A great shot of me taken by my wife Sandy. I hope you enjoyed the short notes on each of the photographs. I enjoy sharing my work with others. I do not specialize in any particular category. Shooting ducks in the park at the end of my street to water villages in China to people. I enjoy art form because you learn something every time you go out to shoot for profit or personal enjoyment. If you are interested in photography I hope I stimulated the creative side of your brain.

Welcome to my website. My interest in photography began when I worked at Odeon Photo in Paris, France. Access to cameras and lenses, plus a dark room was a once in a life time experience. After returning home to New York I studied art at Manhattanville College. I had an opportunity to study various aspects of art including art history, print making, graphic design, drawing, and painting classes. I never stopped taking photos. I honed my skills as a student assistant managing the college darkroom. In 1973 I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. After college I participated in juried art shows and sold a few photographs and paintings. Since I required shelter and food I began a successful career in business and education.

In 2008 I traded my Olympus point and shoot in for a Canon DSLR starter kit. I was taking great photos with the Olympus but too many other hobbies and distractions kept me from getting serious. Starting with the Canon T1i I began my journey back to serious photography. Countless hours of listening to podcast, watching photographers on You-Tube, and enrolling in workshops helped me take my photography skill set beyond my school days. I kept upgrading my photography kit until today I my kit includes the original Canon T1i, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 17mm-40mm f4, EF 24-70mm f2.8 II, EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS, EF 300mm f4 IS and a Sigma 50mm f1.2. Equipment I dreamed of owning as a student.

Currently, I am doing freelance photography and building my client base. I have done a number of assignments in real estate, architecture, and construction photography. My interest spans a wide range from sports, photojournalism, construction, urban landscapes and urban “wildlife”. My love is nature, wildlife, and landscape photography. I am currently working on several workshops in Utah, Texas, France and Mexico in 2015. My stick photos can be found at iSTOCK a Getty Image company.

I showed my photos at Richardson's Artist Showcase in 2012. My fellow photographer Robert Sherman and I had a two man exhibit at the Artist Showcase in February of 2013. I have several first place ribbons and a Best in Show for 2013 in the Richardson Annual Photo Contest.

I recently retired from the University of Texas at Dallas, Naveen Jindal School of Management where I was Director of Corporate and a senior lecturer for 13 years. I teach business classes internationally for SKema a French Business School in Lille and Paris, France. I also teach for Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I teach a course entitled the Digital Revolution. The course builds on my experience in sales and marketing, including 24 years in management positions in the video game business, and owning a game development company.
