I am a photographer from Northampton, a town in rural Western Mass. I work here, and am easily able to complete photo assignments in New York, NJ, CT and Boston.

I understand the emotional importance of private/family events. I photograph a maximum of 10 weddings per year. Wedding reviews can be found all over the web, and especially here.

I work for a lot of institutions in education, healthcare and the arts.

I use my traditional film cameras for all of my personal work in portraits and landscapes/cityscapes.

I am able to create in both highly-stylized photo settings and also capture the most fleeting, candid moments.
