I've been shooting since I had a black and white darkroom in my parents utility room at age 14. Now, 40+ years later, I'm still taking images... but have changed my, ah, focus. As a wanna-be chef I both love cooking and shooting food. This love of great cuisine and making wonderful images carries over into my professional photography life. I love capturing the color and textures of food, making the viewer seemingly smell the food on the print. I know special techniques to make hot food "feel" hot and cold food cold in an image, conveying the way the food was prepared and presented by my client. I also do real estate photography, from basic images to higher end edited shots. Having worked several years at a Real Estate firm, I understand what the potential buyer wants to see. I have been photographing Commercial Real Estate and residential for clients across the US.
