Abbreviated Bio & Artist's Statement
I've been a media specialist in the movie and Commercial/Art photography arenas for over four decades. I am also a Writer, Producer, Director and Director of Photography, Editor, Graphic Artist and Web Designer.
My life long passion has been art photography. My personal thrust is to produce images that are provocotive, intelligent, and positive, and to explore the human condition. I challenge myself to create compositions that contain a dynamic tension, forcing the viewer's emotional involvement. Much of my work over the decades has been focused on the human face, our most astounding road map of complex emotions.
I spent the 70ties in San Francisco and the next thirty years in Hollywood running my own companies, contracting to major studios and corporations for commercial and promotional assignments. My work is internationally broadcast, published, exhibited and collected. Please visit my Lucid Media for sample clips and more detailed filmmaking biography.
I've had a chance to do it all using cutting edge technology while garnering more than thirty international film festival awards along the way. Best of all, I'm still making images and still love it. The transition into film and video allowed me to create moving and often thought provoking portraiture of over a hundred major celebrities and stars.
Assignments have included, magazine editorials, documentary photojournalism, websites, fashion ads, headshots and many other uses including the internet. See my Web Design page.
I currently live in Southwest Virginia. I am seeking challenging assignments in all arenas. Please contact me for your next big adventure.
