Ask any ten year old what they want to be when they grow up and chances are they will say a fireman or police officer.

Not me.  I always knew what I wanted to do.  

I was going to be a photographer! 

 

My education in photography started in high school where I befriended Mr. Frank Limacella.  He was my photo teacher and saw great promise in what I was doing.  So much so he encouraged me to further my education and assisted me in obtaining a scholarship to PRATT institute, where I received my BFA in photography.

 

After graduating, I furthered my education by working in photo studios and labs around NY.

 

And then it happened.  I lost all my work to a flood.

 

All of my portfolios, my negatives, 10 years worth of prints.  Gone!  

So when a friend of mine called me up and invited me to join him in starting a production company in the U.S. Virgin Islands, I jumped at the opportunity to start over as a TV producer.  But after many years of producing shows for our local TV stations,  I couldn’t help but feel like I forgot something.  

I forgot about my love for photography.  The beauty of the still image.  The power of story telling with just a moment in time. 

 

So, I quit my day job and am now embarking on a new journey.  And I love it!!

 

And now I wish to be a part of your journey.  To document your most powerful, loving moments against a backdrop of the beautiful US Virgin islands.
