A perfect grand jete. A kiss at a wedding. Fingers strumming a guitar.
Whether making artistic or photojournalistic images, I specialize in capturing fleeting moments, adapting my style to the subject.
Most noted for my performing arts photography and videography, there is literally no subject I won’t tackle.
All images in the gallery are for sale. If you see a photo you would like to buy, email or call me for a customized order.
Have camera, will travel

Ready for your assignment anywhere in the world
Although based in New York City for over 30 years, my work has taken me to four continents and many countries. Nothing makes me happier than dusting off my passport!
Children and pets love me
Whether they sense my inner child, or for some other reason, they respond very well to working with me- producing natural, relaxed results.
I adapt to my surroundings, like a chameleon
Many of my clients have commented on my ability to blend in so seamlessly that I do not intrude on their events- weddings in particular. Consider me a stealth operator!
