About Me

I've been taking photos since 6th grade using my father's old Argus C3.   In High School, he brought a Nikormat FTn back from Japan with three lenses. That camera and those lenses opened up a whole new world.  Later I added a Bronica medium format to shoot weddings on the side.

Until ten years ago, it was almost all art.  The science of photography was intuitive.  When I went commercial, I used my business experience to apply the science with intentionality.  The art of photography exists not for itself, but to serve the business goals of you, the client.

I take pride in following my number one rule for business photos - Everything for a Reason.  Angles, lighting, depth-of-field, and lenses are all factored in to meet a client's business goals.

What's not on that list is cost.  A corporate photo-shoot might take hours, requiring portable lighting and hours on the computer to refine the photos.  A small business shoot does not.  A $5M home needs high-level photos for its listing, but the $300K home does not.

Everything for a Reason.

Below is a selection of some of my work. I hope that you enjoy looking through them as much as I have enjoyed capturing them.

Virtual Tours

When the goal is to show a business or a place as if you were there, nothing does it better than a virtual tour. Let's be honest. The photographer can make an interior larger or smaller depending on what lens they use. For example, a wide angle lens can make a small interior look cavernous.

A virtual tour consists of 360-degree images that provide spatial orientation to recreate the experience of being there.  Connecting these views lets customers walk through your space.  Unlike a video, virtual tours are at the customer's control.  As always, they're in charge.

Google started virtual tours in 2012, and I was one of the early photographers to be certified.  Since then, my 4,563 images have received 31,436, 896 views.   These numbers are less about me, and more of a testament to the value of adding quality photos and virtual tours to your Google Business listing. They improve your Local Search, and engage potential customers.
