I became interested in photography while attending the University of Arizona. In 1983, I received a small sum of money after the passing of my grandparents. I used the money to purchase a Canon AE1 35mm camera. I began studying how light and composition shared the same space. In the beginning, I took photographs of family and friends. It wasn't until I visited Mexico City in 1986 that I discovered the wonders of how a great photograph can create memories that will last a lifetime. It is often said in photography, especially if you have captured something truly wonderful, you are said to; "have a good eye". I soon discovered that I had a 'good eye' and wanted to take my hobby to the next level.
After graduating from college in 1984, I tried for several years to pursue a career in photography. I decided to shelve the plan and focus on getting a job, and work on my master's degree. After 16 months working for a large insurance company in Phoenix, I moved to Denver Colorado and decided it was time to study photography again. I loved photographing the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and the landscapes throughout Colorado.
In 1988, after completing my master's degree I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and began working in 'The City'. I was in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and began studying and reading all I could about photography. I dug out my old Canon AE1 whenever I could and started shooting everything I could. Then in 1997, I was introduced to digital photography, I never looked back and have been a fan of the medium ever since.
Today, 100% of my work is digital and related to wedding, portrait, special event, and high school senior photography. I just love working with the couples and all of the excitement associated with weddings. It is that one moment when all things just seem to come together. I am often asked which camera I use. My camera of choices are Nikon and Leica.
