I am a photographer based in Jupiter Florida.  I specialize in abstract and impressionistic landscapes.  Being near the ocean, I shoot horizons, seascapes and waves. I also create what I call “Focus Images” which depicts the essence of a natural object or place.  This essence may be a distinguishable element of an object or an overall feeling that one would derive from being subjected to that particular focus.


Overall, my images focus and interpret an identifying element of a natural object or scene.  My images are in the form of impressions and abstracts.  With my images the viewer has an immediate intrinsic connection. The depiction of these inherent elements provides for and serves as a reminder to us that we are connected to nature through our source and essence.

These photographs have not been manipulated with any type of digital software or by any digital filter system or technique. 



I am self taught and was introduced to photography and film through my Grandmother.  I have had a life-long love of photography and at one point studied to become a photographer.  While serving as a “photographer’s helper” to various commercial photographers in New York City and Fort Lauderdale, I realized that commercial photography as a profession was very restrictive and that the “client’s” ideas would always win. 

I then embarked on a successful career in the real estate business.  I now devote most of my time to photography, taking the kinds of images that I feel inspired to take.  At this point in my life, I have finally found in photography what I wanted to find so many years ago - that being the freedom to express myself in any way that inspires me and not just to the wishes of some “client”.
