I create emotional and accurate photography that captures a subject as it truly is. I look for what is unique and unusual with as little artificial lighting as possible, as magic is created with natural light. I believe that the most remarkable and memorable moments happen unexpectedly and with real, genuine emotion to make for unforgettable images that stimulate the senses and emotions. My tool is the camera, a tool, like the painter’s brush and canvas that allows me to capture the beauty of the world that surrounds me.
Everyone has a story to tell and I want to help you tell yours through the images I make. Over the years I have met strange, unusual and wonderful people and realize that everybody has a story to share and is a beautiful person in some way. My photographic style will bring out your true character. Perhaps one of the most helpful things a photographer can do is become a good listener. It’s the process of listening and interpreting that becomes the playground for creativity as an artist.
In terms of audio-visual productions, I find that an effective multi-image presentation will last from six to twelve minutes; after that audience attention tends to dissipate. One of my major concerns in multi-image production has been the overemphasis in the field on "special effects" at the expense of substance, as it distracts the audience from the message. Carefully worded captions, music and the meticulous pacing of simple dissolves do heighten audience awareness and receptivity.
Reliability, accuracy and a carefully personalized service have characterized every aspect of my projects. This is what my clients expect. I am devoted to the creation of professional photography and multi-image productions of the highest quality. I only use professional-level digital single-lens reflex cameras with an assortment of lenses, using flash units and lighting equipment sparingly, as it is all about natural light when photographing people, objects and locations. I am very proud to include among his clients some of the world's leading magazines and publishers; advertising agencies, public broadcasters, government agencies, tourism offices, airlines, cruise lines, global tour operators, realtors & property management companies.
