I have always been an artist and developed my talents in many creative forms - from metal sculpture to professional drummer and, since 1981, an internationally-recognized and award-winning people and event photographer. Years of study with the very best in my craft, hard work, opportunity, experience and mastery of the psychology of photography allows me to make great storyteller images in many different types of photography including: Commercial (corporate and non-profit) in entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, sports, financial and many others - producing photographic images of events, people, architecture, fashion, food and more, for editorial, PR and advertising use; Lifestyle Portraiture for families, couples, individuals, kids, pets, models and executives; Weddings - domestic and international; and, Fine Art prints, books, posters and cards. Mastery in each area has added strength to my technique and skills in all the other areas. My finished images are handmade to suit each client's needs. With beautiful weather all year-round, I have learned to see and have mastered the use of natural light. Whether on-location or in the studio, if additional light is needed, I’ll add just enough for a finished natural look. When people are the focus of the work, I direct them with a well-trained, gentle hand to make them look their best, for their desired purpose or "brand."? Clients call me “the consummate professional" for conducting business with integrity - always on-time, fully-insured, dressing appropriately, blending-in, a calm leader and great team player, at ease with anyone and any circumstance and 100% assignment completion. The hallmarks of my career as a story-teller have been driven by continuous learning, having the latest professional equipment and back-up to get the job done – no matter what – and delivering products and services for tremendous value.
