I was born in Los Angeles in April 1940. My family lived in West Hollywood until 1948, when we moved to the community of Pacific Palisades, which is on the coast just north of Santa Monica.


My parents gave me a Brownie Hawkeye camera when I was ten years old, and that was the beginning of my life-long interest in photography. I also had a strong interest in graphics starting in high school. As things turned out, I spent my working career in graphics, designing and selling signs. I was in the sign business from 1971 until about two years ago. I'm focusing on my graphics business, selling prints of my images.


Photography is in the family. My Uncle Al (Albert L. Bresnik) was Amelia Earhart’s personal photographer for five years. He photographed her just before she left for her last trip in 1937.

My youngest son, Steve, is a professional photographer in San Diego who works in the real estate industry.



I've been living in Escondido, California, for almost forty-five years. I was married to Sylvia Bresnik for fifty-two years until she had a fatal cycling accident in April of 2017. So, I’m on my own now -- not where I wanted to be at this age, but I had fifty-two wonderful years with Sylvia. We had five children together and five grandchildren. She was a triathlete and had done many triathlons, marathons, and century bike rides over the years. She was also a hiker and, in her early 70s, she climbed Mt. Whitney twice. 


My photographic focus is on antique cars of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. I use my Nikon or my iPhone, and then I digitally alter the image using image-editing software. During the summer in Escondido, we have a car show every Friday night. I get many of my images from these shows. I also include images of nature and architectural subjects.
