My first camera was a present from Santa and of all the gifts under the tree that Christmas morning that little point-and-shoot camera was the best. What I learned from that little camera was to see a shot, quickly compose it and then capture it in the right light. Most important, I learned how to entertain and evoke emotions through the medium of photography.
In 1995 I changed lanes from science and engineering to digital media. Since then I've assisted organizations with - communications, graphic arts, photography, videography, printing, CDs, DVDs, streaming, web, and content management.
Notable career accomplishments include...
- Director of a Fortune 100 company's award winning digital content and multimedia group. One of my responsibilities was photo and video editor for the company's global marketing and advertising campaigns.
- Associate producer for a series of historical sports documentaries that aired on Public Broadcasting Stations (PBS).
- Technical consultant to ad firms for improving their photographic processes for their work with clients such as - The Home Depot, Sears, Walmart, Coca-Cola, and Victoria's Secret, to name a few.
- Designing high-impact multimedia presentations for senior leaders in business, government, and military.
Today, I'm a photographer (and videographer). I work with people and places. My job is to tell their story. To tell their story with images. Images that capture their essence and allure. Images that entertain and evoke emotions.
