Born in Brooklyn, New York, Peter grew up in a family of painters and photographers. He worked in New York City as a photo assistant and then earned an AA degree in graphic design at S.U.N.Y. Farmingdale, New York and a BFA degree in photography from the Art Center College of Design in California.

After returning to New York City, Peter worked for three independent studios that included photography for GM, Singer, N. Y. Port Authority, Time and Fortune. This work led to positions at International Nickel in New York City and Bethlehem Steel in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. With co-author and writer, Bette Kovach, Peter published Inside Bethlehem Steel in 2008. Recently, the Library of Congress acquired 17 of these steel book images.

In 1999, with the new viability of professional digital photography, Peter turned his focus to shooting and exhibiting fine art photography. His work has been published in numerous magazines and most recently in the Korean magazine Photo+. Peter’s photographs are in a growing number of private, corporate, college and public collections. He is a member and past officer of ASMP and in his spare time he enjoys sailing with his family and growing orchids.
