There is nothing better than creating something with the most powerful tool in art, light.  Light combined with traditional and non-traditional photographic rules enables me to utilize the perfect approach to capture the essence of the subject. I have a real passion for black & white, fine art, portrait, event, and landscape photography which keeps me challenged everyday.



It is not much fun if your photographer is grumpy, quite, and uninspiring. My goal is to make every shoot dynamic, fun, and  creative.  Establishing an environment that gets you excited and at your best, I am your biggest fan. My commitment is to ensure that of every person or location I shoot captures the emotion, tone, theme or essence that makes the image memorable and timeless.  



I simply love photography.  I strive every time the camera is in my hand to capture the perfect image.  One day I will realize that goal, but for now this desire ensures that the images I take are the best they can be for every client I am fortunate to engage.

Photography is fun, and that is my goal when I shoot for my clients.  You will walk away from the shoot excited and energized to see your event, portrait or other memories captured with confidence.


DIY Approach

I like a do it yourself approach.  It brings out the creativity in both the photographer and client.  I have been known to create custom backgrounds, props or other DIY gear to get the perfect shot.



Like Stephen, passionate about the art of photography and capturing a perfect image is the ultimate goal.
