I try to tell a story through images and words that bring back the human interest and overlaying rich textures of a different country’s lifestyle.
To capture a moment in time as I float down a river, walk a mud-street village, hike a sand dune at sunrise, stroll up a jungle trail or cruise through the workshop of a regional craftsman, is a pleasure and a dream.
It is a joy of mine to share these images with children and young students in hopes that my images will inspire a few of them to travel and explore other cultures of the world with an open mind.
I am a professional photojournalist. My traveling sidekick is Mr. SLR Nikon and his gear bag full of camera goodies. As a “realist photographer”, I do not manipulate my images. I perform my minor post production in Lightroom. I do not have Photoshop on my Mac.
I am now retired and live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with my wife.
During my career I owned a large advertising/marketing/public relations agency in Houston, Texas. I launched my 25-year professional career as the agency’s primary writer and Creative Director.
Upon retirement, in 1989, I moved full-time to the island of Martha’s Vineyard before moving to Mexico in 2001.
I was born in upstate New York in the small town of Auburn on the Finger Lakes and attended The Northwood Preparatory School in Lake Placid, New York.
My degree from the University of Florida is in Advertising and Marketing..
The inspiration for my love of photography came from my father, who was an amateur photographer. As a young child, I spent many hours in his darkroom helping him hang black & white prints with clothes pins.
