My Occupation photographer
My Bio Former pro jazz/rock trumpet player, photography became my creative outlet once the playing stopped. My photo passions include glamour & figure photography, as well as street candids. Film is still my medium of choice, using a Contax G2, Leica M6, and various Nikon SLRs.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Working on 2 projects...Ghosts, like me, a book of b&w street candids; Beauty, a collection of images of my favorite models I've worked with over the years.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Don McCullin, to me, the best photojournalist of recent years,after covering countless conflicts and wars the world over, has retired to his cottage in England. He now photographs dark, moody landscapes close to the safe haven of his home.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
The 'Prey' series from John Sanford and Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' series has kept me glued to their pages for the past several years.
