I was lucky enough to get rigorous training in photography at The Art Center College of Design and to work, first as a fashion photographer in Italy, and then as an advertising photographer in Hollywood, for some of the biggest brands in business.  After retiring from a 40-year career I wanted to do something else that wasn't someone else's layout or concept.  I began working as simply as possible, using a small camera with a fixed focal length lens.  I photograph what interests me and print my own work.
