About this pro
I am extremely passionate and dedicated to my work and the new friends I make through my work. I am very friendly and strive to make relationships and friends, rather than have customers. Unlike many photographers you can find on the Internet, I invested in myself with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. I am meticulous with my gear, my art, and my quality. I invest in the highest quality professional level gear and have cutting-edge hardware and software. If you are looking for absolute dedication and if only the best will do, please email or call me with your request. Thank you, and I hope to meet you soon!

What I love most about my work is that it isn't work! I love meeting new people, making new friends, and forging long-lasting relationships. I love the way the camera feels in my hands and the way the world and people look through my lens. I love that I capture moments in time and create tangible memories that others will cherish for a lifetime and beyond.

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All my my pricing details can be found on my website under, "Photography Packages and Pricing."
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After the initial emailing correspondence, I like to talk to the customer on the phone and establish a relationship with them. Depending on the services that will be provided a phone call might be all that is needed. For weddings, commercial or other large-scale jobs, I like to setup a meeting in person, to go over the ideas, detail, expectations, and contract signing before all the work begins.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Art) in Photography, from the prestigious, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, with an additional two years of formal art and photography classes from Madison College. I have also attended National Geographic seminars and have over 10 years of photographic experience.
