I fell into photography purely by accident! Frustrated by a lack of direction, my father and sister, who lived in Syracuse at the time, suggested I go out there and take some art classes.As I mentioned photography was an afterthought, a throw-in. I was hooked, went onto a few more photographic programs, worked in the Albany, N.Y. area for twenty years, where I worked my way up the ladder in the multi-image, special effects visual arts business, mostly producing multi projector presentations. All the while I was photographing mostly in upstate New York and the Adirondacks. Although somewhat not tremendously outgoing, I developed a strong passion for taking pictures of people, in their surroundings, whether it be in landscapes, in work environments, home, etc. Coincidently I became very much the outdoor landscape enthusiast. Someone once said my ability or tendency to juxtapose people, places, and things was my knack.
