Over 100 current photography clients including several trade magazines and
businesses ranging from $250,000 to $5 Billion in annual sales. We have
traveled to or done work for companies in approx. half the 48 states of
the continental US.
Graphic Design background and advanced computer skills have allowed
me to produce & host over 100 websites and design & print
brochures. I produce an annual
catalog for the last 12 years with now over 200 pages and
press run of over 100,000+. I also design layouts for advertising and have
designed logos for many companies.
I shoot with strobe systems, mixed fill light as well as natural light. In addition to shooting conventional film in all
formats I also shoot digital camera systems and produce and edit digital
video. I have produced several corporate videos including corporate
video brochures & training videos.
I prefer to take my captured images and perfect them in Adobe Photoshop
and DxO Elite. My
philosophy on digital retouching is that it should not be seen, never
drawing attention to the process, only enriching the subject and the
message. I produce photographic murals in sections up to 5x10 feet, and
also design & print trade show
A marketing solution can be found through a creative approach with a
specific goal in mind for nearly any product or service. I have
demonstrated again and again that I am up to the challenge.
Of course ultimately my work, work ethic, quality and customer service
speak for itself. My portfolios will give you an idea of the level of my
work and my approach to subjects. It's my goal to exceed the client's
expectations and deliver superior value. Take a
look at my work (Portfolios link) and see for yourself. Let me know if
there's anything I can do for you.
