The story behind the lens...
I am a proud Colorado native. I have been blessed with two wonderful children, absolutely love being a father and teaching my children the valuable life lessons that I have learned throughout my life.
My father taught me that I should take something that I love and make a career out of it. He is a wise man and this lesson rang through for me. So that’s what I’ve done with my life; I’ve made a career by combining my love of photography and people.
I have always been fascinated with people from all walks of life. So naturally that’s what my camera was drawn to… “People”! Young, old, rich or poor and everything in-between. I have always surrounded myself with interesting eclectic people who carry good values. My passion with the camera started with documenting my friends and my wild exploits in high school. I still have the album with these photos and I love to pull it out and remember how much fun we had. It captured and froze in time not only what we looked like but something much more important… our personalities!
When I am photographing portraits, my goal is not to just document what they look like, but to capture a piece of their soul, and who they are at that time in their life. We all change so much throughout our lifetime, physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. My passion is to capture your personality not just your face.
I love meeting new people, learning who they are through their stories and then creating a piece of art for them that they can hang on their wall.
Do what you love and you will love what you do!
