I’m a photographer based in Wayne, NJ, specializing in portrait photography. I have a photography studio in Little Falls, NJ. Even though I’m local to the New Jersey, New York and Connecticut tri-state area, I also accept work farther afield. If you have a look at my portfolio, you will see that I am just as familiar with on-location portraits, as studio photography. I have also written several books on photographic lighting.

My latest work can be seen on my portrait photography blog. This, and the various galleries here, will show the consistency and high standard that I maintain with my photography. For more info or to see more examples of my work, please contact me.

A little bit about myself

I’m originally from South Africa where I worked as a TV Broadcast Engineer. Then in 2000, my wife and I decided to settle in the USA with our daughter – and I have pursued photography here as a full time career since.

In addition to working with my clients, I have written five books on photography, two of which have been translated into other languages. I also maintain a popular website for photographers and I teach workshops on photography. I really love what I do!

I get real pleasure from sharing the happiness with the people that I photograph, and knowing that I’m creating images that will evoke wonderful memories for a lifetime.

Drop me a note – I’d love to collaborate with you in capturing the best possible images of you.
