It's been a fast twenty years, but that's how long I've been a commercial photographer, after almost 11 years in the US Army. My experiences in the military include graduating from the Airborne and Ranger training programs, time as a staff officer at the battalion and brigade level, and as a three-time company level commander.
Photography became a passion while stationed in Germany, and has since dominated my waking hours. I love making pictures, especially so for clients that appreciate the effort, and the art, that goes into crafting an image. I suppose it's the mixture of the two that really gets my juices flowing, as it never ceases to be a challenge.
While comfortable creating images in the studio, we really enjoy working on location, as the allure of the outdoor world is hard to beat and the endless variety offers an ever changing tableau from which to choose.
