I've been a serious photographer all my life. I am especially good at getting people to "be themselves on camera." Most people get weird expressions when they are facing a camera, so what they end up with is a facsimile of what they "think" they should look like. I can break through that and get them to be their "authentic" selves in front of my camera.


When I start a shoot, I am never look for just "good" photos. I am always looking for truly "EPIC" shots. We don't always get all the way to "EPIC", but I usually get pretty close--and it's always better than "good."

A fun fact about me

I am a former Air Force Pilot and professional race car driver. I am also a novelist.
