I got my first camera at age 12, a 35 mm LOMO, learned to process film and print black and white images. It stayed a hobby for years, winning a competition here, getting a print in a paper there. And then I had kids and rediscovered the reason for photography all over again. Often I KNEW exactly how I wanted the picture to look but did not have the technical skills to actually do it. So it was time to go back to school, this time a photo school.
I studied first in the New York Institute of Photography and then at the Harrington College of Design in Chicago. While doing school assignments I discovered the world of product photography and loved the idea of total control of the set, but my main love was and always will be kids.
