I LOVE Philadelphia and have a vast archive of real estate, portrait and street photography. My work has been published in Popular Photography Magazine, Philadelphia City Paper and on numerous websites including Hidden City Philadelphia, Curbed Philly, Plan Philly's "Eyes on the Street."

Philadelphia documentary photography is my primary interest and I am working on several ongoing photography projects in 2014. Some of these series may be shown in part on flickr and my website or as a full collection in future publications and exhibits.

Many of the photos I have taken are of vacant & abandoned Philadelphia industrial buildings, some of which my partners and I (or our associates) have converted from former industrial uses into live/work lofts. I am also interested in documenting vintage retail and manufacturing----Philadelphia companies still producing goods in old factories with original equipment. With that series, I create environmental portraits of owners and employees, proud to be working in these factories with a long history before them.

I am a contributor to Hidden City Philadelphia, a non-profit organization with a mission to "Inspire people to be curious about the city, to fall in love with its remarkable but lesser-known places, and to give their time, resources, and ideas to realize new futures for the places and communities where we work."

My author archive on Hidden City Daily can be found here:

In 2012, I joined the Leadership Team of the Philadelphia Photo League which was formed to emulate the original New York Photo League and focus on documenting our city and volunteering our collective group photography skills to work with local non-profits. Our motto is "Changing the world one picture at a time." New members are welcome to join:

I also volunteer on the Membership Committee of PPAC (Philadelphia Photo Arts Center) a non- profit offering educational programs, exhibitions, lectures, printing services and Philly Photo Day:
