Vintage Fashion Photos

Photography has been my passion since I started photographing my friends in college, the streets of New York City, and cultural events of the time. Encouraged by an art director friend, I began photographing models, After about a year doing that I “caught on” and a 20 plus year career as a fashion photographer was launched. While living in New York, I was shooting for magazines like GQ, Harpers Bazaar, French Vogue, Town & Country, The New York Times Magazine, and advertising campaigns for Revlon and other cosmetic clients, as well as hi-end catalogs for retail stores.

This collection features photographs from magazine shoots and advertising shoots, in the 1970s and 1980s. Also included here are personal shoots from the building of a fashion portfolio. I spent half of the 1980s living and working in Paris, France.

Looking back at the many hundreds of photos from this time, these grabbed my attention because for me they have a timeless quality that transcends their original purpose. They express a dramatic vision and depth of feeling that was inspired by my love of great movies beautifully written and photographed. I was always looking for the feeling, the light, and the graphic composition that would elevate the photo, tell an emotional story, make it beautiful, and excite me.

These photographs are available here as fine art Giclée prints (as well as canvas prints.) The Giclée printing technique is as refined as it sounds, employing high-quality archival inks on fine art papers (240gms) using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer.
