About the author

I am a largely self-taught photographer. I spent 10 years doing Black and White Photography and developing my pictures in New York City. Two major projects included following members of a homeless shelter over a 5 year period and street photography at Coney Island. I have taken several courses at the Maine and Santa Fe Photographic Workshops including: On Assignment in Santa Fe with Mark Thiessen and The Magic Moment with Constantine Manos – admission was by portfolio review.
