About Me

I am proud to say after many years of rewarding work, I have reached my goals in photography. I am a PPA Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) and Master Photographer (M.Photog.) located in Teaneck NJ. Please visit Professional Photographers of America at for a wealth of info if you are unfamiliar with CPP and M. Photog. designations.

Ok, a bit about me:

I have a passion for excellent photography and tend to pursue my passions vigorously. I've graduated with Honors from the The Photography Institute (PI) and have successfully completed the Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) exam administered by the Professional Photographers Association as well as the rigorous image standards the judges have set. I am a member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA), Professional Photographers Association of NJ (PPANJ), Wedding and Portrait Photographers Intl (WPPI) among others. I am constantly learning and progressing.

My goal is to create an image that is both artistically inspired and technically excellent that clients will be proud to display forever. I strive to create photos that tell a story, have mood, atmosphere, and emotion.

I have studied exposure, composition and lighting techniques to create dynamic lighting patterns which accentuate (or if appropriate de-emphasize) shape and features. I appreciate the math behind taking correct exposures and enjoy the challenge of analyzing and correctly lighting difficult and unique situations. There is truly a difference between taking a photo and creating one.

I am a big fan of quality light and the ability to control it. When used correctly, directional light creates texture, dimension and form - really making the image come to life. I aim to get it right in the camera rather than rely on corrective editing in post.

I work with the latest versions of Lightroom, Photoshop, Nik software, Topaz, Portraiture, Alien Skin, among many others. I do my own retouching and at times blend layers, add textures or composite images to infuse them with emotional content experienced during shooting while giving them a unique look as well.

I am currently shooting fashion,  glamour,  beauty, dance and yoga images. In addition, I am interested in providing world-class headshots to help promote and secure auditions and jobs for my clientele.

I'm happy to refer the right model to the right Agency if I believe there is a good fit. It would be my pleasure to make the connection and help you attain your goals as well. I am the exclusive photographer for a renown acting studio nearby and again happy to make any introductions if applicable.

Though I take photography seriously, I am probably the most laid back person you'll ever meet! The shoot itself is always comfortable, stress free, laid back and fun - as it should be!

Thank you and I look forward to working together.

Please note, if you work with me on a TF basis you can expect to receive an uploaded summary of images from the shoot  (ie. 75-125, not every raw image on a CD). Basic editing is included as is a watermarked digital file with plenty of resolution to share online or via website for portfolio use. For more extensive editing, printing or commercial use, please inquire for special MM pricing.

As you can see I've worked with dozens of other models from MM over the years. I encourage a call or meet first to discuss details of the shoot and achieve a level of comfort, trust and excitement to work together. As Professionals, we should be expected to conduct ourselves accordingly.
