I got started shooting photos in high school and really enjoyed shooting sports more than anything. Sports are still my favorite followed closely by landscapes and events. I reenergized my photography interest in 2009 and have been sharpening my craft ever since. I’ve studied with several fantastic teacher / mentors over the past few years:
Peter Read Miller of Sports Illustrated
Peter has been working for Sports Illustrated for over 20 years and has over 200 covers to his credit. Needless to say, he knows what makes a good Sports photograph.
Wedding and Portrait Photography
Bob & Dawn Davis
They’ve done work for Eva Longoria, Tyler Perry, Forest Whitaker and Oprah. A great couple and great supporters and mentors.
Michael James - Digital Coast Photography.
Michael specializes in Real Estate photography, but has a ton of valuable information to share in regards to photography in general and HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography in particular.
I manage my photos in the Apple and Adobe ecosystems and have attended Photoshop World annually since 2013.
I am registered on SportsShooter.com.
I received my FAA Remote Pilot License in February 2017 and am a licensed drone pilot.
