Born and raised in New York, Bob has been based in California for three decades. Bob came late to the art scene, spending the early part of his career as a business man. Starting in commercial photography he eventually incorporated wildlife photography into his resume. After winning multiple awards and numerous publications Bob began leading photo tours around the country and abroad. In recent years he has concentrated on Fine Art Shows, expanding his art to include oil painting. Painting the wildlife that he has been privileged to see has opened the door to more awards and fueled his passion for fine art.
