I studied Photography
at Empire State College (SUNY)Received a BA with high honors. I have extensive experience with medium format cameras, Rolleiflex and using a 35 mm Nikon camera shooting with black and white film
. My focus is straight classical photography without the use of Photoshop
manipulation. I love to teach the joy and magic of using a manual camera. There are many lessons to learn including patience, composition, and waiting for that what Henri Cartier-Bresson called "The decisive moment."
I also have experience with digital SLR cameras and how to get beyond shooting on automatic. Learn how you can improve your technique and gain confidence.
I can show you the how to of cameras in a fun, hands on way, not sitting at a computer but getting out and making pictures. We can start at the very basics, from loading film (yes, they still make film) to how to select the right aperture and shutter speed.
I am now working on a long time project on the Fountains of Rome, and Sacred and Ancient Places of Southern Italy. I work freelance overseas and here in the States.
I would love to teach those who are interested in beautiful classical photography and I can help you with your digital cameras.

We are all creatures of habit. We go out for a day of photography and we tend to make the kind of pictures day in and day out. Perhaps it is people on the street or beautiful landscapes or buildings and cities. We might have our own style to them, but we
use the same aperture and shutter speed. We stand with our cameras up to our eye and press the shutter.
Try going out and if you are right...
Using the your same old camera day in and day out can put you in a rut. You become so comfortable that you lose that excitement that you had when you first started. Suggestion: borrow another camera one that you have never used before, perhaps a Rangefinder
if you always use a SLR camera, or try using a film camera when you always use a digital camera. You will find it sharpens your senses...
Went out on Monday to make some pictures of Coney Island for a freelance magazine article that I was submitting some of my photographs. Beautiful day, sunny clear not cold, I thought wow a great day for making pictures. The Cyclone and Wonderwheel were looking
I developed the pictures myself after I returned using a changing bag (darkroom technique) and finally they were ready. I...
