I started my passion in photography as a young teen. I was inspired by my father who was a hobbiest photographer himself.
Although I did take a basic photography course early in my career, most of my acquired skills were self taught through many years of trial and error.
I have been published in several wedding/bridal magazines featuring my work over the years. I continue to learn and grow my passion by constantly learning new techniques through online webinars and workshops. One of my passions is sharing my extensive knowledge with others looking to gain experience in this rewarding field. I look forward to sharing it with you.
It’s something that can’t be explained. The rewards of satisfying a client with my work is beyond description. Knowing I have made a difference in someone’s life through my artistic vision is why I am a professional photographer.

I’ll first get to know what drives my students. I’ll want to know why they chose photography as their choice for acquiring more knowledge and education. Regardless of whether your just a hobbiest or wanting tips for a specific genre, or a semi-pro looking to gain more knowledge, I am confident we can work together to achieve those goals.
I have over 25 years experience in various fields and genres of photography from weddings, portraiture, sports, children/families, product photography, nature/landscapes, high school graduates/seniors, and post processing. I also have extensive knowledge and experience using natural and artificial lighting techniques.

Most of my past Students were colleagues looking to get into the rewarding field of wedding photography. I have also worked with hobbiest just wanting to learn more on basic lighting and camera use.
All my events are unique and special. I know that sounds cliche’, but it is very true. Once you develop a passion for something, every job/client is unique and the rewards of meeting or going beyond their expectations becomes something beyond description. Photography is an art & should be treated as one. Everything you create is unique.
Never stop learning. As long as I’ve been in the field, my education and training continue to this day. There will always be new techniques to learn and grow from.
Find a genre you are passionate about. If you’re just learning the basics, get familiar with your equipment and don’t worry about not having pro grade equipment. Most digital cameras these days offer excellent image quality. Make use of what you already have and as your skills sharpen, look into upgrading at a later time.
