Who am I?
I am a photographer,
inspired by light,
stirred by moments of stunning beauty, drama, and life.
I am euphoric when I capture these moments.

What do I do?
I capture real life images that are artistic, and moments that grab the attention of
the viewer.

Most of my work is done in available light. I do this to help keep the actual act of
shooting images less intrusive to the subject. I believe this helps me capture
more authentic moments.

If need be, I am fully capable of using additional lighting to enhance the subject
matter. Either way, you will like the results.

I can shoot both digital and film. I am very skilled in Photoshop, and can deliver
raw files or finished files in any format you like.

Where have I been?
Before traveling on assignments for various clients to Europe, Asia, South Africa,
South America, Australia, New Zealand, and North America, I was a newspaper
photojournalist. I began my career as a staff photographer for the Missoulian
newspaper in Missoula, Montana. After five years there, I then joined The
Register-Guard in Eugene, Oregon, where I worked as a staff photographer for
two years. 

For those interested in academic credentials, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in
Photojournalism from Oregon State University, and an MBA from the University
of Oregon.
What have I photographed?
For the last fifteen years I have been shooting a variety of assignments for clients
such as Nike, Manchester United, Waggener Edstrom Worldwide, the University
of Oregon, the United States Tennis Association, and NFL Properties.  My
personal projects include a collaboration with LUCITÀ Images on a three-week
documentary shoot in India and Thailand in 2005 to capture the reconstruction
efforts of communities impacted by the Asian tsunami of 2004. 

Why hire me?
I listen.
I see.
I feel.
I share.
I shoot.

What do I do for fun?
When I am not out capturing images, you can find me on many of Oregon’s wild
and scenic rivers fly fishing for steelhead or trout, or telemark skiing
the mountains of the wonderful Pacific Northwest.
