My career has spanned three decades, from my start as a newspaper photojournalist to my work today photographing all types of people for commercial clients such as magazines, colleges, corporations and advertising agencies.

I am best known for my photographs of beautiful women.

My work has been published in magazines like Maxim, Cosmopolitan, Get Fit and Shape to name but a few. I have been called upon to complete assignments for both the New York Times and The Los Angeles Times and I have serviced commercial advertising clients from all over the United States.

In addition to my role as photographer, I have been nationally recognized as an innovator in shaping models portfolios and careers.

Simply put I advise serious models (both new and experienced) about how to market themselves.

I am often often used as a source for television stories as well as newspaper and magazine articles on the subject.
