About Me

My Personal Motto:

I have always loved movies, but not just the storyline and the acting. 

I have always been curious about how movies were made, how different scenes were shot and edited, where the camera was placed, and how special effects were created.

When I was growing up, my dream was to somehow be involved with movie making so that I could satisfy my curiosity and, perhaps, have a hand in the process; however, I was destined for other things.  Rather than fulfill my childhood dream.

Fast reverse to twenty-four years ago. It was the summer of 1992, and I learned that East Hampton was about to have a film festival.  This festival was to become the first of many, and is now an annual event.  My dream of being connected, even in a small way, with the movie business resurfaced.  So, I decided to do some volunteer work for the first festival.  At the time I was living in mid-Suffolk County, but I made the trek to East Hampton, attended orientation, and picked up the required forms.  It was then that reality struck - given the commitment of time, the festival scheduling and the distance from my home to the theaters, I realized that I would not be able to satisfy my desire.

Fortunately, on my way home from orientation, I stopped at a local market and found a copy of Dan’s Papers. I loved it, so much so that I subscribed to it shortly thereafter.  Each week I browsed all of Dan’s Papers from front to back, but I especially enjoyed the column, “South O’ the Highway”, and the photo-journal that highlighted celebrities at various events on the East End.  It was this that kept me connected, at least in a small way, to the movies and people who made them.  This lasted for two-years or so, or at least until my subscription to Dan’s had ended. 

So life went on for another thirteen years, and it was now the Spring of 2005.  After a trip out to The Hampton’s with a friend of mine, the thoughts of movies and movie making returned once again. 

The idea came to me that if I purchased a video camera I could take some videos, and then since editing software was getting more affordable every year I would be able to edit them as well.  And this in some small way would have me involved in movie making.  As much as I wanted to do this, I could not think of anything to shoot.  So, I let my dream slip away once more.

In 2009, I was diagnosed with Cancer and when I was going through chemotherapy I promised myself that when I got better


I started to plan what I would l buy and what I would do.  The thought came to me that I would build a website and focus on Movies that were filmed or made on Long Island.  I would then go to these various locations and take my own pictures and / or videos and edit them on my computer.  As it turned out, I never got to do that, but I am fulfilling my dream of working on actual movies being made. Over the past few years I have worked with many filmmakers producing and taking Behind-the-scenes photography and videography. (07072014)
