Ever since my parents gave me a camera for Christmas at the age of about 14, I was a photography junkie. Always feeling at home behind the lens and never in front of it, I just seemed to have a natural aptitude for bringing still images to life, telling a story with my lens, and bringing out a product or person’s personality and ultimate best. “Good” photography takes “an eye” and that cannot be taught. You either have it or you don’t. An ability to see what the average person does not, in a way that they do not, is what sets apart the good photographers from the snapshot enthusiasts. A professional photographer also is seasoned in how to break the rules for those “wow” shots.
I started out in film photography, some 35 years ago, and over the years have used every type of photography equipment there is and shot every type of photography there is. Yes…I do video now too, since our new technology and lifestyles are demanding it. I also do aerial drone photography.
I have done studio photography, food photography, wedding photography, product photography, stock photo photography, portrait photography, real estate photography, nature and wildlife photography, and pet photography….did I leave anything out?
I have always used professional Nikon equipment with the highest quality Nikkor lenses. When you hire me you don’t just get a professional photographer you get a professional graphic designer as well. I did graphic design for 20 years and am able to take your images after our photo session together and create digital books of them, slide shows put to music or create your very own webpage for you, family and friends to order prints or digital media of your big day. There isn’t anything I haven’t done in the way of photography over the last 35 years. When you hire me you get all of that experience, skill, and a well-trained eye for making your photos truly yours by bringing out your unique personality. Who wants the same old boring shots you see everywhere else? You want your photos to be a reflection of you, who you are, or represent your property or product the best possible way they can. That takes years of experience with various equipment, numerous environments and unpredictable circumstances.
