Greetings Everyone,

The best part of our lives is the mix of a profession we love with the one that we love. At the age of 13 my parents bought me my first 35mm camera. Learning how to use it was a dream; learning how it worked was a fascination. A camera in my hand was the key that would unlock countless doors for the rest of my life. The best part is that I still feel that way today. Photography is the most enjoyable profession I could have chosen.

Learning and working with fabulous portrait and wedding studios set me up for my opportunity to work with people. Working and learning from one of the best commercial / industrial studios sent me on another journey - that of a very technical nature. I now have the best of both worlds. I've been able to combine my studio to accommodate photography for both commercial and special events.

This has allowed me to balance my life professionally and personally. By nature, commercial work is extraordinarily technical and precise while the social events allow me to be more candid with people in capturing their emotions.
