"Sawgrass and Sky"
Photography has been my passion and, at times, my profession, since high school. In 2006 I relocated from Philadelphia, PA to Fort Myers and, shortly thereafter, joined the staff of Naples based Understand Photography as lead instructor. I am a Photographic Society of America Certified Judge, president of the state wide Florida Camera Club Council, an officer of the Fort Myers Camera Club, and co-author of “Florida Photo Spots: Naples & Collier County”. My images have been published in a variety of publications. Most recently, eight of my images were included in the Audubon of the Western Everglades Annual Report. I speak at camera clubs and photo conferences, do private mentoring, lead Understand Photography Workshops to Cuba and the Everglades and other Florida destinations, and create instructional video content for the Understand Photography YouTube channel..
