Throughout my life, I have always loved being around family and friends. I am also a huge animal lover and enjoy taking pictures of pets, zoo animals, almost anything. Baseball has always been a passion of mine. I have played the game since I was seven years old, and still do.
My friends and family have often told me that I should be a professional photographer, based on how much they enjoyed seeing my snapshots. About nine years ago I finally decided to give it a try. At that time I built a small studio in my home, studied photography, lighting techniques and photoshop. I started doing headshots and family portraits. In the beginning, I did portraits and headshots for friends. Later on, I worked with a local theater group, doing photos of actors and musicians. Now I do family portrait sessions for clients, many on location.
The baseball league that I play in has hired me to do team and umpire photos along with action shots during our playoff games. It has become very popular with my fellow players.
More recently, I started doing real estate photography for a company that gives me a few assignments a month in my area. They seem very happy with my work.
Awards, honors and recognition
I have received "Best of 2015" and "Best of 2016" awards from a company called Thumbtack. They provide leads from potential clients to businesses and the awards are based of feedback from clients that hired me. I have not done a lot of work with them for the last few years due to changes in how they charge for the leads. I have also received high praise for my work with the Men's Senior Baseball League after they published some of the team photos I did for the league's national publication.
A fun fact about me
I shot some portraits for my friend's granddaughter who has won beauty contests. Some of the portraits were published in Love Model Magazine.
