I’ve been taking pictures since the age of thirteen. I started with cameras I found at flea markets, with which I had to guess the focus, aperture and shutter speed. I studied photography at the Massachusetts College of Art, with Nicholas Nixon and Baldwin Lee. I grew up and spent most of my life in Boston, Massachusetts, and I’ve been living in Paris for the last fourteen years. Most of my work consists of tourism and travel photography, for advertising agencies, graphic designers, architects, books, magazines and other kinds of publications. My latest, greatest success was the series of pictures I took for the illustrated edition of the da Vinci Code, published November 2004. My first great love in photography has always been candids, pictures of people, in the street, doing odd, unusual, interesting things, and portraits. Since I’ve been living in Paris I’ve been taking much more of the typically pretty “postcard” kind of pictures, suitable for coffee table books since there are so much more to take here, and because they sell well, all the better. But candid, street photography, is still what holds my interest me the most.
