About Ed

I'm a self-taught photographer who has provided professional photography services since 2008. The majority of my business is sports, so if you have ever run a 5k, marathon, mud run or triathlon, chances are I've taken a photo of you! I also do a good amount of portraits, events and weddings to keep my business well-rounded.

My background is in the technical field. I approach photography in a logical aspect and I can freely admit that I'm not the most creative or artistic person that you will come across. What does make me successful is that I know the camera inside and out and know how to apply the techniques to create a beautiful image. I am available to tutor photography basics and how to use a DSLR, advanced topics such as low light shooting and HDR, post-process editing, and one-on-one or group sessions. I love sharing my passion about photography and cannot wait to help get your journey started!

Photography

I have been a professional photographer for the past seven years. I'm a certified gold member of Canon Professional Services. I have shot dozens of weddings as a lead/solo photographer and freelance for several endurance race photography companies, shooting 40-50 races per year. I have experience with instructing one-on-one and group sessions. I also lead a group photo walk in the past couple years.

Great for beginners and experts

I went to Ed thinking I was a lost cause. I had purchased a nice new camera, but had know idea how to use it unless it was in auto mode. Ed changed all that. Upon arriving it was apparent that Ed is very professional and knowledgeable. He had professional grade equipment and also showed me some of the work he has done. He let me decide what types of photos I was most interested in taking and we we
