I have a passion for creating photographs . . . excellent photographs . This is my specialty. When I was shooting in New York, after several months of working with one art director, he said “I never knew a photographer that could do such an excellent job at such a variety of work.” Whether in New York, California, Texas, Iowa, Illinois, or Michigan, my passion is photography. Whether photographing the newest Board of Directors or the newest newborn, my passion is photography. Whether photographing the radiant bride and groom or the proud high school senior, my passion is photography . . . excellent photography. This is my specialty. Excellent photography.
