Thanks for taking the time to look at my newest website. I've been snapping photos since I was five years old, and began working in a darkroom by the time I was seven. My real passion for photography started a few years later, when I began offering my services around our neighborhood photographing children, families and pets.


At the same time as having my own "One Man Photo Exhibit" at the Berkshire Museum, for my thirteenth birthday I was given a gift from Joel Librizzi, of The Berkshire Eagle - an offer to tag along with him for a week doing photo shoots and printing in his darkroom - what a thrill for a young teenager! I was able to photograph Johnny Cash at Bousquet Ski Area, shoot sporting events, have my own full pages in the Eagle's fashion supplement and Berkshires Week, while working side-by-side with one of Berkshire County's finest photographers (my personal mentor and close friend). That's when I knew what my future career would be!


Though my specialty is Weddings and Portraiture, for 40 years I've photographed stage, fashion, legal and products as well. After browsing through my portfolios, click the contact link to get in touch - I'll respond promptly by phone or email, and am available to meet at your convenience to discuss your needs and plans.

I photograph weddings, children, families, pets, birthday parties, anniversaries, all special events, offer organization fundraisers (school, church/synagogue, business...) and feature house parties that you sponsor and can get your own session and prints for free.
