I didn't set out to be a photographer, it just kind of happened.... I couldn't tell you why for sure. What I can tell you is that I really love what I do and I spend a lot of time refining, perfecting and even obsessing over my work... It is a passion.
I have spent a lot of time reflecting on things such as what is my "style" of photography. Style comes with time and is a difficult thing to force. I think more important than style is being aware of the literal nature of the image I see and striving to go beyond that in an aesthetic sense to create a captivating image.



I began my career as a professional photographer in 1994. Though best know as a wedding photojournalist I also did headshots and entertainment industry still photographer. I photographed weddings and events in Chicago, Michican, Canada,California, Arizona for over 15 years. My unique blend of style is developed from a broad range of artistic and photographic experience. I am very comfortable and relaxed in both the studio and shooting on location, possessing the uncanny ability to be creative even under pressure. I am a strong advocate of killing your television and enjoys looking for beauty in everything, coffee and intense conversation. I currently live in Modesto, California. Read less
