I am a self taught photographer with the desire to capture images in a way to allow the viewer to feel like they are actually behind the camera.

I was a athlete who realized the pros were not going to happen so I decided to photograph what I knew best, Sports. I started working for a local paper in 1995 were I won press photo of the year and best sports photo for a weekly. I then started putting together a portfolio to apply for a job with a daily and in 1999 I was freelancing for Newsday. I met many great people and learned many great tips and tricks that allowed me to go on to shoot the pros including the NFL, NHL, and MLB.

Then came the digital age and all day rates went down as to were it was not worth shooting the pros so I said what if I started shooting young athletes that played for one reason and one reason only, the love of the game. I started shooting pee wee football and Little League baseball. It was amazing the response I received from parents. I then formed and was a full time youth sports photographer revolutionizing the way parents were able to see their young athletes in action the same way the Pros were photographed. From the sweat pouring off their face to the chest pounding in Victory. It was a great feeling.

Then in 2001 a tragedy hit America on 9/11 that changed a lot for me. I am from NY so it hit me pretty hard especially visiting the towers all my life. So in 2003 when the tribute lights were lit I had to photograph them. I went to the city with thousands of others and I spent about 5 hours photographing my very first Nightscape. I was hooked so much that I had found my nitch and a new love for photography. I then created Nightscapes to share all the amazing sites at night. While most people are sleeping I am out shooting in total darkness.

Over the years, after expanding my horizons beyond the sidelines for the first time, I travel for sports gigs but always make time for a night out on the town to capture the Nights Beauty. With so many cities covered and still so many more to go I am just at the beginning of my journey. Included in this journey I plan on teaching others my techniques and knowledge of shooting at night.

If you enjoy my photos and would like to add a poster or canvas to your wall and help me keep doing what I am doing please don't hesitate to purchase one of my photos. If you do not see a photo you like or their is something you are looking for, or you are interested in learning how to take Nightscapes please contact me and I will make sure to make it happen.
Coming soon to a city near you Nightscapes photo safaris.
