I can't say exactly when I started taking pictures but I can tell you film was in. I enjoyed snapping pictures until the roll of film was done and looking for my next subject was always exciting as I didn't know what I wanted to do but I couldn't wait to see the results. I put down the manual camera and picked up a full automatic Minolta 7xi. With the evolution of technology we know what came next and I couldn't wait to get my hands on a 4.0mp Digital camera. It reenergized me and I was hooked. I kept changing my cameras and following my desire to take better photos for everyone. It was more of hobby at first, taking picture of friends and family on a regular basis. I continued my full-time job of working with retailers to improve their bottom line and grow the business. After many years and the decline in retail stores I decided to pursue my passion of photography full-time. I opened my studio on the Upper East Side and haven't looked back since.
