Began as a landscape photographer back in the days of film. Starting out with film, well before the age of digital cameras, one learns how to get things right “in the camera” without the benefit of software to edit, adjust or correct an image after the image has been captured. Specializing in general photography or a photographer of nouns… people, places and things. The camera is little more than a tool, but an important tool, to communicate and tell stories with. Photography is about simplicity. It is about conveying a message. It is about the feeling and the connection that a good image creates for people. Work in the last year or two has largely concentrated on portrait, pet, wedding, architectural and real estate photography.
Photography has taken me to many places, both far and near and has enabled me to meet an incredible variety of people. If it wasn’t for photography, I would have never had those opportunities and experiences of meeting and interacting with so many wonderful and fascinating people and hearing their stories. It never gets old. Its never the same. I love what I do. I love photography.
I don’t think there is a particular “type” of shoot that I do or do not enjoy working on. I love any shoot where I can play with and explore the shadows, light and color that is in front of my camera. And of course doing so in a manner that creates the image I or my clients are looking for. I also really enjoy those shoots where I have the freedom to capture the essence of the story the image is trying to tell.
Just seeing a smile on my client's face is reward enough for me.
