MORE ABOUT ME -
I enjoy photographing captivating subjects and love living in the beautiful Southwest, USA. With the stunning landscapes that stretch out for hundreds of miles, it provides me a great opportunity to capture this beauty in my photography.
I started taking pictures from a very young age and enjoyed using a variety of different types of film cameras. Later, I learned the art of Black & White Photography in my first photography class (everything from how the 35mm film cameras work all the way to developing & printing my own photographs).
Later, I transitioned into digital photography because of the post-production editing capabilities. After initially starting out on an Olympus digital camera, I eventually moved up to a professional grade Canon EOS 5D (DSLR) with top of the line L-series Canon lenses.
Ordering on-line prints from my website is easily done via the "Buy" icon that appears in each gallery. All clients will also notice a variety of available products that can feature a photograph you select to be printed directly onto any of these products (i.e., glass cutting boards, aprons, mugs, calendars, etc.). However, please note that most photographs will need to be cropped in order to fit on some of the smaller products available.
HIRE INFORMATION -
If you would like a personal on-location photo shoot or your company would like to hire me as a freelance Photographer / license one of my photographs for commercial use, then either click the "Contact" tab above or e-mail me directly at [email protected] with your name, contact information, and best time to reach you and I will gladly discuss options, scheduling, and pricing.
