Photography is something I’ve always been in love with.  As a child of five on holiday I always wanted to be in charge of my father’s camera, crying out, “I’m the photographer!  I’m the photographer!”  The camera was a Nikomat he was very proud of, and he insisted I wear the strap around my neck.  It was heavy for me, and the thin strap cut into my neck.  The camera still sits on my shelf.  It's still heavy.

It’s magical to have, as tools of my trade, light, time, color, memories...

Photography is a meditation, forcing me to slow down and look more carefully, and a passepartout that opens a connection with people.  Through my camera I’ve seen many things.

My clients include Amato Architecture, LMB Interiors, The Bark Magazine, SF Real Estate Solutions, Julie Stuart, The Times, The Fader Magazine, Levi Strauss (London), Boden, Grazia (London and Milan), The Telegraph, National Geographic, Sony, and Biba.

Located in the East Bay, I specialize in working with individuals and  local businesses in and around San Francisco, including Berkeley, Oakland, El Cerrito/Richmond, Lamorinda, Walnut Creek, Albany, San Rafael, Novato, Mill Valley, Corte Madera, Larkspur, and Sausalito.
