Professional photography and web design.



Photography has never been my main thing. But it’s always been my passion.

My first camera was a Kodak instamatic in the ’70s. Later I was shooting film with an SLR and (sometimes) developing in the darkroom. I miss the thrill of watching images magically emerge on paper after developing carefully by hand, or tearing into a packet of prints sent back with the negs from a shoot. I don’t own a loupe anymore and can’t remember the last time I looked at a contact sheet. Digital photography is even more exciting. Today photographic techniques are limitless, from high-tech cameras to high-def processing. What hasn’t changed is the essence of photography. It’s about capturing something, someone, a scene, a feeling… a moment in time. Through the lens I hope to capture the transcendent nature of my subject through shape and color, shadow and light.

With a background in journalism, PR, marketing and design, I’ve had the opportunity to hang out with and learn from some really amazing photographers. I love collaborating with them and shooting on my own. My niche, if I have one, is creating images for websites and social media, for business or personal use. Other images are available as fine art prints.

My design and marketing portfolio is available here.
