Welcome to what I hope will be an enjoyable visit.  This site is here for your entertainment.             

     I was introduced to photography some forty years ago.  I didn’t know much about what I was doing at first but read the usual photo magazines and did a good job of recording family events.

   About the same time, I discovered an oasis called Jamaica Bay Wildlife refuge.  It reminded me of  the areas I visited in southern New Jersey as a youngster.  It wasn’t long before I was taking the camera with me on nature walks recording some of the beautiful scenes and creatures I witnessed in the preserve. 

   After moving to Long Island I joined a camera club and began to take photography seriously.  Club photography helped me develop an individual style.  I was able to join my love of nature and of image making.  I was twice blessed.  Over time, I’ve expanded into other areas but my favorite is recording forms of nature.

I'm shooting film.  I haven't moved to digital like most of the crowd.  Slides are my preference, shooting a variety of films.  I'm also having fun with Black and White positives.  Cameras and lenses are all Konica. 

I have received a number of awards for my work.  My images have been seen in local galleries and shows.  My lighthouse work was recently published in Tom Beard's book "Lighthouses of America."

Enjoy the photos here but please do not use them without permission.   The images are proprietary and protected under the copyright regulations.

On a professional level, I am a PMP certified  project manager proficient in retail banking projects/applications.  I am semi-retired.  If you have an interest in reviewing my accomplishments and skills, please see my resume.
