About Me

Been a photographer forever.

I am gratified by the literally hundreds of models who had faith that us working together would be worthwhile, and who have been happy with the outcome.

For years I shot a lot - an average of about 4 shoots a week.  But since the beginning of 2020 I have cut back a great deal, and now do one shoot a week, on average.  Most of my shoots now are for projects, or are concept- or project-driven.  I rarely shoot just "to shoot."

Want to shoot with me?  Bring me an idea.  Something interesting, or challenging, or fun.  That's what motivates me these days.

You can see much more of my work on instagram: and

I am fully vaccinated against COVID, so able to safely do shoots in studio as well as outdoors.

Far too many to list.  I have shot over 400 fashion shows, had hundreds of paid publications, and hundreds more unpaid.  I have been a staff photographer for a department store chain, a photography trainer for the US government, and have owned and operated a commercial modeling agency in New York City.

I am also author of a book on modeling now available in English, Russian and Chinese, and primary author and owner of the modeling advice site
