Born in Caracas, Venezuela, into an artistic family, I became interested in photography at an early age. Inspired by my maternal grandfather who was cinematographer from Budapest, I followed my dreams and studied photography at Houston Community College from 1990-1992.
An Arizona resident since 1992, I was drawn to the southwest by its rugged diversity and many challenges for the professional photographer. While I began my photographic career with Arizona landscapes, sunsets, and lightning shots, it was a chance side trip through the Barrio and Presidio Districts of Tucson that led me to my first passion – that of photographing colorful doors and windows of the historic districts of the southwestern U.S., particularly Tucson, and then to our southern neighbor Mexico. Over the years, I have received national recognition for my images of the El Presidio and Barrio Districts of Tucson.
At the ripe “old” age of 40-something, I finally had the opportunity to venture abroad to the shores of the UK (Ireland), and on to Mainland Europe, where I discovered a whole “new” (old) world of doors, windows, alleyways, seascapes, etc. You will see from the website, that Italy has a hold on me!
As most of us, I too have a long bucket list of where I would like to go, that’s for sure! However, it is always helpful to know what customers are looking for. Therefore, I invite you to email me and let me know where you would like me to go…or if you need a photographer to accompany you on your trip or on your cruise. I have been asked and remain open to being anyone’s or any group’s personal photographer, anywhere!
