I am a photographer of people. Whether a personal or corporate headshot, a family portrait, a custom portrait, a commercial modeling shot or 'look book', a fine art composite image, business development images, artistic nudes or figure studies, the vast majority of my work involves photos of people.
Please contact me to discuss any 'people project' that you have in mind. I'll give you a competitive quote and work with you until you are completely satisfied.

I just had two photos accepted to a very large, international exhibit at 'Spazio Tolomeo', in Milan, Italy. The show is located in the art and fashion center of Milan and will open in mid-January, 2023. After the show, I will have a rotating presentation of 6 photos on an Italian website for one year. Two of the photos included are shown below:

I recently had the honor of shooting the cover photo for a new release by Grammy-Winning, Parma Recording. Above is a photo of my client, world renowned violinist, composer, conductor, and soloist, Avner Finberg, DMA. Avner is the winner of multiple international awards and his new album, 'Four Seasons of Isolation', is a joy to anyone with a love of challenging, contemporary classical music. The release date was November 11, 2022.

A Portion of a Review by 'Lens Culture Magazine'
.....Speaking about your technique, I would say that it is quite meticulous and detail oriented. Through an array of visual ingredients, each frame manifests the noise and overstimulation of the cityscape, with which the nameless person tries to get a grip on themselves. There is a melancholic feeling that emerges from the pictures, and the way you see the people around you. The glass is a barrier between you and the subject, that puts the viewer into a clearly observational mode. I see no defects in the pictures. The monochrome format provides the necessary abstraction to elevate the approach from simply representational to poetic. The snapshot aesthetic if you will, gives a sense of spontaneity in the work as the subject appears to be unprepared, therefore realistic, to be captured. This beautiful blend of poetry and spontaneity creates the fascination of the work.
In conclusion, I am delighted to tell you that your approach has a strong concept and aesthetic, solid execution of craft, and originality of vision. You are not just curious about street photography; you love it. At the same time, your approach expresses artistic independence, and that's a lofty goal in and of itself.
