I've been interested in photography since college. I was actually forced to take it up in a serious way when I was a teacher at Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers. It was there that Sr. Iannone, a professional photographer, conned me into taking over the yearbook and photography club. In return, she taught me everything she knew about manual photography, layout and design, and darkroom. It was the best favor anyone ever did for me. When I came to Molloy, my photographic skills came in quite handy overseas as Director of International Education and as Director of the Whitman Creative Studies Program.
During my years at Molloy College, I developed several experiential programs for students, including Service-Learning, International Education, The First Year Experience, The Whitman Creative Studies Program, and Gotham: The New York Experience. In order to provide an historic record of these programs, I created a Molloy Flickr Site where I fanatically posted every program photo I took since about 2007. I think many students appreciate knowing that these photos will always be available for them to look at on-line. And I greatly appreciate having hundreds of subjects each year to help me develop my portrait photography.
I’ve been interested in photography since I was about 20 years old, when I got my first manual Pentax K-1000. I’ve always been focused mainly on portrait photography, but in recent years I’ve begun to broaden my focus to include nature, urban, and architectural photography. Learning Photoshop has enabled me to experiment with freakier compositions than would otherwise have been possible with a camera alone, and this has certainly been a creatively liberating influence on my work.
Feel free to check out my work, if you're interested. I've arranged my photos on this site according to the main topics upon which I have been focused:
