Keep your passion alive.

So I create a lot of images!  I started making photos a long time ago when everything was all film and dark room.  I loved the way images would appear like magic just by agitating them in the dark room bath.  This led me to create shows, art photography was all I cared about.  I traveled through Europe capturing street scenes and cityscapes.

I Created abstract photography by shooting on slide film and putting it through a silver halide bath.

Then I started to photograph people on the street.

Eventually I decided to make photography my career and started photographing weddings, family photos, and events.  It is a special privilege to be your own boss and work in the medium you want to.   I still make an effort to keep in touch with my art photography roots.  Living in Fort Collins gives me a chance to flex that muscle from time to time.  It has been important for my professional and mental health to keep being creative and always be thinking of new ways to capture compelling images.
