Style

I am a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.

Together with my wife Elynor, we manage the Photographic Art Gallery in Marino. I use 'state of the art' equipment and print archival exhibition quality photographs for local artists and other photographers. I also restore old and damaged photographs and art work.

Biography

I arrived in Australia in 1949 from the Ukraine when I was 14 years of age. My parents gave me a camera for my birthday and from that moment I began my life long love for photography.
I was the photographer for the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club and my historic pictures decorate the walls of the club house. My pictures are in many local businesses, the Council Chambers and Alwyndor Nursing home.

Achievements

I did a 3 year photographic course at SA Institute of Technology and lectured for 4 years on photographic techniques at the SA Institute of Technology.

My wife and I welcome visitors to our Gallery at 6 Yalpa Road, Marino where I have a great exhibition of my photographs. The SALA Festival is an event we look forward to each year.
