I apprenticed with some top NYC photographers in the late 1980s, shot for myself into the 90s and rode the desktop publishing wave into graphic design and creative production. So, 30 years later, I'm just circling back to photography. An early comic and sci-fi fan, I appreciate this cosplay community that I've watched develop over the past decade. Cosplay is the perfect subject matter for my "mixed light" style of shooting. It's nice to shoot for the simple pleasure of creating a beautiful image again.
