The Man Behind
Every face has a story to tell.
It's my job to tell their story.
Passion has fueled my drive to create emotionally captivating imagery for the advertising industry for over 30 years. This passion grew from studying advertising media at a young age to waking up at dawn to catch the perfect glow of natural light and pursuing a lifelong career dedicated to perfecting my art. Specializing in lighting techniques ranging from strobe to continuous light, I learned to master my trade through working with many great photographers in the Detroit market. To this day, the manipulation of light is one of the most enjoyable elements of any project, superseded only by my love of working with people.
Capturing the true personality and character of a person within the confines of a static picture is at the core of my work. Celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of each person who steps in front of my lens has always inspired me, whether it is a veteran model or someone I met on a walk through the city. I've worked with a multitude of clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to non-profit organizations and every face had its own unique story to tell. The true joy for me is bringing those stories to life through images. Stories that are so strong that I never forget them. And the best part of all is the times that those faces turn into lifelong friends.
