I am a visual artist, drawn to the immediacy of photography, eye candy of design, and tactile nature of clay, paint, and woodworking. I become giddy over architectural salvage, cracked peeling paint, old colored glass and all things textural. I am a purveyor of the old and unwanted — the keeper of memories.
About Me and My Process
I am an on-location, natural light photographer in the Winter Park/Orlando area. I capture the real, actual, beautiful you. While I make every effort to ensure your session goes smoothly, I do not force little ones to “be still and smile”. I will not ask you to say cheese. I do enjoy a good family photo for the wall where everyone is smiling, but my usual approach is much more candid and casual. Please consider whether my style matches your expectations when booking a shoot.
My artistic process after your photo session is to cull and individually hand-edit all of your images in my digital darkroom. This represents the bulk of my time spent on your images–the photo session itself is really just the very beginning. I carefully choose the loveliest images from your session. I do not simply provide a gallery of unedited “proofs” for you to select from; I spend hours carefully editing each image in your gallery. No guesswork about how I will edit the images you choose–what you see is the result of my complete artistic process.
I am an art-minded photographer who creates meaningful images.
