I am a commercial and fine-art photographer specializing in portraiture, stories, and observations.
Raised in rural Upstate New York, I received a BS in Visual Design from the University of Oregon in 1984. After assisting for numerous professional photographers, I did corporate and advertising photography in Rochester, New York until 1992. In the early 1990s I was a pioneering Photoshop artist who consulted for Adobe, Iris, Kodak, and Screen, and also taught digital imaging at ICP/NY, VSW, Palm Beach and Maine Workshops. Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s I owned and operated a graphic design studio and boutique advertising agency called Cleanpage, where we worked with Fortune 500 and 4A advertising clients on print, collateral, and early online ventures.
Since 2007 I have returned to doing photography full-time.
I am a full-time commercial and fine-art photographer specializing in portraiture.
In 1983 I became a serious photographer. After graduating from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Visual Design, I spent two years as a freelance photography assistant, before opening my own business in 1986. By 1990 I was traveling to Europe to shoot corporate annual reports. I also began experimenting with the first version of Adobe Photoshop®. My business evolved into digital imaging studio that did retouching and photo-illustration work for advertising agencies. Through the 1990s I helped design and create some of the first corporate websites for Corning, DuPont, Eastman Kodak, and Xerox. In early 2000 I started a boutique advertising agency called Cleanpage. In 2006 I returned to concentrating on my photography.
In the late 1990s I taught workshops at the Center for Creative Imaging in Maine; the International Center for Photography in New York City; the Palm Beach Photo Workshops in Florida; and the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. I have lectured at the George Eastman House and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Also I have done consulting work on digital imaging software interface design for Adobe, DaiNippon Screen, and Eastman Kodak.
While I have not exhibited my work extensively, I did have two pieces accepted for the 2007 Biennial Finger Lakes Exhibit at the University of Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, New York.
I also had one piece in the 2010 Texas National exhibit.
