I've been a photographer for more than 35 years and I estimate that I've shot more than a million images. My clientele, projects, and styles of shooting are extremely varied. When you visit my photo galleries you will see quite a range of skill sets. This is the kind of thing that happens when you have been doing something for more than 35 years. I like to say that I shoot everything from Families to Fashion to Fortune 500. The interesting thing about shooting such a range of styles is that the technical and creative challenges begin to overlap between styles, complimenting and improving each style.

I have extensive experience with corporate photography. Company branding is essential to your business. I know how important it is for my work to represent your brand. Product photography is in a class by itself. Definitely one of the more technically challenging facets of photography.
My commercial project clients have included such well known brand names as Dove, New Balance, Malibu Rum, Sony, P&G, and many more. I realize that my corporate clients often need images shot on an tight schedule, so I offer 24/7 service for product photography. I have a 4x8 Manfrotto product table, incredible optics, and offer Photoshop correction and manipulation.
Interiors are always an interesting challenge. Recreating the ambiance of a location is essential. Interior designers and architects want to see their vision presented in proper space and color. There are often multiple light sources (windows, sun, light bulbs, colored light shades, etc), each of them bringing a color cast to its area of influence. Always a challenge.
I regularly work with clients ranging from interior designers who require perfect light and color control, to real-estate agents who just need high-quality snapshots on a budget.
Food photography is usually all about the stylist. That said, many of my clients can't afford a proper stylist and we have to shoot the food as it comes out of the kitchen. Many interesting challenges with food photography.
This gallery is all about art. Perfect for restaurants, small shops, and more. This gallery is mostly comprised of flower close-ups, but you will also find quite a selection of art photos in various locations.
I love to photograph families. I hadn't thought much about family photography until my first son was born more than 13 years ago. When I started photographing my own baby, it struck me how important and emotionally charged the photos were. I have loved family photography ever since.
Many of my clients are families that need keepsake photos of events, weddings, or just each other. Kids, especially babies and toddlers need special attention to bring out the best in them. My home-based family photo studio provides kids (and parents alike) with a comfortable and familiar environment.
I've shot literally hundreds of weddings and they still get to me. I am passionate about weddings and this is essential for great wedding photography. Each couple is unique, each wedding is unique. It is important to tell the story of your wedding day in a way that you will connect with for the rest of your life, the way you want to remember it. Since I have extensive photography skill sets (such as portraiture, product, documentary, wedding, family, etc.) I am able to pull from my experience to handle anything you want. No cookie-cutter approach to my photography, I will make sure that your photos are a reflection of who you are.
In need of a portrait for business, personal, or social networking? Are you an aspiring model, actor, or clothing designer working on your portfolio?
Every face is different, every body has strengths to highlight and weaknesses to downplay. I don't just throw lights up in a classic portrait formation, I take the time to find your strengths and bring them to the images. As with most types of photography, great lighting is essential and IS the difference between a snapshot and a professional image.
This is my pet project. The BetterHalf project is probably the work I am most passionate about. There is a story to the BetterHalf gallery that I will share in the gallery. But the essence of the project is to reunite women with the beautiful, sensual side of themselves. The part of them that is often lost or forgotten in the day to day grind of being a mom, a wife, an employee. This new project has been a fascinating experience for me, and for the "mommy-models" who I've photographed.
