Simply Speaking

A guy with a camera creating work that makes me and my clients happy and feel good.

 

The Bigger Picture

As a young boy using small 110 and 410 cameras then the gift of a Yashica 35mm at age twelve, I have been fascinated with photography and the photographic process most of my life. I Studied traditional arts in High School and College and working as a photojournalist and commercial photographer for more than 20 years. I am more in love with my craft than ever. I am fascinated with the possibilities that lay before me in the digital age and just what can be created to share mine and my client's vision.

 

As a Commercial Photographer, my current interests are leading down the path to constructed imagery. Some create in-camera using traditional photographic methods others built in the digital darkroom.

 

As a Photojournalist, I am looking at how our digital world allows us to rapidly record and share news and editorial content faster than ever before and on platforms never before available.

As a Virginia based Photographer/Artist living in the Shenandoah Valley, I am lucky to live and create in one of the most beautiful areas of the east coast. While most of my work focuses on the Virginia and Mid-Atlantic region, I travel across the United States and around the globe to create inspiring imagery.

The Basics that do not say near enough

Carrie is not only the mother of our four amazing kids and my loving wife. Carrie is a Highschool and College math teacher and teaches at out daughters high school full-time. She does this and so much more while looking after me and our business and helping me provide the best service and imagery to our clients. I couldn't do what I do without her support and knowing she has bail money if I really go off the rails!! :-)

All we dare to try and share

Grace is our Weimaraner. She was a gift from Carrie about seven years ago after I returned from one of my trips. She visits the studio occasionally and like Carrie, and our kids, she is always there for me and a constant source of support and inspiration.
