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; this is how I see my environment.
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 inherently see.

I am an instructor of photography at the Highland Park Art Center in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, where I teach Composition and Abstract Photography.
I am also available for private instruction, at your home or on location. I emphasize the philosophy of how we see our environment and the concept of "keeping it simple," so we concentrate on taking beautiful photographs, and why we use we use the tools we choose; the end result being more enjoyment of the art. Please contact me for additional information and availability.
I am available for a wide range of assignments. My clients over 30+ years have included corporations, universities, and non-profit organizations, as well as individuals who aspire to market a product or service.
My images are also available for purchase.
