I've been a professional photographer and photojournalist for over thirty years shooting for such publications as Time, Newsweek, Forbes and Business Week. I've photographed assignments for newspapers such as the New York Times, New York Newsday and the Los Angeles Times.

I've been associated with photography agencies including Black Star and Gamma Liaison in New York. I've lectured on photography at numerous locations including NYU and the International Center of Photography in New York, and at UCLA and Brooks Institute of Photography in California.

About 99% of my black and white photos were taken with Leica rangefinder cameras. A few with Leica M3's and M4's, but the bulk were taken with Leica M6's, usually with a 35mm Summicron lens. The more recent shots in Spain were made with digital Leica M9's and the 35mm Summicron Asph and a 28mm Elmarit Asph lens. I use a Leica 50mm Summicron and a 90mm Summarit from time to time.

I shoot Tri-X film with my M6′s.
