I have been involved in photography for the past 32 years starting with a trusty Canon AE-1. With the world as my muse, I began taking pictures of friends, family and nature.
Besides investing in cutting edge technology and continuing education, what sets me apart is a naturally artistic eye and a good rapport with clients.
Equipment: A Nikon d810 with my trusty d300s as a backup Nikon's CLS-creative lighting system Sb900, sb800 and sb600 flashes Wireless speedlight commander su-800 Shoot-through umbrellas Variety of Nikkor lenses Portable black/white backgrounds savage seamless paper backdrops Small basement studio
I live in Quinnesec, Mich., with my beautiful wife Tania and our daughter Lynea. I also work full-time for Louisiana Pacific Corp in the wood yard operations with a varied schedule which allows for either day or night appointments. I will do some traveling as time allows.
Support: This Website will continue to support the ongoing work of www.swi.org Like David facing down Goliath, we choose to "run to the battle" rather than flee from it.
