I'm a portrait photographer based in New York City, shooting in my Tribeca studio and on location. Subjects include American and international independent filmmakers, Oscar- and other award-winning actors, classical and new music musicians and composers, dancers, artists, curators, architects, writers, progressive political activists and economists. CEOs and politicians too. And children sometimes. I love to hear everyone’s stories. We often spend a lot of time laughing. And when time permits, eating.
My work with filmmakers and actors was featured on the Sundance Channel. That work and other projects will be included in a new online interview series called “This Creative Life.”
I have exhibited portraits of actors and directors at George Eastman House, Rochester, NY, and had an image included in the “Isabelle Huppert: Portrait of a Woman" show at P.S. 1 (a MoMA satellite in Long Island City, NY). I have also shown at White Columns (New York) and The Berlin Film Festival.
As part of the 44th New York Film Festival, I exhibited 72 portraits of directors and actors at the Walter Reade Gallery at Lincoln Center. Kodak generously sponsored the show, making 72 16"x20" digital C prints.
I print on an Epson 7900 and although I've had the machine for a few years, I'm still amazed by its capabilities. I was a very good b&w printer, so I’m surprised that I don’t miss the darkroom.
I have a B.A. in literature and creative writing from the State University of New York at Binghamton. My two Labrador retrievers are named Leo and Ryder (aka PiePie).
