I have been a photographer for nearly 20 years. I have worked in a studio setting as well as out doors with natural lighting. I prefer to not edit my photos unless it is for creative purposes. In the warmer months I am very active outdoors and am rarely found with out my camera in tow, which has given me the opportunity to photograph some great finds. I am hopeful that others can find joy from my work as myself and my family have.
In 2003 the company I worked for nominated me as top 10 in the company of studio managers. It was quite an honor! Most recent I had a photograph published in the March issue of Under The Hat magazine.
I consider my self to be uniquely creative. I try to find the interesting in every day objects that other see as normal and bland. I love to shoot my photography in the outdoors with the most natural of lighting.
I had another describe me and my work as a 'caramel topped strawberry' he said,'Caramel is sweet and leaves you with a wonderful after taste while it carries an amazing, relaxing and soft scent that sends your lust for more in to a craze. While candied strawberries bring you a burst of bright color, excitement and delight. Then only to be followed by a soothing, happy, pleasing while splashing a euphoric scent that fills your mind with the explicit fantasy of enjoyment. It is this combination of qualities and traits that will leave you in lust for that caramel covered strawberry.
