ABOUT:

I love photographing people and Capturing Their Human Spirit.

My approach to my photography is to have fun and keep things moving. My creative eye directs the light and composition to find that distinctive image.  I am always trying to do something new and give each client images that are unique as their personality. 

My experience as a photojournalist working with The Washington Post allows me to quickly anticipate and capture key moments. The best photographs are usually the simplest. It’s about getting something honest out of the person / people that I am photographing.

Great images start with great expressions.  Great expressions, that show a person's true personality and inner spirit, can only happen when people are at ease and enjoying themselves.

The best part of being a photographer is that I get to meet new people on a daily basis.  After working with customers for over twenty years at IBM and Oracle, and the last fourteen years as a photographer, I am able to interact with my clients, learn a little bit about who they are, and put them at ease. This dialogue allows me to capture an image of their true personality and human spirit.  

I currently live in Vienna, VA, just outside of Washington, DC.  I have a wife  and three daughters.  I was born and raised in Erie, PA and I graduated from Penn State University with a BS in Computer Science.  

My service area includes Reston, VA, Herndon, VA, Alexandria, VA, Leesburg, VA, Fairfax, VA, Vienna, VA, Falls Church, VA, Dulles, VA, Arlington, VA, McLean, VA, Tysons Corner, VA, Springfield, VA, Great Falls, VA, Sterling, VA, Chantilly, VA, Centreville, VA, Bethesda, MD, Sliver Spring, MD and Washington, DC.  I am also available for travel for assignments around the world.
