I’ve created a Facebook group for local Michigan photographers and those connected to the photography industry (like models, hair stylists, videographers, second shooters, retouchers, etc) to network.

Huge thanks to this amazing company and their support of my photography.
I end up showing people my work on my phone quiet frequently and had recently put together a folder of some of my best work over the years. I’ve compiled those images into an Animoto Slideshow. The images showcased here range from my early nature images shot before my formal education at Hallmark Institute of Photography to recent portraiture and fine art nature work.
