My favorite place to get a bath, the kitchen sink. My mother gave me the fashion sense I have today, thank you mom.

One of my favorite days, getting to listen to icon, David Crosby, play during a photoshoot!
The life moments I treasure most are those spent with family, friends and fellow photographers. I celebrate the passions that burn within each of us, and I love collaborating with creative savants. I am passionate about all things “art,” especially fine art and the art of photography.
Having been dubbed "A Master of Light” by my peers, I admit to a fascination with light and its effect in the photographs I take. I’ve studying and played with light for decades, and it continues to captivate me. I find magic in its qualities. I love "molding" light to create a shot that immortalizes a specific moment and induces an emotion. A reaction.
Though my work as a professional photographer has won its share of awards, it's not the accolades I'm after. It's the impact – on a society, on a community, on a career, on a person. I love the field of professional photography. I love the way we see things, what we capture and the impact a photograph can have on culture, to a generation, to a point of time in history.
I have no reason to hoard trade secrets. I love sharing knowledge and positive energy. I enjoy fostering the pursuit of creative excellence in fellow photographers. I love the commercial photography industry.
As a Hasselblad Master, I speak at various conferences around the world, sharing my insights, conceptual visions, and directorial methods. It’s an honor to travel internationally to teach seminars or facilitate workshops designed to inspire photographers. My aim is to challenge their study, give them something new to ponder and inspire them to push their abilities and their creativity to new levels.
To further serve the creative community, I've published several books to share what I've learned along the way, focusing on my signature lighting techniques and the conceptual approach I bring to my work.
I go out every day with the intention of breaking visual rules and creating evocative, cinematic images that inspire. Let’s connect for a light-bending, photo adventure together!
