As a photographer who is a father, husband, friend, cancer-warrior,and explorer, I'm passionate about people and life. I love capturing people's experiences in that instant the shutter closes, helping to create memories that invoke the thoughts and feelings around our most important memories.

It's really about what you capture and the subjects. I ask lots of questions so that I can get you the picture you're looking for. Certainly lighting, accessories and location all play an important part of taking a great picture but most importantly its about you.

Depending on the type of picture or event I typically ask a lot of questions, for you to think about so you can get the outcome you want from your session.

I love being able to capture a moment in the life of my subjects. Something that not only creates a memory but stirs an emotion. My favorite shoots probably involve children and animals. Recently, I was asked to do portraits for a newborn baby. He had been through a tough time after birth and was so calm and wonderful to work with. A little fighter and such a gift.

The work I do in developing countries working in communities inspired me to document their lives, struggles and successes using photography, and that led to me expanding that to do photography as a career and lifestyle.

I work hard too ensure my clients feel comfortable and happy with the work I do. I have some clients that I've been with for many years and have been there to document the stages and changes in their lives and the lives of their families. I have others who I see maybe once or twice. The thing that ties the two together is that they know I did and will go above and beyond to create pictures they love.
