Well hello!

Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy your time here. Wander and watch and see what you discover!

See something you like? Here's my secret: I stand in front of interesting stuff. YOU make the photograph, I capture it.

As a photographer and filmmaker, I carve art out of the spaces around me, whether it is finding the dancing flower girl and your wedding, creating the best angle and lighting to represent your product, giving your project the publicity boost it needs, or making that twinkle in your eye glow.

A wise and wonderful photographer once shouted to the budding world of clickers, "beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph." - Matt Hardy

For beautiful and professional photographs for YOU, contact me to set up a preliminary meeting:
