Portrait Photography - Whether you need senior portraits, family, actor headshots, or you just need a new LinkedIn profile photo, please feel free to contact me. I can provide photography services in my studio, outdoors, or at your desired location. I use off-camera speedlites, studio strobes, soft boxes, and seamless paper backdrops for indoor sessions.  For outdoor sessions, I use off-camera speedlites and diffusers balanced with natural light. 


Sports Photography - I welcome your requests to cover athletes, teams, and games. I am a professional freelance high school sports photographer for MaxPreps. MaxPreps is a national website that specializes in high school sports and is a division of CBS Sports Digital  www.maxpreps.com. If you have a high school athlete and are interested in photos of a game or an entire sports season, please contact me to discuss and schedule.  I shoot football, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, softball, field hockey, ice hockey, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and track.


News/Event Photography - Member of National Press Photographers Association.  As a freelance photographer for The Independent Press, I cover town events, human interest stories and school sports. I provide photography services for events such as proms, company retreats, fundraisers, grand openings, etc. I am experienced with real estate, motorcycle runs, benefits, and product photography.


Wildlife Photography - When I'm not doing any of the above, you might catch me outside doing wildlife photography. It is something I enjoy doing and gets me away from my computer.   I have an extensive collection of over 130 bird species that you can see in All Galleries. I am always on the hunt for mammals in the wild.  You can look under Mammals for photos of Black Bear, Coyote, Fox, Deer, etc. I also use trail cams to see what critters are passing through our yard at night like the elusive Fisher and Bobcats.


Gear - I love my Canon equipment!  My current workhorse camera is the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR. It is a full-frame camera with image resolution of 30.4 MegaPixels and it supports 4K Video.  Here is a partial list of my gear...  Cameras: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EOS 5D Mark III Canon EOS 70D.  Lenses: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L ll USM, Canon EF 1.4X III Telephoto Extender, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM.
