With over 28 years experience in the broadcast industry I have participated in the production of many hit television shows. In the early 80’s I started as a field producer for Westinghouse Broadcastings PM /Evening Magazine. I settled in the Boston area in 1981 and worked for the Public Affairs Department and News operations at WBZ-TV and later transitioned to PBS station WGBH where I worked on This Old House, Victory Garden, Mystery Theater and Masterpiece Theater. During the summer of 1986 I moved out to Los Angeles as an employee of a startup cable channel called Movietime, which is now known as E! Entertainment. During my time here in Los Angeles I have worked for many news organizations and daytime / primetime television shows too numerous to mention.
In my 27 years of broadcast experience the shows I have worked on have been the recipients of a number of Emmy Awards, A Gabriel Award, The Ohio State Award and a Golden Microphone for best spot news reporting.
Presently I am working as a freelancer in the Los Angeles/ Phoenix area. During the last election I shot the CNN election year promos, promos for CBS shot in High Definition as well as touring with NBC Network News for the Democratic & Republican National Conventions as well as the Debates. Presently I am working Freelance for Montel and other syndicated television shows
I also have a great love of Photography which I have enjoyed since the age of 13. I first started with a VX1000 totally manual Exacta camera and did all my own developing and printing. Through High School I was Photo Editor of the High School Yearbook even though upperclassmen normally hold the position. I attended the Nikon School of Photography in the 70’s as well as getting my Bachelors Degree at Emerson College. I worked as a Cameraman and freelanced for UPI while in Boston and I have been published in the New York Times. Presently I live in the Greater Phoenix area and have been producing videos but also shoots, commercial, print, fashion, glamour, industrial / techno, landscapes and head shots.
Presently I will shoot models who I feel are worthy of my time. They must show a willingness to learn and excell in the craft. I will provide copies of photos on CD with watermarks.
Models have specific rights as do photographers so each model agrees via release to run picture credits with posting of my photos and I will do the same. In the case of MySpace I will Display the model in my top friends list unless a previous arrangement has been agreed upon.
