*Perfection sought within his art
He always reaches for the sky
Passion from within his heart
He studies with a seasoned eye
A master of his craft, he is
Sought by others near and far
They’ve heard he really knows his biz
He stands out like a shining star*
A digital painting of my father in his studio, while he was inspecting some line art he was preparing to shoot. My brilliant father has been both a pioneer and the best in his field of photography for over 60 years. Among just a few of the people that have sought out his brilliance, skill, wisdom, and talent over the years are Ansel Adams, Frank Gehry, Bret Weston, Michael Jurdan, and Carlos Diniz.
I am so incredibly lucky to have him as my father, friend, and mentor. He has taught me things since I was a child that I would not be able to learn in even the best of universities, and has passed that gift of his knowledge on to me to help me in my own artistic endeavors.
If you are looking at this now Dad, all my thanks, and I love you!
