I was educated in photography at the Hallmark Institute of Photography and have worked in the field from 1979 to the present time. Since graduation I have been primarily a successful stock image, event, and travel/location photographer organizing assignments and directing subjects and professional models in different corners of the world. I have worked from the searing heat of South Africa in summer to the extreme cold of the Canadian high arctic in winter. My new direction has been photographing people to create fine art prints, particularly in the black and white medium. My motivation and love of photography comes from capturing the natural beauty around us and working with people of all ages. I'm happiest when I can combine the two elements into one successful image.
