These pages are a guide to my architectural and art photography portfolio, as well as the collection of historic images which is a part of my personal research library.

Architectural and art photography works are accessible from the home page. These images can also be viewed by browsing the main image collection catalogue.

The two main indexes to the collection are geographic and subject (see City and Subject on left).

The Captions list is the main catalogue. It provides best known information on modern and historic photographs.  Photos taken on assignments and during travel are added to the catalogue as time permits. In addition to vintage photographs, the collection includes engravings, maps, and documents.

I am based in the Washington, DC area and am available for architectural and editorial photography assignments both locally and globally. The art photography is intended primarily to meet requirement of interior architects and designers. Private commissions are welcome.

Photographs are produced as made to order and limited edition prints.  Historic images are scanned with high degree of magnification and then digitally restored. The restoration process begins with removal of stains and scratches. The image then selectively sharpened, its colors and tonal range are corrected.  Printing is done on Epson professional inkjet Printers using Epson Ultrachrome inks.  We use only archival quality media such as Epson Enhanced Matte paper with smooth surface, or thick Somerset Photo-Enhanced Velvet or Textured papers with the quality of a watercolor.
Prints can be made of practically any size. The examples of 8x10" (20x25cm)20x30" (50x75cm) and 44x64" (110x160cm) are shown.
