Photography is both an art and science and I think it’s that crossroads that keeps me excited about shooting. I keep getting better and better as an artist but also the technology is constantly changing so the nerdy side of me gets to geek out on tech specs all the time too.
I got started in photography by shooting video. I knew my video skills could get better by learning about the still image, so I got a small manual camera and was immediately hooked on the color and composition possibilities in a still frame.
Along the way, I learned at some of the best places in the world including The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, The Maine Media Workshops, and The Portfolio Center, here in Atlanta.
When I’m not shooting I like to hang out with my pup, Levi. He’s a Husky mix that’s almost a year old. We’re currently learning advanced tricks like putting the toys away and not jumping on people, but he’s very smart and a ton of fun!
I also do professional video production and have a company called Shoot For Results that focuses on video production for small and medium sized budgets.
Several years ago I created a website called Workshoppers.org, a social directory of worldwide educational workshops. I’m not spending much time there these days, but the site is still a great place to find workshops around the world.
