(During COVID-19 I’m offering the following only: Editing and retouching your digital images, Fine Art Photography.)

I’m a full time professional photographer based in Baltimore, Maryland and a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). The PPA is a deep resource for running a healthy and dependable photography business. I have two areas of focus:

Commercial Photography

Commercial photography includes the following:

    1. Editing and retouching your digital images
    2. Headshot, event, and product photography

My goal is telling unforgettable stories with highly engaging images. These stories connect my clients with their community of leads and clients. My images are unique, setting my clients high above the deluge of over processed and ultimately forgettable cell phone images that inundate us daily. I have deep experience defining and executing projects that deliver on time and budget.

Fine Art Photography

I’m fascinated by the process of creation. I admire the beauty of a flower, but I’m also fascinated by the evolutionary influences that produced its shape and color. I admire the architectural beauty of a building, but I’m also fascinated by the building’s design as a creative and functional expression of the architect. My fine art photography strives to capture both the creative forces at work and the result. Some forces, like natural selection, are random. Others, like force of will, are deliberate. Although my work has a level of perceived solidity and rest, each object I photograph is undergoing continuous change.
