My bio, click on photo!
I do not photograph because I see, I see because I photograph! Through my photography, I share my interpreted view of the world. Perhaps that's one reason why my greatest joy is when I'm behind my camera. I create fine art. Click on one of the many galleries to see for yourself the magic I love to create! Each portrait, each art piece created by me is done so with great care taken to achieve the perfect look for you. With more than a decade of experience under my belt, I have established my business as a leader in the industry. My experience and talent speak for itself by the many galleries and museums, both in the U.S. and abroad that showcase my work. My images have been viewed in the pages of numerous well known U.S. and international magazines (National Geographic for one), have been displayed in the Denver International Airport, Colorado State Capital, been on numerous phone book covers and have been seen on several network television shows. . The most important images, hang on the walls of those who have offered me the privilege of doing a portrait of a loved one or have honored me by purchasing my art My work has won countless contests and has been awarded numerous prestigious awards. The latest award was the honor of having third place in RangeFinder Magazines for the best photo of 2011! I also placed in the top 12 for Adorama's Years Best Photo of 2011. You can also find me on National Geographic web site for the month of July under Daily Dozen I offer a variety of services, tailored to meet your needs.
