Please note: If I send you a FR, it's because I like your style/talent/abilities and I see (hopefully) a future project involving you. It is meant as a sincere request.

The first thing you should know about me is that my only fear is mediocrity, and my approach to life and work is the same — full of humor, spontaneity, and a lot of passion.

I've been photographing for 30 years, had the big commercial studio where we photographed everything from paint buckets to Grammy winning singers.  Learned a heck of a lot about shooting in the process. 

Moved out of the studio, bought a huge grip trailer - a la the movie industry - and take my gear wherever I want to shoot, mostly between Georgia and the Chesapeake Bay. 

After years of shooting what I had to, I now focus on telling neat stories about neat people and celebrating femininity and intimacy.

I shoot digital and film - still shoot my boxes of Polaroid 665 from my work with them - depending on the project. 35 mm, medium format, 4x5 - I like them all. 

Lighting is intuitive to me, but I don't like it overdone.  Headlights, streetlights, candlelight, strobe lights, tungsten lights, all of the above - it works.

I've been a firefighter/EMT, delivered babies, run into burning buildings, had people die in my arms, breathed life back into people, flown planes, scuba dived, taken my sailboat to the Caribbean for a month, driven a big rig, and taught myself photography in my spare time.

I married an incredible woman who became my business partner/producer, have survived cancer, and don’t want to waste moment of my life.

I love shooting - would do it every day if I could.

Let’s get to work
