Camera work is an art and I have a keen sense of balance when looking through the lens at the model/subject. I strive for perfection and will not stop until I have accomplished it! I can make any model look absolutely beautiful with the props, materials and setting at hand. With my 15 year background in photojournalist to studio settings, I know how to get the magazine shot, the money shot, the shots that only experience I have can achieve.
I am not an amateur, but a true professional. A respectful photojournalist that has taken thousands of images seen by millions on the front pages of newspapers and online in the news industry. I have a degree in Graphic Design/Photography and Journalism.
I am assisted by artist Becky Ropp, who helps create my images. We both have been working together for 30 years.
My love for wildlife and the ocean life brought me to Florida from the Midwest in 2011.
