With Lincoln. Photo by Al Fuchs.

Photography has always been with me. Both my parents were avid hobbyists, documenting every vacation, holiday and family outing. I started taking pictures when I was about ten, with a Kodak Brownie, adding to the family archive. It influenced my decision to pursue an education and career in photojournalism as both photographer and editor and then move to traditional studio and art photography. Leaving the literal confines of photojournalism released me to explore new concepts, whether it’s working with a pinhole camera, traditional film photography or making pictures with an iPhone. Through it I’ve been able to keep my passion for photography.

I have a strong interest in American history, and found that the two often coincide, especially with my particular niche, the American Civil War and collecting vintage photography.

Please contact me if I can help you with a project, or if you are interested in purchasing an image.
