As you may have read in my bio, I come from a science background. I’ve always been into science, even as a little kid. I remember watching the first mercury space flights in the early 60s. (I was 8 years old when Friendship 7 launched.) Now we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first landing on the moon. That was so exciting.
My love of science merges with my love of photography. The images brought back from the Apollo missions are still legendary. The astronauts used Hasselblad cameras…arguably the best camera out there. Did you know that the astronauts left their cameras on the moon to save the weight for the return trip? 12 of these classic cameras are still on the moon.
I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.
