Professional Photographic History & Experience
My life and career since 1980 have always involved photography. My passion for photography started while studying fine art at Kent State University in Ohio. After graduating, I studied photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. During my senior year at SVA, my photographs were seen by Martin Pedersen, art director/designer with Jonson Pedersen Hinrichs & Shakery, Inc. (a design firm in NYC). We collaborated on a corporate/institutional booklet for Citicorp, their client. The Citicorp booklet won the most coveted national and international awards in the design industry, and that launched my photographic career. I established myself with clients who wanted strong graphic abstract photography to portray their products in artistic and unprecedented ways.
