Gary is the perfect partner when devising a website, organizing a photo essay, or building a corporate persona and putting a face on a project that must engage and hold an audience. His flexibility and creativity are part of a skill set that fully serves clients as well as his art. One glance at his work in photography, video, 3D, graphics, website creation, and multimedia shows a unique perspective, original mind, steady hand, and relentless commitment to excellence. To work with Gary is to know his passion to go beyond the common or easy answer and transcend the given. As an editor, I’ve had the pleasure of shepherding his photos into photo essays that stand out among others for that singular vision which perceives life up close and at a wide angle, revealing what we never see right before our eyes. And as a freelancer looking to come up with a website that expresses my work and voice, I have experienced what so many others have: constant surprise at what Gary brings out, almost to the point that whatever magical solution he devises comes as no surprise—it’s a constant in what Gary conjures from his shaman’s bag of tools and steely knowledge forged over the years, from the heights of the fashion world to the chiaroscuro universe in the depths of a kiva.
