About Me

Photo by DLMI am Tampa Bay based photographer/writer. I photograph a wide range of subjects that excite me on an emotional plane. Nature, particularly birds, landscapes, cats, abstracts, street photography and geometric patterns are subjects that interest me. I do not rule out any subject matter if it arouses me on a visual level. Without an inner rush that draws an enthusiastic emotion, a feeling of excitement and discovery, the photograph will be meaningless and contrived. My goal is to have my photographs express how I see life, creating windows for people to look through and find meaning.

I write about film and have published an e-book on film noir (Film Noir at Twenty Four Frames Per Second) available at Amazon. I am also a contributor to the new e-book The Take2 Guide to Steven Spielberg and the soon to be published Take2 Guide to Woody Allen.

Originally from New York City, I developed a serious interest in photography while serving in Vietnam where I purchased my first 35mm camera (Pentax). After returning to civilian life, and while working a 9 to 5 job, I took classes in the evening at the New York Institute of Photography. On weekends I roamed the streets of New York photographing the city. At night, I would set up a dark room, to develop black and white prints, working out of the kitchen of my apartment.

My work has been exhibited at Ruth Eckerd Hall (Juried), Honeymoon Island Nature Center, Dazzio Art Experience Gallery, Safety Harbor Historical Museum, Octagon Arts Center and local libraries.

I am a member of the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA) and The Photographic Art Society of Florida.
