jeff lipshitzMy passion for photography started in Cape Town, South Africa when my dad bought me a camera for my 10th birthday.

In 1977, I immigrated to the USA to study the new subspecialty of Perinatology (high risk pregnancy management.)

However, my love for photography never waned and in 2000 I was fortunate to be able to move to Santa Barbara to pursue photography full time. I attended the Brooks Institute of Photography, followed by the digital program at Santa Barbara City College.
