KODAK GALLERY AWARD WINNER

I am a photographic artist. This is my bliss, my passion, my muse.

After a successful career as a corporate consultant, trainer and author, I returned to my original passion - photography.

My journey with photography began in high school when I received my first Canon 35mm film camera. I fell in love with this artful medium and studied art and photography in college while photographing rock concerts on the weekends. While I have over 20 years experience behind the camera, and since 2004 it has been my full-time vocation. I have been honored with multiple awards for my work, and the complete list can be found under the Awards & Press tab.

My clients are special to me and I want to capture their personality, their joy, and their love in a way that is artful and timeless. I see their image in its finished state; not just what I am seeing in my viewfinder. The camera is my medium and the world is my palette. When making an image I draw from my creative ability as an artist, and my passion for details.

I am an “On Location” photographer, which means I go to my clients and interesting locations instead of having them come to me. New places challenge me creatively and I have fun creating images which look like they could have been taken in a studio. All the images you see on my site are “On Location.”

Through continuous education, I have learned techniques that do not limit the time of day, location, or weather in order to achieve amazing results. All of my equipment is Canon Professional, and I use the most modern computer equipment for editing, saving and backing-up your images.

It would be a pleasure to photograph you, your family, or your wedding, or just sit and have a cup of coffee and talk about photography. Contact me and we will set a time to meet and discuss how I can best serve you.
