My interest in photography began as a flight attendant, taking photos of all the exotic destinations I was flying to on layover.  My passion for photography grew as I challenged myself  to take photos like the pros. As my thirst for knowledge grew,  I decided to attend the Colorado Institute of Art 1985 – 1987.

Upon completion of school I accepted a full time position in Los Angeles to gain some professional experience as an assistant photographer. For the next five years I  worked with product, fashion, car, architectural and CD cover photographers advertising on a national basis.  I worked on assignments that included of celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Will Smith, Ice Cube and Warrant. The invaluable experience of working with these true professionals helped in the understanding of how to control light on location and in the studio.

My first shooting position was in Los Angeles as a freelance photographer for the Broadway shooting  high volume catalog work. My clients included J.C.Penny , Sears, Robinson’s May and Dillard’s in an in house studio in Dallas, Texas. I discovered my real interest lay in fashion. I was photographing models  for several modeling agencies in Los Angeles and Denver shooting 80-120 models a month for portfolios.

As my interest has turned to wedding photography the experience working with high fashion and models has improved my style in wedding  photography. My  approach is to be unobtrusive and to capture images  in a photojournalistic style. I want to capture those special moments between two people that unfold on the most special day of their life.
