My journey through life has been blessed with many opportunities to see and photograph Humpback Whales. But always from boats. I finally made my dream come true to be in the water, eye-to-eye with majestic whales, the gentle giants of the sea. I swam with mothers, calves, escorts and male whales. The journey was incredible.

In Memory of my dear friend Chuck Dorris
Chuck was a friend from my earliest days in New York City. He was the photographer for my first professional shoot in 1983. We remained great friends and colleagues forevermore. He, more than anyone else, inspired me and told me I could be creative and successful at anything I decided to do.
One of our favorite things to do was food photography, since we were both "foodies". This is from our last culinary adventure together.
Thank you Chuck. You continue to be an inspiration.

Real Estate Photography
Coldwell Banker Real Estate -- Residential & Commercial
With a long and varied background in theater and film production, I developed the ability to finesse a home with staging, lighting and photography & video to make it stand out from the competition and appeal to the potential buyer. I worked with Coldwell Banker New York for exclusive home sales. I do all of my own photo retouching and video editing. I can shoot, retouch, edit and have the finished products ready immediately.
I own all my own shooting gear and am currently working on getting licensed for drone photography and video.
