I grew up in Warwick, NY where I graduated Warwick High School where I received high Art Awards. I also worked in the Local Drive-in theater for a number of years. I took a couple of Black & White Photography classes at Orange County Comm. Collage. From there I took a Home study course from the New York Institute Of Photography. Half way though the course I realized I wanted to be in a class. I signed up & went to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where I received an Associate Degree in Photography. While in art school I worked with a number of great wedding photographers. I moved back to New York & again worked in the local Drive-In theater & Cinemas. I also hooked up with a very good wedding photographer who I worked with for a number of years. Mean time I also did a number of weddings, including same sex weddings in New Paltz in 2003. Since than business slowed down & I slowly learned digital photography. Trying new things & trying to get my edge back.
