About Me

For more than 18 years, I’ve provided photography services for local real estate agents, ad agencies, and companies such as Wyndham, Marriott, Pulte Group and Sotheby’s International. I’m driven by the art and science of photography, and my pursuit of architectural photography has contributed to my work’s level of refinement and success with customers. My goal is to provide a seamless way to showcase properties, ensure successful sales and recognition, and elevate the real estate market.

I studied photography, graphic art and art history at the School of Visual Arts, SUNY and other NY institutions, and by interning with newspapers and magazines in New England and The Carolinas. My work has been published in magazines, journals and other media. I also worked in the hotel business in the Myrtle Beach area for over 20 years, while providing photography for Hilton and other companies. I’m a huge fan of aerial photography and a commercially certificated drone operator with 5+ years’ experience. This has turned out to be invaluable for real estate advertising.  

Born and raised in New York City and Westchester County, I’ve lived in the Myrtle Beach locality of South Carolina since the 1990s, shortly after my family’s move to the area. My dad was a senior real estate appraiser for NY State and avid golfer (he still is), and Myrtle Beach was a long-visited mecca of the sport and obvious choice for retirement. The natural beauty of Myrtle Beach and its surrounding townships, and the unique and down-to-earth nature of its people, has kept me spellbound to the Grand Strand ever since

Real estate clients deserve attention and professionalism, and my focus is on providing this and making your property and image stand out above others. Every situation can present an opportunity for capturing a signature image – or creating a masterpiece. 

I look forward to working with you!
