I'm a former contract photographer with Gamma-Liaison Agency.

Got my first experiences in photography in the very late 1950s from my artist mother and photo-loving dad, who encouraged me to put my work out there. Won my first prize in photography in 1963, for a picture of a brandy snifter with Christmas lights behind it. Never looked back. Gained my professional photo legs starting as a teenager shooting for the Northern Virginia Sun, back in the mid-'60s, when Rolleis, Pentaxes, Leicas, and Nikons (and the occasional Hasse) ranged the landscape. During and after college I was the photo editor for the Longmont, Colorado, Times-Call. At the time, the most demanding piece I shot was the crash of the Wichita State football team plane in the Rockies in 1970. I moved back to Washington, DC, in the early 1970s, and began freelancing for Gamma-Liaison. My format of choice was 35mm, but I also shot with Hasselblads and larger format cameras. For many years, I enjoyed the darkroom wonders of black and white large-format work, considering anything under 16X20 to be too small to be interesting--but, came to love it all. By the late '70s and '80s I was fortunate to have been published in a wide variety of national and international publications, with the help and support of a great many wonderful editors and colleagues.

I took a break from full-time agency shooting in the mid-1980s to be a dad who actually came home at reasonable hours and spent weekends with my children. Now, with the kids grown and on their own, it's time to reenergize the shooting eyes and become immersed in the wonderful world of photography again.

I hope you like my gallery.
