About Me

Well hello and welcome. I would first like to thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I have been a photographer for a little over 30 years. In that short amount of time I have been exceptionally graced with the opportunity to shoot numerous formats and subject matter. Some of the styles are Journalistic, Performance (Music & Theater), Architecture, Wedding, Special Events and of course modeling. Even with all of the styles of photography, there is something incredible about having an idea and working with others to bring that image to reality. I have worked with some pretty amazing models in the past and look forward to working with you on the next project.

In the beginning I fell in love with 35mm Black & White film. From there it of course grew to Color Print and a particularly challenging film type Chrome or Color Slide. While I started with 35mm, it did not end there. I have also enjoyed working in 120mm (medium Format) and 4x5 large format. As technology pushes on I do shoot primarily with a high end digital camera and love it as well. If there is a specific need I can still provide 35mm film.

People make for an amazing subject to shoot. Everyone brings something different to the shoot and the challenge of communicating an idea successfully creating the image is worth it in the end. With the people I have worked with we have shot every style from Fine Art to Glamour, Swimwear and Abstract. While it is a pretty broad style of image I have to say my favorite style is Glamour. A well done Glamour image has the potential to spark the imagination of the viewer. Even though that is my favorite style I look forward to every new idea and style so shoots are mutually beneficial. I look forward to hearing what ideas you have so we can both add another look, style or technique to each of our portfolios.

To say that I love what I do would be an amazingly huge understatement. I have been passionate about photography and blessed to have the opportunities I have had. Two of the character traits I have always prided myself in are honesty and punctuality. When we are working on a project I expect the same from you. I promise I will stay off my soapbox on the topic of punctuality. Both of our time is valuable so please do not waste my time and I will make sure to not waste yours. Another trait I have always brought to a shoot is fun. I am not one of those high strung overbearing photographers who think their poop doesn't stink. If I do or say something dumb I will probably be the first to not only point it out but laugh at it as well.

Let's face it if we are working on a project let's make it enjoyable. It will not only show in the final product but very possibly lead to a positive working relationship. I am all about networking and spreading the wealth whenever possible. If we work well together and you are on time and prepared for our shoot I take great pleasure in passing future work knowing you will do your best at making us both look good. All I ask is that you do the same.
