I studied graphic design, computer graphics and animation at UCLA in the mid 80's.I freelanced in Los Angeles for several years after school. I became proficient using AutoCad which I used to create 3D models of architecture from 2D plans and elevations. I worked for several years with an architectural illustrator where I would develop 3D models of structures and the illustrator would airbrush the plotted perspective views. This provided me with invaluable experience and the practical application of perspectives and how it applies to architectural photography. In the mid 90's I moved to Chicago where I worked in presentation graphics and design, many of my clients were architects, city planners and urban design consultants. Photography has been a big part of my work for the last 25+ years and the future of architectural photography looks to be very promising. I am very excited to be working in this field of endeavor it incorporates some of my favorite things, art, creativity, innovation and the applied technology of the work.
