"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles" Hi there, I am a heavily published Northern California based commercial photographer. I specialize in interiors and lifestyle as well as commercial fashion print. I shoot both on location and in my well-equipped studio. People ask why did I become a photographer. Well, I was ten years old and was sent to a small independent school. The teacher wanted to start a school camera club. He had an old Yashica Mat camera, a mostly working tripod, and a rusty black and white enlarger. A spare closet was our darkroom. I picked up that camera and that was it, I new where my life was heading. Thirty years later I am still following my bliss. I was born and raised in Northern California I have lived in several other areas; college, assisting in NYC, but I always return to my Sacramento roots. Don’t know where I will end up but I will have a camera in my hands wherever I go. Those times when I don’t have a camera in my hands I have a fishing pole. When not in the studio I'm out in my boat. Sunrise on a mountain lake, the hum of the trolling motor, smell of Pro Cure on my hands, it doesn’t get better than that.
