I began my photography career in New York City after graduating from Pratt Institute. Over the next 30 years, I worked directly for clients such as ABC Television, AT&T, Kodak and Pepsi. While working with major ad agencies as well as the Black Star photo agency between 1976 and 2001, I produced work for clients including Fisher Price, Quaker Oats, Wendy’s, Myers Rum, Eagle Snacks, Gerber, Visa, and The US Army. From 1981 to 1987, I was a principal photographer for Opera News, working with well-known opera personalities such as Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, James Levine, and Kiri Te Kanawa. From the 1980s, I worked on accompanying materials for recording projects with London, Decca Records, Columbia, and Sony. My work has appeared in People Magazine, Vanity Fair, Cigar Aficionado, Cosmopolitan, Self, Woman, Parents, New York, Saturday Review, Connoisseur, and Reader’s Digest. I taught studio photography at the School of Visual Art in New York City from 1990 to 1994. Some of the most fulfilling recognition I've received over the years include the Creative Award from Art Direction Magazine, a DESI award from Graphic Design USA, the Andy Award of Merit from the Advertising Club of New York, and a Legends of Advertising award.
