I am a freelance photographer living in Denver Colorado I began my career in 1982 in New York City, after two years of being a first assistant photographer to Annie Leibovitz and Mary Ellen Mark. In New York City, I worked on a assignments for editorial publications such as Forbes, Businessweek, Esquire, Us, Elle and many others.

In 1989 my first book of photographs was published " Fathers and Sons" Abbeville Press and sold over 25 thousand copies. Since then I have published 3 photography books and my fifth book " 50 Lighting Setups for the Portrait Photographer Volume 2" will come out in June of 2012.
I have also taught photography workshops for the Rocky Mountain School of Photography and lectured at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania. I currently live in Denver Colorado, where I continue to take on photo assignments, sell stock photographs and think of new photo projects to pursue.
