When I arrived in Paris I found a job as an assistant in a rental studio.
   I was the dog’s body--preparing early in the morning and cleaning in the evening. All day, however, I watched and absorbed the different techniques of the various photographers, seeing the results several months later in magazines and on bill-boards. My English was of more use than my French and quickly I became a free lance assistant to foreign photographers visiting Paris for the fashion shows. A few days with Horst P. Horst and then Steven Meisel lead to a contact with Peter Lindbergh and two years as his assistant. I was given a taste of the high life at the height of the "Super Model" era and saw what it is to run a team, which is a fundamental element of fashion photography.

   I have never followed one form of photography and occasionally will dabble in fashion with a journalistic eye.
