My goal is to show the viewer some thing they missed.
My photographic journey began over a decade ago after receiving my father’s old 35mm Canon AE1, but the photographic light bulb didn’t go off until 2001 when I went to

Because my life is not one dimensional, my professional photography services exemplify my ability to adapt and thrive within a variety of subject matter and changing environments. I offer professional photography service related to (but not limited to) weddings, events, portraiture, commercial product (print and web based), fashion, glamour, modeling, boudoir, music, travel, and hired projects. My personal photography involves many different projects with subject matter related to landscapes, travel, nature, architecture, portraiture, music, symbolism, and artistic nudes.
From my first published photo in 2005 my publishing credits and client list has continued to grow including the likes of All Access Magazine, Music Connection, Strutter Magazine, Combat In Effect, the State of Alaska’s official tourist website (www.travelalaska.com), Arizona Office of Tourism, San Gabriel Press, Pasadena Star News, Whittier Daily News, Zulu Tattoo, Faith and Form Magazine, Sfarzo guitar strings, Peerless Guitars, Mills Acoustic, CoolMusic Inc., Karenz Cakes, the Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California, and the feature film “Sin-Jin Smyth.”
My camera medium is as varied as my subject matter with my decision to use a certain camera depending primarily on my vision for the final print. I’ve been a Canon shooter for many years and remain so today using the Canon 5D as my primary camera and a Canon 20D serving as back-up. I also use with frequent regularity a 35mm Canon EOS3, a Hasselblad 500C/M and a Holga for medium format, a Shin Hao for large format, and a Polaroid Land 330.
