"Having successfully taught myself how to hold a camera, "I discovered an alternative to spending all my time in an office. This made me cheerful, pleasant and very attractive to intelligent men and to all women." 

I love to take portraits and snapshots using a rangefinder. Mostly I do not use flash, the “caught in the headlights look” is not something I particularly fancy. 

'I strive to one day accomplish some quiet subtle thing that the elect would deem worthy and, passing on, would join the dimmer stars in a nebulous, indeterminate heaven, half-way between death and immortality.' *

In the meantime you can find my work in publications such as Travel + Leisure, Time, Monocle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and other local magazines." -- Morgan Ommer
