I have worked in the field of photography education as a teacher for the last 22 years and as a photographer and park ranger for the National Park Service at Morristown National Historical Park, NJ, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area NJ, Shenandoah National Park, VA, and Yosemite National Park, CA.
I teach private one-on-one photography courses in Essex, Morris, Somerset, Sussex and Warren Counties in New Jersey and the Poconos, PA. All courses are customized to your exact needs, subject interests, availability, learning speed and the equipment you use.
Over the years, I have found private one-on-one instruction the most effective way to learn photography. I work as a photographer and teacher every day and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. In addition to the courses listed on my opening page, I offer mentoring programs in outdoor photography and professional critique and image review sessions.
I hope you enjoy your visit to this site.

Wildlife photography is one of my passions. I have been photographing wildlife for over 30 years and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge during this time. In college, I took a lot of science courses including botany, biology, ecology, zoology and natural resource management. This training, along with my work with the national park service helps me a lot in my wildlife photography. The best advice I can give someone to improve their natural history photography is to be a good naturalist. The more you know about your subjects the better photographs you will make.
Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR (my favorite lens).
The Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 VR produces images with a degree of sharpness, color and contrast that exceed the expectations of all photographers who use it.
This is one lens I donít have to worry about which aperture setting is the sharpest. Itís sharp all the way from f2.8 to f16 . My choice of aperture is totally dependent on the depth of field I need for creative effects. At F2.8, the 70-200mm VR gives a very pleasing out of focus area or ďbokehĒ (the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field).
The Nikon 70 to 200mm 2.8 AFS ED VR is worth every penny I paid for it. I highly recommend it.
PS. I just recently purchased the Canon 70-200 F2.8 L IS lens from B&H Photo and it's just as good as the Nikon version.
I purchase all my equipment by mail order from B&H Photo in NYC. I have been a happy customer of theirs for 25 years. Their customer service and return policy is the best in the industry.
