My Bio

I've been an avid photographer since my college days in the 60s and 70s though the interest back then was mostly architectural. Among (many)other things, I've worked as a photojournalist through which I developed an appreciation and skill for capturing "a moment" which tells a story.


My specific interest in male figurative work became serious in the early 90s when I owned a gallery in Key West called "Bodyscapes", one of the few galleries in the country at the time which would feature fine art imagery of the male form. Through the gallery I met and represented some of the finest photographers of the genre in the United States. And, subsequently, thought "if they can do it, why can't I?"


Twenty years later, practicing my craft, I'm finally arriving at a style that's uniquely my own, gaining some recognition with several one-person shows and building a new career as a photographer. Though what goes around comes around...most of the paid work is as an architectural and interiors photographer. My passion, however, is the male figurative work. It's my intent that can become part of the new career as well.


Current Residence: Aiken, SC

After lots of consultation with friends, potential buyers and some devil's advocates, we've chosen a title for the book. The next major job before the Kickstarter launch will be to select the cover images. Think maybe a poll here may be helpful with that? And the winner is "Southern Exposure: Men of Key West"

The Kickstarter launch for the book of male nudes shot in Key West is now scheduled for May 2016. After lots of tests on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter, it became obvious that limiting the book to interior shots wasn't the best idea. Key West, though it has beautiful estates and gardens, is all about the tropics, water and islands. So the focus of the book has shifted from simply interior shots to those that play on the island's great settings. Currently I'm working on creating a title and selecting the cover photos. Then there's the small task of selecting 200 or so of the best photos from a collection of around 60,000. The book wil
