere. I want comfort. I want enthusiasm. 'No attitudes' (or attitudes left at the door) is pretty much essential. If these things are not in place then I turn down the work. It is simply not that important if it is going to go against my artistic ideals.
I work with mostly continuous light fixtures. I am starting to experiment with strobe lighting. I am starting to experiment with Photoshop manipulations of image (not necessarily the standard retouching techniques of smoothing and sexying).
My style is natural and un-retouched for the most part. I love the look of candid poses and caught by accident shots.
I am based in NYC, upstate NY, and Los Angeles.
