I've been shooting photographs since 1980. I started out in film working as a photographer for my high school newspaper and yearbook wih a darkroom in my garage, then progressed in and after college as a wedding, event and model photographer. I won a few awards along the way then my career changed to music. As I pursued music academically and professionally,  I kept coming back to my cameras. With the age of digital photography, my hours and hours of acquired darkroom techniques support me now behind the digital camera.  In the recent past, I used to shoot photos for Google Business View. Now I've scaled back to focus more on people. I'm also still involved in music - I am an in-demand orchestral conductor working in Austin, TX and the surrounding areas. 

I have always enjoyed photographing people and nature. 
Candid photography was my first love. Capturing people being comfortable

in their own element is key to a good photograph. I have since branched out to add other areas of demand back into my schedule including portraits, special events, real estate and corporate photos. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to answer questions. 

Contact me for more information. 


See you on the other side of the lens.
