Growing up in New York City I've encountered a lot of wow. So many things to move a guy to utter that simple, powerful word.... “wow.” I was fortunate to have a strong upbringing with lots of love, and a hefty exposure to the arts. At 8 years old I was given a subscription to National Geographic. The images took the word wow global for me. I was in awe. Later, for my 10th birthday I was given a camera and the rest.... well, I wont be cliche and say it's history, but I will tell you this. From that very first day till now, I strive to create wow, to leave behind images that can move someone to utter that wonderful word. I think about it with every single breath that I hold as I press the shutter button, my years of experience and of living in awe of "wow" have brought me to that very instant I release the shutter, its synchronicity. I hope you deem it "wow!"

Each image you see here is the product of intention. The camera was raised to my eye with the intention of the finalized print. Images that merely live on hard drives and computer screens are like caged birds. For an image to truly live it needs to take a physical form, be displayed, talked about and endured. The images here have all been painstakingly and lovingly processed by hand, using the same thought process and even often times even the same techniques as when I used to print in a darkroom. The philosophies are still the same. The amount of hours lessened. While images no longer take me several days from film to final print, they still take considerate amounts of time. In fact most if not all of the images you see here, were worked on, left to come back to with fresh eyes.. worked on again, and in some cases the process repeated, until I was certain what I saw before me was something I could live with. When you own one of my images you own my emotions, my connections to the world in which we live.. and my humblest offering of sharing in the best way I know how. These images mean nothing without people to see them, take them home, love them and share them. I hope you will do just that. If you have any special requests, please do feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you.
