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 on-line photography gallery. 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 have a 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.

I showed my photos at the 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 am a member of the Photography Society of American and the Dallas Camera Club where I compete well against a strong group of photographers in monthly competitions. I have several first place ribbons and a Best in Show for 2013 in the Richardson Annual Photo Contest. In the last half of 2013 I have been entering larger photo contest testing my skills against a larger number of Photographers. Here is a story written about me that appeared in the UT Dallas News Center.

I do not specialize in one particular area of photography that would be to limiting. My interest spans a wide range from sports, photojournalism, construction, urban landscapes and urban “wildlife”. My love is nature, wildlife, and landscape photography. My travel schedule allows me to travel to many interesting and exotic places.

I do have a day job as a senior lecturer and director of corporate programs at the University of Texas at Dallas, Naveen Jindal School of Management. I am responsible for program management of several key UT Dallas executive education corporate accounts. I also teach business classes in Paris, France. My background is in sales and marketing including 24 years in management positions in the video game business.
