My interest in photography started when my sister showed me how she developed film and prints while working for the High School newspaper. I was hooked and immediately started shooting and developing myself.  About five years later I moved from New York to Ft Lauderdale to attend the Art Institute where I graduated in 1981.

Although I headed down another path that has served me well over the years,  I continued to shoot avidly for my own enjoyment and continued honing my skills.  A few years ago my employer was in need of a massive catalog website and I found myself introduced to the world of digital photography (I had been shooting film until this time) and Photoshop.  I was amazed at how you could take a photo and do things to it that you could never do in a darkroom.  The website is a work in progress but if you want to see what we’ve done so far www.glastop.com .  Many of the product shots and some of the interiors were shot by me.  Another website that features some of my work is http://www.hwdsound.com I did the illustrative photos at the top of each page. 

My Photoshop skills are at the intermediate / advanced level.  I post process the best takes and remove blemishes soften facial lines clean up stray hair, what this means for you is that your photos will look great. This website was designed and built by me as well so I have a basic understanding of web design and image optimization, so if you need to update your website or need a new photo for Facebook I have it covered.

Today I am offering my services as a freelance location photographer and currently am available to shoot on Thursday, Saturday and Sundays. My focus is on: people (environmental portraits, kids at play, model comps and head shots), sports (baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, diving, tennis, ect.) and product (small product, e-bay, catalogue, furniture, ect.) photography. If you’re looking for creative, high quality photographs contact me today to schedule a session. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
