I first walked into a darkroom in 1984 and have been shooting ever since, though digital makes things a bit more streamlined, less messy, and doesn't make me constantly smell like fixer. Photography is a bit of a side project for me, but my main gig is as a lighting and production designer for dance and theater, and I'm very well respected in that world, both for the designs, as well as my work ethic and attitude. I try to bring the same professionalism and creativity to the photo work... there's no sense in doing this kind of thing if you're not going to do brilliant work and have fun doing it.
My photographic interest at the moment is split between the very dramatic and very straightforward and honest portrait work. I prefer to work simply and easily, with a relaxed atmosphere, and practice the philosophy that one can have fun and do amazing work simultaneously.
Summers are slow in the theater/dance world, so that's the time I travel and focus more on photography. If you like my work and want to experiment or expand your portfolio, message me and say hello. I'm open to trading with the right people, and skilled at creating looks that you may see elsewhere, or just coming up with something crazy to do.
