Photography has always been part of my life. I remember, as a child in England, trying to take photos of television shows, like "Top of the Pops." Apparently I had a need to preserve everything, even the Bay City Rollers. Yes, that dates me.

I moved on to family vacation shots and, to the annoyance of some, trying to photograph people when they weren't looking. I didn't realize then, at the age of 10 or 12, that I was exploring the many wonderful facets of the craft (snapshots, photojournalism, portraits, etc.)

Many peel and stick photo albums later, I moved beyond point and shoot and purchased my first Canon SLR. It was 2003 and I could have gone directly to digital, but I didn't. The combination of a pleasant, peaceful darkroom, my Canon Rebel with a single kit lens and a hot light with a black backdrop kept me busy for quite a while.

Fast forward to now. Many hours, many frames and more $$ spent on equipment than I dare imagine, I am completely digital and my darkroom is a deserted friend. For the last 8 years, I have photographed friends and family members, sunsets and skunks (a fundraiser for Paws animal shelter), newborns and high school seniors, and ventured into weddings and events. Every project offers an opportunity for creativity, growth and giving the precious gift of a captured moment.

I am currently working on personal projects and accepting client work (including freelance retouching) on a job-by-job basis. I am always open to work for non-profits or projects where the donation of photographic services can make a positive difference.
