First, thank you for checking out my website! While I keep the website up to date as a reflection of my photography work, I am a believer in personal relationships. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via any of my contact methods to discuss any questions, ideas, or opportunities you might have.
Like most who decide to take photography from a hobby into a profession, my interest started at a young age. Whether that was taking over my parent’s old 110 cartridge film or Polaroid cameras, to getting the first camera of my own in high school, capturing images in an interesting photojournalistic style has been something I enjoy. After college, I got my first 35mm film SLR camera and starting to explore more creative variations.
Fast forward to my wedding in 2011. Actually, we can talk about the motorcycle trips I took in the during that timeframe too … but that’s better spent in person. With my wedding, the whole process of coordinating and capturing the day got my attention. Not in a negative way, but with so much going on during that special day, the need for good and clear communications is crucial. One of the traits I have strived for in my networking sales roles has been clear communication. I saw an opportunity to do things differently, and set out on that path.
In 2015, I joined the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) organization. I enrolled in the New York Institute of Photography in 2016 and declared my candidacy for the PPA’s Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) certification.
With photography, I give a consistent portion of my earned revenue to a charity that holds a special place for me. For 2016, I donated to the following charities: North Texas Food Bank, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, Texas SPCA, and DFW Rescue Me.
