When Playboy Magazine was begun by Hugh Hefner in 1953, the offices were located on Ohio Street in downtown Chicago, Illinois. The main offices, photo studios and Hef’s suite remained there until 1965, when Playboy bought the Palmolive Building.

There are now production facilities and recording studios located at the original location, operated by my family. When this audio equipment was discovered in Hef’s old office, it was painstakingly restored and operates daily in the reception area.

This image is dedicated to Hugh Hefner. Few realize how his vision changed the perception of thought around the world and how many great talents were brought to the public through his efforts.

Cheers Hef!

I began my love of photography when I picked up my mother’s huge 6X8 Kodak bellows camera and tripped the shutter and flashbulb at age three.

My commercial work is represented internationally.

When I am not working, I am riding motorcycles, playing jazz guitar and reveling in nature at my rural cottage in the Cohutta Wilderness Area of North Georgia.

La vie est bonne!
