Great stuff!

Three decades in photography and a foundation in journalism, these are the building blocks of uniquely great images! I've photographed while hanging off buildings and out of helicopters. In the heat of Africa and the Dominican Republic. I've been in chicken processing plants and steel mills. Please see my about page for more details!

Location photography is my forté! I love to travel and will go just about anywhere, although, I'm not a fan of roller coasters!

  • Editorial - single and multiple images

  • Commercial - construction, advertising, industrial, architectural

  • Corporate - portraiture, promotion, website, social media

  • Portraiture - business, families and destinations

  • PhotoShop Editing - Digital post-processing skills are absolutely essential in today’s content-rich environment. Having a photographer who also provides digital editing is essential! For clients, all basic editing is included in the rate I quote for the shoot. Any “heavy editing” of images I’ve taken for your assignment, are charged at a reduced rate - which we discuss up front. For others who need editing for their digital images - you must own the copyright of the photo - I charge $75/hr.

I do not have a "day rate", typically a set price for an eight-hour period of time. Nor do I have hourly rates. Both methods of pricing are unfair. Day rates do not take into consideration details and difficulties. Hourly rates just end up with surprises, frustrations and usually missed shots. I price each project according to your needs, usage, location, and requirements to get the images you want and need. I'm competitive and fair. And my invoices don’t come with surprises, like travel, meals and other expenses tacked on. The price is the price. If adjustments need to be made due to unforeseen circumstances or significant changes in project scope, I contact you prior to invoicing! Let’s begin discussing working together to get the absolute best images!

A word about weddings...Although I do not classify myself as a wedding photographer, I've done quite a few. My approach is journalistic in style. If you'd like to see my portfolio, please email me and I'll send you the link to the hidden page. If you find it on this website without my help, there's a 15% discount off my regular fee! I shoot for the entire day - not by the hour. Hopefully, this is the once-in-a-lifetime event for you, capturing the absolute best is my goal! A great day, and great images
