It's been said that my style of portraiture is
both elegant and timeless. That my lighting
brings out the very best in my subjects.
Your Portrait Session
The portraitist must capture the essence of his subjects.
This is the difference between a portrait, and a snapshot.
In Your Own Space
I specialize in environmental portraits. This means photographing the subject in their favorite environment: at home, work, or maybe even Times Square at night. Each session is unique.
It's All About You
I've photographed royalty and celebrity.
The famous and the infamous. And people
from more traditional walks of life. Every
portrait is a celebration of my client.
It's all about you.
Bookings & Contact
Every new session is just as exciting to me as it is for my clients.
What does a session include?
All of the following:
CONSULTATION: We start with a consultation days/weeks before the actual photography. We will go over all the details, and the planning.
PHOTO SHOOT: Your photo session is not rushed. I allow as much as three hours for a location session. And as much as two hours for a studio session. More time can be arranged, if desired.
POST EDIT SESSION: Next step is editing the images and choosing the best shots. This can be done the same day, or another. The session can also be posted to a private online gallery for you to view at home.
RETOUCHING: Basic high-res digital retouching of your best shot.
FINE ART PRINT: I include a fine art print of your retouched image.
A location session is just $595.
A studio session is $395.
A 50% deposit is required for booking.
Make up artists are available for sessions,
at an additional fee.
What are the prices?
ON LOCATION: I am happy to accommodate a range of location sessions. The fee is based on travel of under 30 minutes each way from my east midtown office.
IN STUDIO: I maintain a wonderful shooting studio in east midtown Manhattan which may be a preferable option for many clients, especially those from out of town.
E-MAIL PREFERRED: As I am frequently in session, email is the preferred
way to reach me. It will be replied to faster than voicemail. If you wish me
to call you back, please include your phone number.
If you are running late to a session, please do call:
My work has hung in galleries, museums, auction houses, been written up and appeared in The New York Times, Art in America, Art Business News Magazine, ArtSpeak Magazine, and been published all over the world in books, magazines, and major ad campaigns.
I originally trained as a fine art painter and printmaker at The National Academy of Fine Art & Design, and The Art Student’s League of New York. I later became a “Master Printmaker” for world famous artists Erté, Moser and McKnight, before producing my own editions.
Oddly, I didn't discover the camera until my mid-twenties. But within a few months I racked up a string of gallery and museum showings, leading to many early reviews. My lifelong passion for photography had begun, and has stayed with me.
I am the author of numerous books and educational DVDs on the graphic arts, literally hundreds of articles for arts magazines, an art education consultant to many schools, and co-produced years of creative seminars with Apple Computer.
I look forward to working with you!
