My mantra? Look through the camera and capture what you see, the way you see and experience it to fulfill your vision. My passion for photography began in high school and has never stopped growing for over twenty-five years. I completed BFA degrees in both photography and sculpture at the University of Wisconsin, and earned my Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. My background in sculpture influences and informs my photography.
Several years ago, I also became a professor, teaching both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Teaching has become one of my passions. I enjoy collaboration, the sharing of knowledge and wisdom and passing on of experiences.
The majority of my work is fine art photography that I exhibit, publish and sell. In my commercial work, I specialize in fashion runway, competition, editorial and advertising photography in both studio and location. I bring my fine art aesthetic and experiences to my commercial work with the same passion and energy that I do to my personal work.
