I have been taking pictures since I was a child. My father was an avid photographer and he encouraged me by giving me a camera to carry along on our family vacations. I have always been captivated by lighting. I have studied and practised architectural lighting, theatrical lighting, film lighting and photographic lighting. I enjoy photographing people, places and things. My studio is in Reseda, California. Nothing really fancy, just a converted garage, but it does the job.
