Are You a Photographer?

I believe that anyone can create impactful and beautiful photographs. And no matter your experience or gear, I can empower you with the knowledge and confidence to do it. Ansel Adams said "You don't take a photograph, you make it."  The joy of seeing and experiencing nature moves me to create my photographs. 

The connection  I experience when sharing my knowledge and photography with others satisfies, energizes, and drives me to keep creating. I love seeing the excitement in faces as they capture an amazing image. 

I’ve been refining my skills for over 13 years. I believe that great photography isn’t about just taking a lot of photos  and hoping for a good one. If you are brand new to photography, or have been doing it for years, I can provide the guidance and knowledge you need to come away with great photographs. 

I have traveled and lived all over the world. I spent 3 years in Italy and saw most of Europe, including France, Great Britain, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, and Spain.  I've been to Patagonia in South America, Costa Rica, Canada, Iceland, all over the Caribbean, and just about every single state.  


My Tours and Workshops

I curate intimate custom tours to just about any place you'd like to photograph. Let me take the headache out of searching for a photography tour where you are just one of many, to a tour that is designed just for you and up to 2 friends.  Sound interesting?  Contact me!

Do you need professional photographs?

All of my photographs are available as prints, or you can commission a specific photograph you are looking for.  All prints are semi gloss aluminum and ready to hang.  Need extra large?  I can handle any size you need.  

Are you a car aficionado  like me?  I can create photos to help you sell your car, make a print for your garage or office, or even a fine art coffee table book to show off your car or entire collection.
