What makes a great photographer?


I have always said, half of what makes a fabulous photo is a pretty nice camera and some basic knowledge plus the other half is the chemistry formed with the photographer and client.


Each shoot is a personal challenge to find just the right angle to accentuate your best features. I take this very seriously. You probably won't even realize as I hold the camera, my wheels are turning to change the lighting, shadows, and background.


Working through moments that may be challenging such as: The terrible two phase, a bad hair day, skin imperfections, a grumpy kid, a spouse that is just not into the shoot, a wiggly pet, a rain cloud, a muggy day, a big scrape on the face, a drippy nose, a constant eye closer, a woman who is sensitive to her weight, and a wardrope selection gone bad.


These are all things I encounter QUITE often and I am proud to say, this is when my skills come in handy. Put me up against anyone of these or a series of these unmentionables and I am, "GAME ON". I might have a few unconventional methods to get people to smile as I draw out the automated fart machine, yell, "Daddy wears stinky diapers", yodel, blow a dog whistle, chirp like a bird, or offer to smell my stinky feet.


A photo is a lasting image to capture a moment in time and I want to help provide you with a quality series of photos that shares with the viewer your true personality!



I think the best way to know someone, is to ask who they are.


So here's what I am made of:
