I've been doing photography for 15+ years, specializing in portraiture, and love it! I can't imagine doing anything else that gives me the option to work with people, be creative and laugh all day long. I have just moved to MN from Connecticut, so I'm discovering all sorts of new places to shoot. Have a cool place in mind? Let me know!
In addition to several "Photographer of the Year" awards, I have earned the "Certified Professional Photographer" status. The CPP program is recognized throughout the photographic industry as a mark of excellence. When you see a photographer displaying the CPP seal, you can be assured that he or she is among the less than 3% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained the requirements. Those who have earned the CPP designation pass a comprehensive written exam measuring their technical expertise and successfully submit their work to a panel of expert judges for review and approval.
I earn my living as a professional photographer, so I have to really limit the TF shoots I do. I'm always open to new ideas, so please feel free to ask! If you have a really creative idea or something "outside the box", I might be interested - please don't hesitate to ask.
TF Policy: I hate policies and "rules", but am finding I have to list some. My schedule is pretty busy, so please have something unique in mind. I typically schedule shoots for 1-2 hours, so please don't ask me to spend an entire day shooting unless you're willing to commission me. If I agree to a TF shoot, I will edit the images and send you a CD. I will retain the copyrights to the images, but will send you a release so you have full use of the photos.
