About me

I began to dabble in photography around the age of 19. In 1990-1991, while I was in the Army stationed in northern Turkey, took a mail-order photography course through New York Institute of Photography. I felt like being there was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I wanted to be able to capture it.

I continued to play around shooting a variety of subjects through the years. For a time I was a Wedding Photographer, second shooting at first and then branched out on my own specialized in weddings for five years. I discovered wedding photography in the film era was way too demanding and that some clients were very difficult to please and usually demanded much more than made it profitable in terms of time vs. money. Coupled with the fact that back then I didn't fully understand the value of what I was doing.

Around 2001 with a little more than 10 years behind the camera shooting everything from parties as an event photographer to weddings I discovered I much more enjoyed working with models. During this time I did a lot of (expensive) experimenting with artificial lighting. I constructed my own massive soft-boxes and such and recruited models from a nearby university where I was living in southeast Missouri.

At the time digital was taking off I was still clinging to film. At around this time too I transitioned careers and put the camera down for a few years. While stationed in South Korea however in 2008 I ditched my Sony DSC-F717 for a Pentax Kx. My film camera was a Pentax and I knew all of my old lenses and equipment would work with the new-to-me digital camera. Digital opened a whole new world to me. Allowing for quicker turn-around. Instant results in experimentation. Going digital was a boon to my photography education and re-ignited that passion I had always had but sometimes shelved.

My whole goal now is to make beautiful imagery with beautiful people, and now that I have pulled my wife, Rachel, into my world and love of photography our focus is primarily in portraiture, boudoir, lingerie, and art nude photography. We continue to learn and grow and strive to make great works.
