I'm a NYC based professional photographer specializing in portrait, lifestyle and landscape photography. My style is influenced from the great classic photographers Arnold Newman, William Eggleston, Robert Frank and some amazing contemporary photographers such as Craig Cutler, Sam Jones, and Danny Clinch to name a few. Also, the many photos my father took of our family when I was a kid are a big influence on my work. The color and texture of those old photos just felt right and made a huge impression on me. These photos are still a big inspiration on my style today.
I graduated from School Of Visual Arts in NYC with a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. From there I worked for a handful of very talented commercial photographers such as Kenneth Willardt, Marc Joseph Berg and Robert Tardio. I learned a lot about photography and life from these people. I took what I learned from my mentors and came up with my own style and have had the pleasure to shoot advertising and editorial jobs for such clients as; The Washington Post, Boost Mobil, United Technologies, FUBU-NBA apparel, Major League Soccer, PNC Bank and GoDaddy.com among others.
I'm a husband and a father of two awesome young boys which I'm constantly photographing of course.
"If the photographer is interested in the people in front of his lens, and if he is compassionate, it’s already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer."
