I've been a photographer since my teens, pursuing photography full time since the start of 2013 when I left the software industry after a long and successful career. It was time to fulfill a promise I made when I left the photography business in the late 70's. Back then, the software industry was new, challenging, wide open and there were fortunes to be made. And I needed the money. Photography remained a passion though, so when I began to tire of the corporate world, photography was the only thing I wanted to do. I am based in the Chicago Metro area. Specifically the Fox River Valley corridor around towns and cities like Yorkville, Aurora, Oswego, Geneva, St. Charles and Naperville. I do commercial work, and lifestyle photography on location, indoors or out. Sometimes with a cart of equipment, an assistant, a makeup artist, stylists. or other times its just me and a camera. When you decide to hire me, we will figure all that out.

Email is by far the best way to reach me. Email me with your contact info and a brief description of your questions, or requirements. If you must call, you will probably have to leave a message but I do return all my messages as soon as I can. I do provide a contact form you may use if you wish. 

I enjoy working with other photographers and creatives collaborating on projects and concepts. Email me with ideas, questions or details!

My blog offers more insight into my thoughts on photography, on the equipment I use and occasionally, a peek at the business end of it. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
