Ad Work, Editorial and Executive Portraiture for many Fortune 500 companies, Tier 1 Automotive suppliers, the Construction Industry and the Food & Beverage Industry. And many, many trade magazine covers.

Over 100 current photography clients including several trade magazines and businesses ranging from $250,000 to $5 Billion in annual sales. We have traveled to or done work for companies in approx. half the 48 states of the continental US

Graphic Design background and advanced computer skills have allowed me to produce & host over 100 websites and design & print hundreds of brochures. I produce an annual catalog for the last 12 years with now over 200 pages and press run of over 100,000+. I also design layouts for advertising and have designed logos for many companies.

I shoot with strobe systems, mixed fill light as well as natural light. In addition to shooting conventional film in all formats I also shoot digital camera systems and produce and edit digital video. I have produced several corporate videos including  corporate video brochures & training videos.

I prefer to take my captured images and perfect them in Adobe Photoshop and DxO Elite. My philosophy on digital retouching is that it should not be seen, never drawing attention to the process, only enriching the subject and the message. I produce photographic murals in sections up to 5x10 feet, and also design & print trade show displays.

A marketing solution can be found through a creative approach with a specific goal in mind for nearly any product or service. I have demonstrated again and again that I am up to the challenge.

Of course ultimately my work, work ethic, quality and customer service speak for itself. My portfolios will give you an idea of the level of my work and my approach to subjects. It's my goal to exceed the client's expectations
and deliver superior value. Take a look at my work (Portfolios link) and see for yourself. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
