Some details about me and my vision...
I was raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and inherited my love of photography from my dad, a photographic engineer with two patents in color film processing to his name. Dad taught me about color and light and how to make your subjects stand out. I started out photographing and developing my own negatives and prints in high school 30 years ago, shooting for the yearbook my senior year; people (especially kids) have been my favorite subject to capture ever since.
I've had photographs and/or narratives published in TRVL magazine, the Ford Motor Company Annual Report, the Ford Fund Annual Report, The Tecumseh Herald, The Clinton Local, and various Observer and Eccentric newspapers in Southeast Michigan. You'll often find me on the sidelines covering high school sports in the Tecumseh-Clinton-Britton area for local newspapers.
I specialize in families, seniors, sports, and commercial work including large meetings, product shoots, and models. Clients have ranged from individuals and families to local small businesses, to national associations and everywhere inbetween.
In non-commercial work, I've met too many professional photographers who spend too much time convincing couples, parents, and well-meaning mothers that the photographer always knows best when it comes to posing the subjects. I believe that when the subject, and his/her family, is part of the creative process, the end result can be images that everyone loves. I will listen to you and your ideas!
