I fell in love with photography in 1985, and have pursued it with passion ever since. I began photographing professionally in 1990 and opened my studio, Imagism, in 1994. My photographic education includes earning a "Certificate of Graduation in Professional Photography" from the New York Institute of Photography in 1994, various photographic courses completed at Austin Community College in Austin, Tx, and various professional courses and seminars including a creative portraiture course taken at the prestigeous "Texas School of Professional Photography". My work has been awarded honors by Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI), the Texas Professional Photographers Association (TPPA), and the Professional Photographers Guild of Austin (PPGA). My images have been featured in publications at local, state, and national levels. My photo specialties include individual and family portraiture (including pets), wedding photography, event, commercial and publication photography, and nature/landscape photography.
I live in Austin,Tx with my wife Pam, who is a professional graphic designer. We have four wonderful grown children, and now share our house with our two cats and two very sweet boxers. We are part of the family of Grace Covenant Church here in Austin. My personal hope regarding my photography is that first, it would honor my Lord and Savior, Jesus, and secondly, that it would provide enjoyment to others who view it.
