I have clients/friends that have been coming back for over twenty years. I really enjoy the collaborative exchange between client and photographer. Working together we have created award winning images. It's been a lot of fun and artistically rewarding.
Whether it's a Fortune 500 company or a small startup, I fight for the best possible photos that can be produced. When I say fight, I mean that sometimes you have to struggle against the challenges and not give in until you have created a work of art.
My education in engineering has proved invaluable in my understanding of light and the physics behind the shot. I suppose that is the reason that I shoot as much high tech as I do. I have had to design and build custom equipment because it just doesn't exist in the wild. This crazy assortment of tools and techniques are a big reason why I get the results that I do.
Technology is a fact of life in the world of photography today. The balance between right brain and left brain can be elusive. Art shouldn't have to be a tradeoff. I feel fortunate to have both sides of my brain firing.
Ever in a hurry, I was messing with digital photography as far back as 1986. I can certainly say that I had the very first digital studio in Utah. Things have changed a lot in the intervening 25 years. Today I use the latest medium format digital gear that really delivers the goods.
As you take a moment to browse the gallery, you will see some images that transcend traditional photography.
These are images that make people look.
I shoot the shots that sell the products.
