Decades ago, Ira completed a photography class. From that point forward, he honed his photography skills and became the Bornstein family’s unofficial photographer.
As technology has advanced, Ira has kept pace. He’s comfortable on city streets, the countryside or on ski slopes. While Sandy is busy writing down her observations, asking questions, and taking notes, Ira is shooting away. Ira also works as the team’s editor.
