As a Master of Photography - one of only 250 in the state of California, I've spent a lifetime of honing my craft, and teaching others the discipline of good photographic basics. Since I've been a practicing professional for over 35 years, I have the experience of a strong film background, and an equally strong understanding of digital photography.

My methods of teaching are a combination of teaching strong basics and artistic inspiration. I believe that photography is a process of intention, and not a process of "the lucky capture".

Adobe Photoshop

I've been using Photoshop since version 6 and it has been a major component of my work since 2003. Although I believe Photoshop should not be a remedy for poor photographic skills, there are those times when the program, along with Lightroom, can save a lot of post production time when used properly. Currently I use Lightroom and go into Photoshop if needed.


I have been a practicing professional photographer since 1979. I am proficient in both film and digital photography and have garnered numerous national and international awards for my work. I am a Master of Photography for photographic excellence, a Photographic Craftsman for teaching professional photography across the country, and one of the nations first Certified Professional Photographers. I am one of the co-authors for the national certification exam, which was recently re-written in 2012 and am currently a certification judge.
