Fine Art, Portrait & Commercial Photography

PEOPLE: Portrait work includes fashion, modeling / acting portfolios and head shots, and glamor / beauty / boudoir images. I’m strongest when creating artistic portrait photographs for both commercial and personal use.

PETS: I’m a huge animal lover and am comfortable around several different species of critters, with an appreciation for each pet’s unique nature. I’ve been a volunteer photographer at different animal shelters, where I try to show that each animal is wonderful and special, in the hopes of helping each find their forever home.

FINE ART: I must admit that art is in the eye of the beholder. While some of my fine art photography features more traditional subjects, I also find a tremendous amount of beauty in the weathered, aged and ruined. So while some might not find this “artistic”, I find it gorgeous and enticing.

PRODUCTS: This covers a range of things including buildings & architecture, jewelry, watches, drinks, glassware, hand-made art items, etc. As an adjunct to photography, I also provide website & graphic design services.
