DESIGNING THROUGH A LENS

As a life-long designer and art director, I intuitively view subject matter in two dimensions. "Reducing" matter into shapes, textures, colors, and eliminating all forms of distractions.

Regardless of content: An iconic orange dune of Namibia, a road's subtle curve, a beautifully-designed building; the great majority of my images reflect how I interpret what I intuitively see.

When I photograph people, I strive to connect with them as they appear in life, rather than static poses. A little movement, a natural facial expression, interacting with others; this defines my “life” photography.

INSTRUCTION

I am an instructor of photography at the Highland Park Art Center in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, where I teach Composition; Camera Basics; and Abstract Photography, where we discover new ways of looking at form, color, and texture.

I am also available for private instruction. I emphasize how we view our environment, creative viewing, and why and how we intuitively use the tools we choose; the end result being more gratification of the art.

Please contact me for additional information and availability.

I am available for a wide breadth of assignments. My clients have included individuals, companies, universities, and non-profit organizations. Additional samples of my work are available upon request.
