It seems a bit overwhelming to list such a diverse collection of photographic genres and photography services. In fact, I love photography and always strive to find ways to help individuals and businesses, and I embrace and overcome challenges. My belief is that in addition to my enjoyment of photography, my core strength is a terrific knowledge of cameras and light, editing and teamwork. I really mean it when I say: “Let me see how I can help you.”
Event, Candid and Wedding Photography
I hope to help bring a sense of place, experience and emotion to capture your event. Approaching events in an unconventional manner we are able to consider not only standard techniques but also long exposures, time lapse, remote cameras, aerial and more to create truly memorable images. My style is not just traditional, but also is a way to gather previously unimaginable images.
Portraits: Individual, Corporate & Headshots
I try to approach portrait work in a personal way rather than as if we’re on an assembly line. My love is to find opportunities to capture something truly magical. whether we are shooting you, your family or your employees, sports teams or school photos we’ll strive for character and feeling to make your portrait something truly special.
Product Photography (Still, Liquid and Animations)
Product photography comes in all forms; white, black, green screen, product tour/rotation and more. I embrace studio and set product photography and work well with editors, art departments and business owners to provide products and benefits for years to come. I even invented the patent pending Photo Crony, a platform allowing for easy and quick manipulation of the set, backgrounds and surfaces and permitting precision animation to reduce time and increase image and output quality.
Real Estate Photography
Real Estate photography typically means representing a property in its best light. Time is limited and the photographer’s job is to get in and out, delivering high quality images quickly. I use a variety of specialty gear including specialty lights, tilt-shift lenses to reduce time and increase quality. I can often capture, edit and deliver images within 2-3 hours.
I also create 360 property tours with a wide variety of amazing features. Check out 360 Property Tour to check out a demo!
Print, Fashion and Ad Imaging
The advertisement and high fashion pieces designed to sell product or image are among my favorite projects. I love working with teams and participating in photography designed to reach for creative opportunities and images that would be just as beautiful on billboards as in magazines. We routinely capture more than 50 megapixel images for incredible sharpness and clarity.
Sports and Action Photography
We can have a great time shooting a wide variety of sports, including football, baseball, swimming, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, field hockey and so much more. I bring not only a love of game, but also the same gear used to shoot professional and olympic sports. Specifically, I shoot Canon 1dX and use the 400mm 2.8 and 200-400 (560)mm (pro sports) lenses when possible. If you are looking for the magical award-winning image please contact me.

School, Athlete and Volume Photography
I approach schools, athletic programs and other “volume” shoots with the same passion as I do with individual portraits. In many cases, the school photo is the only ‘real’ photo that a family receives each year, and I work hard to ensure that each and every family doesn’t just receive another image off the assembly line. Contact me and we can even schedule holiday family shoots and much more. I work with an vendors to provide exceptional prints and products at a fair price. I also work to arrange pricing for school/team fund raising and will provide other forms of specialty options for truly awesome results.
Look at What We Can Do!
I use a variety of specialty, cutting-edge tools to turn these great images into even more brilliant web content. I call it “Purpose-Driven Photography“; focusing not merely on the obvious, but working hard to future-proof your images. Check out a few of these potential uses for your images:
Photo Book, Brochures, Posters, Merchandise and Other Layouts
I believe that an image that is not seen is often not worth the effort to capture that image. For instance, family photos sitting on hard drives or private online accounts can be lost permanently among the clutter of life. Business projects that go unfinished can cost thousands of dollars in wasted cost, time and effort. We will do everything possible to ensure that this doesn’t happen. Through my pro accounts and partnerships practically any merchandise you desire can be prepared and delivered quickly and efficiently. My vendors are truly the best in service and quality.
E-Commerce Stores, Images and Admin
Selling through the Internet can seem remarkably complicated. With great images, color variations, animations and links it can become as easy as pie. We can not only capture the images, but assemble them into a shopping cart/store front to help you truly connect with your clients online.
Shooting in front of a green screen allows backgrounds to be easily swapped. Choose a studio background or put yourself right into a photograph or movie. Green screen photography requires diligence to make the effect realistic. In general, we light the green screen with bright even lights state-of-the-art precision balanced lights to make the process very easy when editing.
My library of green screen backgrounds includes more than 1,000 options in approximately 20 different categories. We can construct practically any scene that can be imagined. If there is something you have in mind, please let me know.
Flip And e-Books
Speaking of books, photo albums and e-commerce, show off your products, catalog, book or anything else you can think of; provide online access, deliver content and much more. I create really cool flip books; even with ads, links, hot-spots and much more. Share your personal books with families, or create amazing web catalogs, brochures and much much more.
Flip books are generated from a PDF file, and eBooks created and converted in inDesign. Regardless of format, your images and layout can be assembled into whatever format you’d like.
Drag the Slider
Before and After Sliders
In addition to animations and automation, sometimes the best presentations allow for a bit of true interactivity. If you are interested in showing before/after images, whether for cosmetic changes, weight loss, real estate development and anything else you can imagine, a before/after interactive slider is often a brilliant way to go.
From professional backgrounds and traditional lighting to moody, environmental, eclectic, alternative and character shots, portraiture can be great fun. Combining portraiture and other images with animation can produce remarkable results. Using animation in corporate head shots can show personality. It can help customers understand how to assemble products and show clients before and after images. Let the visuals do the talking, or in the case of animation, the showing. GIF animations are easy to assemble and remarkably effective.
360 Panoramas – for Real Estate, Restaurants, Resorts and Much More!
Amazing 360 degree panorama tours can be created with maps, images, floor plans and PDFs for download. Multiple panoramas, maps and layouts can be linked and even audio and video can be included.
360 degree tours are delivered web-ready and can be used right on your site or you can link to them. Use them in presentations or to allow potential clients a true experience. They are even VR (Virtual Reality) ready. Your clients can tour your space, decorate and plan efficiently saving you time and money. These are an incredibly powerful tool to help you and your business.[/three_fourth_last]
I enjoy doing fun things with images, both in terms of editing, restoration and creative compositions. Here is a 2d to 3d look with a step out of the photo (note the dirt spilling over). Also, this is a wind blown effect that works well in creative and advertisement pieces. In this world pretty much anything seems possible. I have helped trouble shoot video, film, music and photography problems and am comfortable assisting in always striving to find excellent solutions and opportunities for any problem. No limits but our creativity.
Advanced Printing Options
When it comes to prints, apart from limited edition prints, everything is customizable. While I recommend a couple of options, the sky is the limit. I’ll happily help match colors, and find the best print options available to suit your ideal look. It is fairly simple and routine to convert a 2d image to a 3d composition and I do this routinely; with books, media packaging, boxes/layouts, wall prints and much more.[/three_fourth_last]
We can assemble a TON of different looks, from color, light, tone and feel changes, to a wide range of hand tint and illustration looks. This allows for incredible flexibility and creativity when it comes to finalizing your most cherished images.[/three_fourth_last]
Videos, Time Lapses and Slideshows
I have an extensive background in video work with Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects and a variety of other sound and music editing tools. In fact, my background editing sound and film dates back for nearly 30 years. We can create some really cool displays for your personal, commercial and/or website use.[/three_fourth_last]
