I’m a geek. It’s probably for the best that I get that out first. I could go into all the reasons why I’m a geek but the list would get very long very quickly. You would lose interest because you wouldn’t care or be interested in what I’ve done. I’ll avoid all that by filling you in on how me being a geek is a good thing for you.
Where to start? I could go into the fact that I’ve spent countless hours fine tuning the focus on my camera and lenses to be accurate within millimeters but a photographer having good, well performing equipment is pretty much assumed. I guess the same applies for my attention to detail which is way too much but I probably get that from my degree in mechanical engineering. No, I think I’ll start with my passion and the fact that I’m a doer. I’d rather give it a shot than sit back and think what would have happened if . . .
I am constantly pushing my photography skills and knowledge as far as I can go. I read book after book after book and I take my camera everywhere I go. It has gotten to the point now that our dog Zoey runs and hides under our son’s bed when she see I’ve gotten out my camera, especially if I’ve gotten out my lighting gear. She knows full well I’m looking for a test subject (victim in her eyes) to try out something I just thought about or read in a book. I strive for excellence which doesn’t happen if you sit back waiting on it.
Back to You
Look around the site, don’t be shy. Make sure to take a look at the menu bar up top. There is a link to my blog, portfolio, and recent work I’ve done. The portfolio and recent work sections are pretty self explanatory. Check them out and don’t be afraid to leave me a comment or drop me a message if you like or don’t like something. The blog consists of more of my ramblings. I’ll talk about some of the recent jobs I’ve done, photography news, stuff going on in my life, and who knows, maybe a few geeky moments might slip in there. If you are interested in having me do a job for you click the contact link in the menu above and fill out the form. If you want more details of the different services and pricing I offer check out the sections below this, or it can also be accessed above in the menu under “info > services” & “info > pricing”.
Well this one service is kind of a given. It is a little hard to have a photography business without photography. So it goes without saying this service is included on any job.
Taking the picture is just part of the work when it comes to making an image. Back in the day it used to be chemicals, dodging, burning and more to develop the final image. Now it’s all done on the computer. This is one of the services that is just expected of a photographer and rightly so. I include this with all the work I do.
A print, what is that? In this age of digital media I feel that there is no reason not to expect digital copies of the images. How else are you supposed to update your profile picture if you can’t download a copy? Digital copies of the images are provided for all my work.
Nothing beats the satisfaction of having a nice, high quality print to show off. Maybe it’s just me being a photographer but I don’t think the image is done until I can hold it in my hands. Printing is one of the services I offer. Everything from wallet sizes to giant 20″ x 30″ prints, albums, cards, wraps, and more from a professional lab.
I offer packages for headshots, two-hour portrait shoots, and half-day portrait shoots (these are great for families!).
Additionally I offer portrait sessions for soon-to-be graduates.
The starting package is for up to six hours of coverage at the wedding and reception and includes all the services listed above.
I also offer packages that bundle bridal sessions and/or engagement sessions along with the wedding session.
Nothing is set in stone so I’ll gladly work with you to get just what you want.
Maternity & Infant
I offer single sessions with the mother-to-be or the infant along with varying packages.
The packages can be tailored to fit your wants but the most common is a session with the mother-to-be before her due date then another session of the newborn at about a week old.
Another package offered is multiple sessions of the newborn as they grow the first year.
