Ansel Adams said "You don't take a photograph, you make it." Creating a photograph that evokes a "Wow!" moment is what I strive for in every single frame.
I'm a landscape, travel, automotive, and real estate photographer.
I’ve been refining my skills for over 12 years. I believe that great photography isn’t about just taking a lot of photos and hoping for a good one – it’s all about getting the shot right. Care and planning goes into each and every shoot, from researching the perfect location, the time of day that the light looks best, the weather, and ensuring I'm in the right place at the right time.
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 travel photography revolves around landscapes and cityscapes. I love teaching landscape and cityscape workshops in the Pacific Northwest , throughout the United States, and around the world. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you can be notified when I add classes and workshops.
I absolutely love cars and 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 collection.
I'm available for hire offering:
1 on 1 tutoring, either in person, or via Skype/Zoom/etc.

I certainly don't know it all and never will - but I never stop learning and striving to take my art to the next level. I love to share my knowledge and collaborate with other photographers!
