I am a professional photographer working in the greater Houston, Texas area.
I like to think of my style as evolving. I love the use of vivid colors but also find black and white photographs mesmerizing. I believe elegance, romance, and timeless beauty still has a place in traditional photography. I also like to push the edge depending on the subject and the composition. I have used an infrared camera to capture some unique images of people and landscapes.
I specialize in portraiture. I have developed a love for traditional portrait photography which uses classic lighting and classical lighting patterns developed by the old masters. I also love weddings and special events.
Having committed to improving my photographic education as well as my technique, I earned the Professional Photographers Association Certified Professional Photographers designation. I am a member of several professional photographer’s associations such as the Professional Photographers Association, the American Society of Media Professionals, the National Press Photographers Association, as well as the Texas Professional Photographers Association.
In my life before professional photography, I had a career as an officer in the United States Army. I served for over twenty years and afterward retired to the southeast Texas area.
After serving in the military, I worked in public education and also earned a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership.
I have an FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot License. I now own two drones and enjoy capturing video and photos from above the greater Houston area.
