|I am a multi-discipline photographer who has experience in wedding, portrait, commercial and equine photography. I am based in the Burlington, Vermont area but I am willing to travel if needed. I began learning photography in high school with a Pentax film camera.
I continue to study the use of light to create extraordinary images you will be proud to display. Some of my favorite photographers are Joe McNally, David Stoeklein, and Dave Black as they are masters of light and use it to create fantastic images. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). I have experience in using the latest software of the digital darkroom to produce retouched images for the client.
Further, my photography experience over the past 25 years has led me to the following beliefs:
I believe people want to look their best in photos and I strive to make this happen in every image by using the best professional equipment and techniques. A photographer should understand light and how to use it. Recognizing quality of light is the most important ability a photographer can have.
When it comes to equine photography, I love horses as a subject since they are so expressive and noble that seeing photographs of them makes all of us realize humans owe our very existence to them. I own horses and have been around them for a long time so I am comfortable working with large animals. I further understand what it takes to make a great equine image. Many people have one or the other, but not both attributes. The ripple of muscles in a stallion or the soft light flowing through a mane are what make me want to shoot more pictures of horses.
