Artist | Photography
United States
Based in Chicago.

About Me:

I've been taking photos for over 30 years, starting with film and moving to digital in 2004/2005. After studying photography in college, I worked professionally as a photojournalist and portrait photographer, eventually including commercial, weddings and anything else to pay the bills.

I use DeviantArt as a place to test out work and understand how others see it. It is also a place to show different projects or images which may otherwise never see the light of day.

Studio Location: Chicago

Are you in the Chicago area (or are passing through) and interested in posing? Drop me a note! I enjoy working with both men and women. All shapes and sizes welcome!

I also want to give a huge thank you to all the friends and supporters I've met through Deviant Art! You guys have always been there when I hit my periods of self doubt and inspired me through your comments and examples to get out there and keep working.
