I grew up in the small town of Point of Rocks, Maryland, moved in my teens to Bellingham, Washington; and latterly settled in beautiful West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  While an American citizen, I happily in 2014 became a Canadian citizen too; so I have dual citizenship.

Being an avid photographer since 2007, I serve primarily the Greater/Metro Vancouver area of British Columbia and the Pacific North-West Washington and destination locations.

I utilize professional top-quality equipment capable of studio, client in-home, corporate business-site, or on-location photographic applications.

  • Canon 5D Mark III's
  • Diversified pro-series L lenses
  • Profoto D1Air-500 studio Monolights
  • Profoto B1Air-500 location Flashes
  • LED Lights: Westcott Ice Light 2's, Lowel GL-1, Litepanels Micro-Pro, Aputure HR672S's
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Canon 600EX-RT Speed lights
  • Lastolite/Westcott/Profoto/Rogue/California Sunbounce - quality light modifiers
  • Manfrotto/Matthews MSE/Gitzo - Grip Hardware
  • Adobe CS6/Lightroom & various other creative photography Software

With a versatile array of quality equipment, combined with confidence in my skills, I am adaptive to almost any photographic application or situation; domestic or nearly any world destination.

Life favors those that are prepared, organized, dedicated, hard working and determined - those qualities are hallmarks of my unique services to YOU.  My conduct is performed conscientiously with care, fun and feeling. My post-processing skills are considered excellent, which draws upon my computer experience during my 19 years in the customs brokerage industry.

As well, continuous improvement commitments:

  • Viewing thousands of hours of training videos
  • Avidly reading countless books & journals
  • Studying not only the technical but the creative side of the topic of photography.

If you, or any of your group members or guests, are camera shy, have any worries or self-doubt about being photographed  - don't!  I will, as a caring human being, with skill & artistry: make ladies look beautiful, bringing out ones' special qualities; and gentlemen composed calm & collected.

With your trust, my conscientiousness results-oriented determination, we will together, embrace and capture the present.

I am only one click away - so let's start the journey of capturing time and cherished memories, through treasured photographs...
