The Creative Session 

As a Professional Photographer  and educator with over Forty Years experience, I take pride in documenting  my clients moments in front of the camera. From a Family portrait , a corporate or modeling head shot, I believe in delivering quality and customer service. At the Creative Session my focus is on producing images my subject will be proud to exhibit in their home or office and share with others.

Investment Options

I offer a wide variety of  high end products including fine leather albums, hard cover books along with acrylic and canvas images.

 I work on a shoot pet to bring out their unique personality. In many cases these session tend to be longer and require more images to capture.

Personalized Service

I limit the amount of clients and projects I take on each year so I can dedicate my attention to each customers needs.

My Qualifications: Back in the early 60's I became involved with Scuba Diving, which became a life-long passion and eventually a career spanning over 30 years. It wasn't long before I needed to capture and share my adventures with others. Underwater photography was in its infancy, and other than some homemade housings, the only camera truly designed for underwater photography was the Calypso, later to become the Nikonos. It was a compact “O” ring sealed 35mm film camera with several interchangeable lens. An external accessory using conventional flash bulbs supplied lighting. Primitive by today's standards, it provided me with the means to share my adventures. For the longest time my photography was centered in the underwater world. Rarely, did I enter the sea without an underwater camera system or two with me. Over time the images were published in books, magazines, slide presentations and equipment catalogs. In the process they had taken me to unique dive destinations from Long Island to the far away islands of the South Pacific, the Red Sea and the Galápagos, to name a few. With all this traveling, I soon became a dive leader and instructor, coordinating groups of 10 to 40 fellow divers venturing out to explore and photograph one incredible location after the next. My interest in photography continued to grow. About 15 years ago, I transitioned from strictly underwater to a land and studio photographer. Fish became birds, coral became flowers and people remained people -- only drier. I had the opportunity to meet and work with several professionals, allowing me to move into Portrait, Glamour and Fashion  Photography. I branched out into another area of photography that I always loved - Animals and Pets. In fact, I’ve been a board member of a no-kill shelter for the last 20 years. When I was deeply involved with Underwater Photography, I had the opportunity to teach others as an Underwater Photography Instructor. Now, Workshops and Seminars on Portraits, Glamour, Floral, Macro and Pets provide me the opportunity to share my knowledge with inspiring photographers. I have presented workshops and seminars at the B&H Event Space. Co-taught workshops with FJ Westcott  I continue to shoot underwater, however, not as much as in the past. I still get an exhilarating feeling when looking through my viewfinder, and I’m striving to make my best image yet. This is something I know I’ll never achieve, but never stop pursuing. With the software enhancements available today, I believe a great image is 99% produced in camera and made better in postproduction. We never inspire to make a bad photo acceptable with digital trickery. Photography is the pursuit and control of light. Join me in my endeavor by attending one of my many photographic seminars and workshops as we explore and experiment together with ways to bring our images into the digital age and beyond.
