About the photographer

A sculptor once described the process of creating an equine statue as "chipping away everything that isn't a horse." My approach to photography is equally straightforward: frame the good, crop the bad, and avoid the ugly.

Though technically proficient (well, enough to teach, anyway), I try not to let technical aspects and gear get in the way of my creativity. Whether shooting businesslike or dramatic, sexy or serious, intense or offbeat, my shoots - and classes - are always fun.​

In my portfolio, you'll find random acts of photography, including my obsessions with statuary (I learned the pictures are easier to carry), cemetery art (to die for), travel and portraiture.

I teach at NOVA Workforce Development, and individually. Thanks for f-stopping by. (Sorry.)
