Photography is my passion; it seems like I have always had a camera in my hand. Photography is about about creating an image, painting with light. I work with the light to emphasize and enhance a person's features, to tell a story or conjure a mood.
I grew up in North Florida and have recently returned after spending 16 years living in Los Angeles where I raised my family and studied photography. In Southern California I had the great privilege of working for and with several of the area's best photographers. I studied portrait and wedding photography with Ramiro Gaytan and eventually managed his studio and post processing. I had the opportunity to learn event photography from one of the nation's most well known event photographers, Debbie Lafever. Along the way I was selected to shoot the cover and main story of Grand Magazine's Sept./Oct.2012 issue (view it here) with John Paul Dejoria. Purina chose one of my photos for the side of their Purina Pro Plan Performance team trailers.
