I opened my portrait studio in 1986, and it's been my dream job ever since! Because my undergraduate degree is in theatre, photographing my fellow theatre artists was my natural direction. So while I take pictures of all kinds of people and groups, it's my work with performers that has given me my notoriety in Chicago. In 2004 I received my teaching degree, but the surprise arrival of my daughter brought me back to the convenience of my photography schedule.
I am proficient in Photoshop, both film and digital, darkroom techniques (although sadly, I no longer have my darkroom), and both studio and natural lighting techniques. I will use my Speedotron strobe lights to show you how best to capture the unique qualities of your subjects. We will learn on your camera, so that you know it inside and out. My personal style is very casual and laid-back, but my teaching background and inclinations will make for an organized learning process.
I love showing people what I do, and as a portrait photographer, I specialize in bringing out people's true spirit. I will do the same for you and your unique artistic vision!
Macintosh is the only system I've used for 25+ years. I also own an iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. I'm very proficient in all things Mac!
I studied photography in school in the late 1970's. Then in the mid-80's I opened my own photo studio that is still going strong. I'm proficient in both film and digital photography, as well as in studio lighting.
I have a degree in theatre from Northwestern University. I started my own theatre company in Chicago in the mid 80's which is still thriving. I've acted, directed, and had management positions of all sorts for the past 30 years.
