In the beginning was...

Here are a few of my earliest images. The one in the loin cloth is
among the five sent to Donatella Versace back in 1998. My photo essay
started in 96...I was very ambitious, showing my photography to
anyone and everyone at that time. Of all the Celebrities I mailed sample photos
to, she's the only one that responded. I thought it was amazingly
kind of her, especially since it'd only been four months since her
brother Gianni was murdered. Some day I would like to photograph
for her. As the new year approaches and I hope it's a good one, enjoy
these images...they are some of my favorites. The landscape here in
southern California is so inviting for natural art.
All the best,
