About Me

My interest in photography began when I was a music columnist at the Washington Star newspaper. Writing a weekly interview column for six years, I interviewed over 300 artists including Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, James Brown...in total, a veritable Who's Who of the music world. (A book of my interviews is currently in the works). There were times when there were no photographers available to accompany me on assignments...so I brought along my Nikon. When I left the Star to work in the music industry I stored away my camera gear. Twelve years ago, on a trip to New Mexico, I switched from film to digital photography. In the last twelve years, I have taken more than one million photographs...mainly nature but including architecture, people, cityscapes and much more.

My photographs are on permanent display in U.S. National Parks including Steigerwald (overlooking the Columbia River Gorge) and Modoc (on a trailhead in the Sierra Nevadas). The recently opened Utah Museum of Natural History has one of my photographs on permanent display in its "Life" exhibit.

Six of my photos are on a five year tour of U.S. and Canadian museums in an exhibit called "Imaginate"...under the auspices of the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto (where the same six photos are on permanent display).

In 2011, 2012 and 2013 my photos were selected by the Washington DC Dept. of the Environment as their “Excellence in the Environment/Sustainability” Award Photos.

My photographs have also appeared in publications including:
Parade Magazine
The London Daily Mirror
The Baltimore Sun
Motoring and Leisure (Great Britain)
Why Men Make Bad Pets (book)
The Lotus: Know It and Grow It (book)
Middle School textbooks in Israel
Elementary School textbooks in Malaysia
…and More

I have exhibited at:
Circle Gallery (Annapolis)
Slayton House Gallery (Columbia, MD)
The Netherlands Pavilion (Expo 2009 in Spain)
The North American Museum (Zurich, Switzerland)
My nature photographs have also appeared in exhibitions and on web sites in Norway, Germany, China, Thailand, Brazil, Canada...and more.

I live in Columbia Maryland where several times a year I teach Nature Photography.
