One of the most neglected subjects for the photographer’s eye is the world of the working person, especially people who work with their hands. You can go to gallery shows over and over again to see pictures of the third world, pictures of homeless people, drug addicts, abused women, and so forth. But somehow the man who does the heavy lifting in our society, who toils daily to make it all work--gets very little photographic attention. They do the most arduous tasks without much complaining.

I have been a photographer since the age of 12. As a youngster, I found my father's dismantled darkroom in the attic of our house, and with his permission set up the enlarger, chemical trays and safelights. A few years later I was the Photography Editor of my high school yearbook.

I have been taking pictures ever since.

My professional career spans 30 years, starting with a studio next to my house and progressing to a 2000 sq. ft. studio equipped with a full kitchen for food photography. For many years, I shot with film, doing mostly product work, for food, high-tech, and medical clients, in the studio and on location. I transitioned to digital photography along the way, and had one of the first commercial-level digital cameras in the Boston area. My engineering education gave me a special ability to master digital technology, and led to my becoming a speaker at professional conferences, and the author of many magazine articles on imaging and digital technology.

I continue to shoot professionally, but am now able to work on personal projects. I gave myself one long-term documentary self-assignment to record the demise of Main Street stores in small towns and cities. Another personal project is photographing the world of manual labor and tradesmen.
