I work well with people. I strive to connect on a personal level with my subjects, and people in my everyday interactions as well, to put them at ease. This allows me to capture their very best photographic essence. I remain current and relevant, technically, aesthetically, as well as commercially within my professions' best and most popular practices. I am uniquely passionate about what I do; it is not a vocation, a career, nor a calling. It is who I am to capture people and places in imagery. Ultimately, I rejoice in sharing it with others.
I have shared stories for two decades through the visual language of photography.My assignments have taken me from the smallest rural communities to the world's most urban environments. I discover the familiar in the exotic and the remarkable in the ordinary. Whether capturing a fleeting moment in history or cutting to the essence of a portrait, I tell the story in a language everyone understands.
