creative commercial photographer

A commercial photographer for 48 years with my own studio for the past 40 years, I have spent my career creating innovative images for clients large and small. In the '80s I was painting on film with light creating amazing glowing images for Fortune 100 companies - way before Photoshop. Some of the most complex images would take weeks of darkroom work and consist of hundreds of negative/transparency masks. In 1987, I began using computers to composite images and artwork, moving my workflow out of the darkroom.

 

In the 90's I was operating two studios and a custom lab. My digital business was off and running. Image compositing with Photoshop was an easy, logical extension of my darkroom effects techniques. I created custom equipment and began painting with light in the studio as well. As digital took hold of the market, I invested in the newest technology and equipment, merging my traditional techniques with the digital workflow. This new capability provided nearly unlimited expression of creativity in the studio.

 

Today I work with the finest medium and large format digital equipment, continuing my love affair with light. I create images with light that wraps and flows around the subject, forcing the viewer to soak in every saturated detail. I love what I do and I believe it shows in the work I do. 

 

I feel fortunate to be able to work in the photography industry and appreciate every assignment that I take.
