I am 46 years old, married, with three children (two girls and a boy) and one dog (sometimes more). I am from Israel but also from Canada.
I started learning photography at thirteen when spending time with my younger cousin at our grandmother’s house in the Kibbutz. From there it became a hobby, a profession, forgotten hobby and now somewhat of a part-time profession \ full-time obsession.
I specialize in creative + documentary photography. To paraphrase the description of the great American photographer Sam Abell, my style of photography is documentary in the sense that I record the world as it is, however, it has transcendent qualities, that start at the documentary level, yet open to interpretation on an aesthetic level as well.
I am inspired by the natural world and especially by the seas and oceans.
I love many photographers but the following stand out (in no particular order):
Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jim Brandenburg, Micha Bar Am, Pete McBride, Jim Richardson, Sam Abell and William Albert Allard.
Some of my favorite quotes:
"Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop." Ansel Adams
"My best work is often almost unconscious and occurs ahead of my ability to understand it." Sam Abell
“What we need is more people who specialize in the impossible.” Theodore Roethke
BTW, that's not me in the photo, it's my dad.
