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.

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.

FINE ART & PERSONAL PROJECTS: 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. This shows where some of my photographic passions lie, whether with photographing splashing liquids, rusty old cars or anything else that seems to consistently capture my attention and imagination.
