Creating an Image that will Capture Your Intention

My Promise: I will capture your vision. I will always meet your expectations and will usually surpass them.

My bio: My first camera was a Polaroid Instamatic. I recall spending a great deal of my younger years begging my Mom to buy me more of those single use flash bulbs!

My next photographic step was in high school in 1988 when I got my first film SLR and had an instructor that pushed me to enter competitions and follow my creativity.  I fell in love with  black and white film and scoured books on Ansel Adams and spent every spec of free time I could get in the dark room.  My interest turned to motion and decided I wanted to be cinematographer where my photographic journey was put on hold when I went to study Radio, Television and Film in 1990.

I fell in love with the advancing technology of computers in college and before finishing, I took a sales job selling computer training.  After a short stint in sales, I decided I wanted to take the classes myself and put myself through a certification program at SMU and took a job as a network engineer soon thereafter.

With the advent of digital photography, I could merge my two passions and purchased my first Digital Camera in 1999.  I spent several years shooting and upgrading technologies as they were released and my business took off in 2009 covering the Tier 1 USA Hockey National Championships.  I jumped in head first covering action sports but have since evolved to shooting team and individuals for sports teams, specializing in seniors with a little commercial work.  I still love shooting action but do it primarily for my kids and individual commissions. 

I have three hockey players, Johnathan, 23 aged out of Junior Hockey and will be assisting me at many of my sports and private sessions while going to school.  Devon 10 and Trevor 13 are playing for the Warriors and Plano East High School this season.

From weddings to architecture, I have shot just about every type of subject there is...if I have time, I will shoot it!  If I don't have time I can probably help you find someone who does.  Shoot me a note and let me know what you are looking for.
