I am a professional commercial freelance photographer, and have earned a living solely from photography for the last 14 years, and before that as a part-timer since 1980. I have worked for companies, large and small. My photographic skills cover architecture, product, food, and commercial assignments. My images have graced the covers and pages of magazines, brochures, point of sale media, and even billboards. I have used all formats of film cameras from 35mm to 2.25"(medium format)to 4X5 (large format). I have much experience in the digital capture of images. I frequently use off-camera lighting - strobes and hotlights to achieve my results. I am proficient at Photoshop.
I learned photography from starting out as a hobbyist, studying my own images and the images of others. I learned from a great mentor, starting out with event and portrait-type photography and eventually moving to commercial work. All in all, I like being a photographer, and find the creativity invigorating.
