Photography applied to portraiture has always been my first calling. I’ve been an admirer of Arnold Newman, Karsh, and Gordon Parks for three decades.

Greg Kostraba sits at his Stienway.







Graham Cooks, I’ve long admired this man for his work and decency.

My college roomate dropped by the studio with his son a few years ago. This is an instinctive portrait I made quickly of a young man with a bright future.

Father Kurt

While I was attending graduate school at Purdue University, I was told a couple times, “you photograph Indiana like Vonnegut writes about it.”

Later that year I was commissioned to photograph Kurt Vonnegut’s brother Bernard Vonnegut.  I was touched with Kurt’s mention of his brother in his last novel Timequake.

His brother had recently passed on;  I wondered if he was aware of the photograph I created of Bernard, so I wrote him a note and sent off a couple prints to his agent.

I received this letter just a couple days later.
