A native New Yorker now based in Portland, OR, Jeff has been a professional photographer for more than 30 years. 

Jeff began his career as a production assistant in the film and advertising industry in 1984 and soon transitioned into location scouting for television commercials and print advertisements. Jeff’s life long love of travel led him throughout the United States and the world, and compelled him to location scouting. His practical knowledge of the camera developed into a passion for photography, which evolved as Jeff developed his own inspired personal vision. Photography offers him the ideal medium for expressing the transitory nature of time and emotion and the interplay between them. 

Jeff has now developed a career as a commercial photographer specializing in architectural photography. His style consists of capturing a real-life feel to the projects he photographs, while working with light, color, and form, to show a space that one can work and/or live in. He structures his fees and work style with the goal of making the entire photo-shoot experience for his clients as easy, and as pleasant as possible. Jeff will go beyond the call of duty to deliver a product they will love. 

Since the early 1990’s, Jeff’s evocative and often ethereal black and white images have been exhibited in several group and solo shows in NY, Los Angeles, Tulsa, OK, and Portland and Astoria, OR.

I’ve been working with Jeff for over ten years so that alone should tell you a lot. He is fun to work with, willing to adapt to any crazy situation that arises during the shoot, and flexible with scheduling around weather conditions. In the end, you get a set of beautiful images that represent the best of your projects.

I have worked with Jeff multiple times and recommend him highly.  Jeff has an intuitive ability to find the best angle for capturing an architectural composition.  Jeff meticulously crafts every shot, and he is always open to suggestions.  He is a pleasure to work with.

Jeff’s collaborative style has made working with him always a fun, dynamic, and successful experience. He appreciates the important attributes of a particular design and highlights them beautifully.  I truly appreciate that the images he provides make our work look as natural as they were intended to be.
