How did you get started doing this type of work?
I loved to do photography editing and developing with my father when I was younger, then one day I opened a portrait studio...I shot my first wedding in 1989 with a "film camera" and did all the retouching by hand...started going to school to advance myself and kept upgrading each year.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with various customers from bride and groom, models to pets, radio and t.v. personalities...I have shot photos of professional football players for a magazine and the list goes on.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I think the latest shoot I am fond of is: A beach wedding which included myself in the bridal party limo bus after photographing both the bride and groom in separate houses, and after the ceremony, shot the reception on a cruise ship.
