The Photographer

Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.
— Bruno Barbey

My goal as a photographer is to connect with people to capture their essence, that conveys emotion, and creates a lasting memory with perspective.  I want to create art with all images I capture and sometimes that's my weakness.

It happens working with families to preserve their stories in both print, and digital art forms.  It happens in doing headshots for professionals and up and coming actors/actresses.  It happens working to create unique sports portraits for young athletes and tomorrow's hottest success stories.  And it happens serving with charitable organizations who need their story told.

... They all offer opportunities...  

My clients choose me for something significantly above average.  We're all photographers these days.  We're snapping away, and even blind squirrels find a few nuts.  But is that enough?   

Millions of shutter clicks later, classes, workshops, user groups, self study; with an accumulation of pro gear over time,  I've honed a passion for capturing not only the moments and memories of my family life and travels, but the lives of many others.  People, places, and how light changes their combined impact.  To see it unfold through a lens is pure joy for me, and I strive to make my clients happy, almost to a fault.  I believe professional portraits and images are more important today than ever before, and technology is allowing us to professionally capture and create unique art more than ever.

The cornerstone is building relationships in the process.  Capturing people+places+light is truly rewarding.
