It's only natural that after a 42 year career as a staff photographer for the Long Island (NY) newspaper, Newsday, I would have a a collection of photos stored on my hard drives and archived to CD's. The great joy of being a news photographer is that it allowed me to work in a number of venues. My work consisted of much more than chasing spot news. While there was certainly ample opportunities for that, I also got to shoot the softer side of news and was able to get many nice images of people, places and things. As you will see from the assortment shown here, I made formal and informal photos of celebrities and common folk. I made photos in public relations and corporate situations. And in the field as well as in the studio, my lenses captured illustrative scenes. Let me show you some of my favorites in order to promote my ability and diversity.
