Artist Statement

Still life to real life, I get to tell stories every day. Whether in the studio or on location, the best images capture the moment a story begins to unfold.

I knew I wanted to be a photographer from the day I first shot and developed a roll of black and white film. Looking at those images, I saw the world beautifully abstracted; in every frame, a fresh story revealed. Today I shoot digitally and my darkroom is a computer, but I’m still the same awestruck kid seeing stories emerge around me.

I photograph every day, either for myself or on assignment for corporations, institutions, ad agencies and editorial clients. I thrive on the challenges and breadth of experience. Recently completed projects include a magazine series on artisanal cocktails, environmental portraits of lively octogenarians at a senior living facility, and personal snapshots of Japanese urban life.

Images tell stories and stories are what I photograph.

Based in Western New York, photographing the stories of people, places and products everywhere.
