About Me


A portrait, by definition should portray. It should go beyond showing just a view of a face, it should reveal the soul of a person. Anyone with a camera can take a "picture", but it takes a special degree of sensitivity and years of education to create an image that stirs the emotion of the viewer.

This is the goal I have for everyone who lays, sits, crawls or stands before the camera, to bring out the inner beauty and personality each of us has. It might mean showing the closeness of a family, the bonding between Mother and Child, the innocence of childhood or the purity of a newborn baby.

The key to the success of your portrait lies in spending time prior and during the photography session talking about "your" needs, "your" desires, "your" fears, and "your" objectives. The more prepared you are for your session, the easier it will be for you to be relaxed, look better and receive from us, a portrait you will be proud to own or give as a gift.

When I started the business in 1987, I have always aspired to produce the finest photography I was capable of, without compromise. I have never regretted that decision and neither have my clients. Quality does not go out of style. It costs less in the long run, and is always appreciated by those who know the difference. You see - a portrait you truly love is priceless...and one that you hate, is worthless!

Technology and innovation in our imaging is always the norm. Taking from the classical style of posing and lighting, we stretch the limits and always strive to give you the most unique look, a one of a kind image.

My love and fascination for photography began as a young adult. For over 35 years i have worked within the photography field, and as a Certified Professional Photographer since 1993. I earned my FSA in 1998, Photographic Craftsman in 2001, Kodak Gallery Award in 2003, and have been published both nationally and internationally. I am also a member of the ASP. I have been recognized as a leader in the Imaging Field. I have shared my insight all over the country teaching and being involved not only here in Florida, but also in Georgia, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, South Carolina and Professional Photographers of New England, I have also been a lecturer for PPA, WPPI, FPP, GPPA, PPANE, TPPA, and local organizations as well.

As a national award winning photographer, and more recently First Place Georgia Multi Maker Wedding Album in 2004. I attend over 200 hours of education per year at many schools and seminars throughout the country. I look to my peers, print media and classical painters for my inspirations. With the experience, and the ability to give a well rounded perspective, I bring to the art of photography a high level of skill and insight. I am inspired to capture the essence of every client and to exceed every expectation.
