Photography is not for the faint of heart.  Photographers regularly deal with adverse weather, sleep deprivation, jet lag and a host of other things just for the hope of bringing home a few amazing images.  Personally, I’ve been shocked by an electric fence, stranded on the side of the road and even attacked by a swarm of angry bees in the desert while photographing.

So why bother?  For me, it is not just about bringing home a great image.  I love every aspect of the photographic process, from learning a new technique to shooting to post-processing… even the promotional and business aspects of photography are fun for me.  Photography also takes me to places I would not otherwise go and allows me to meet people I would not otherwise meet. For all these reasons, it doesn’t take much to convince me to hop on a plane destined for an amazing photographic location.

I absolutely love teaching what I’ve learned to others.  If you are interested in improving your skills, I offer photo tours & workshops, private post-processing tutoring via Skype, a free monthly photography magazine and a photography blog.  I also sell prints for those who are interested.  As always, feel free to contact me any time if you have a question or just want to say hello.  Thanks for stopping by!
