Since the age of eight when my father bought me a Polaroid camera and a pack of film each week from 47th Street Photo, I've been taking pictures, literally tens of thousands of pictures. During my 62 years, I have gone through many phases from carrying a Mamiya RB67 around China for months to a Hasselblad to a Nikon to what I use now, an iPhone 10S.

Whereas my cameras were with me when I went searching for images, my iPhone is always with me at the most unexpected times.

I call my specialty ephemeral photography - scenes which last only for moments or even seconds.

I have combined my love of photography with my love of travel. I've been to 116 countries and have pictures from all of them. Now that my adult career is nearing its end, I can now dedicate myself to doing the two things I want to do - photography and travel.
