Introduction: With my photography, I'm thorough, detail oriented and creative. From examining the quality and direction of the light on scene, to composing each shot in an artistic and attractive way, to the careful post processing of each image. I take it seriously and I strive to produce only the highest quality work that I possibly can on every shoot. Also, I know your time is valuable. I'm very flexible and willing to work around your schedule and will have the final images delivered in a timely fashion (Typically within 24-30 hours) There is something about the ability to capture and freeze moments in time that can only be experienced again in your mind, with the help of a photograph. It's fascinating. :-) Also, the ability to capture a beautiful scene, and enhance it in an artistic way, putting my own individual stamp on it is very rewarding, and an awesome form of self expression!

Nature Photography

Enjoyed a wonderful experience working with him on a project that was near and dear to my heart. I could tell immediately that he was the perfect person for the job as he took the time to understand the photos I was looking for and walked me through the process every step. Most importantly, the finished project, the photos, were spectacular. Will definitely hire again!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Based on the size of the property and how many final photos are needed

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I'm a very outgoing and friendly person and I go out of my way to make new people I meet feel comfortable. I treat new customers the same way as I would treat customers I've worked with for years.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I also work for PlanOmatic as a professional real estate photographer. I've been trained extensively for this type of work, have a lot of experience, and understand the types of images that are needed for the marketing of real estate at a high level.
