I love the fact that I have the ability to help tell the story of a person, business, place, or something to eat with my right index finger.
While a picture may be worth a thousand words, I believe the real success of a photo occurs when a viewer wants to know a little more about its subject. Also, I love to make ordinary people (not models) look their best.
Since becoming a professional photographer, I've been hired to shoot a variety of subject matter, with the exception of weddings, which are just not my particular thing.
Whether it's an environmental portrait, business headshot, food, small business, lifestyle, landscape, or product assignment, I make it a point to do as much homework as possible before the shoot. The more I know about the subject beforehand, the more ideas will spin in my brain on the day of the shoot.
(For better or worse, I should also mention that I’ve been labeled a “details maniac” by some, if not many.)

Shoot Type: Family
Craig was not only thoughtful and careful, but exhibited great skill in capturing individual and family images that we will cherish forever. A real perfectionist!
I hired Craig to do some product photography for our new line of plaster products. Craig was great to work with, his studio was well organized and he had everything we needed to create perfect images. He had lots of tricks and creative input for how to best style the shots. I am completely happy with the photos and would highly recommend working with Craig.
Craig did a corporate photoshoot for us at Intermountain Healthcare, and he did a great job. I wanted to capture several medical scenarios in various departments so I could have a library of photos to use for marketing purposes. Craig really came through. I was really impressed with how well Craig planned for this shoot and thought ahead about everything we'd need. He helped me plan each shot so it included the right people, props and created the setting and ambiance I was looking for. He lined up a makeup artist, a hair stylist, and came to the hospital several times to walk through the shots I wanted to capture -- just to make sure he had as much information as possible before the 3-day photo shoot. On the first day of the photoshoot, we got a great shot of a young family that just delivered a new baby. That shot is my favorite. Craig even reached out to the family personally to deliver a framed, printed image to them of the photo shoot. They were thrilled. I really appreciate all of the attention Craig gives to the details to ensure that my photoshoot was just as I wanted it.
Craig did a product shot for us at University of Cincinnati for the debut of our new football stadium. He was extremely creative (probably from his days as an art director in a former life), resourceful and he brought the project in on time and under budget. We used the artwork for multi-purpose elements including cover of the season tickets, print and social media advertising and a giveaway poster with the game schedule. I highly recommend him for his creativity, ability to work with minimum supervision and incredible attention to detail.
Craig is one of the best photograhers I have worked with. Once you tell him what you want, professional, casual vibe to the photos, he will make sure the photos reflect that. He takes the time in preparing the scene, to make sure the photo quality is amazing. I have gotten a lot of compliments on the photos that Craig has taken. I have no hesitations recommending Craig as one of the top-notch photographers. You will not be disappointed.
