Professional Still Photographer

 

I've been a photographer/filmmaker all of my life. Shooting across the U.S. and in Europe. I've worked in every area from fashion to food, product to photojournalism. I taught photography and film directing and camera for LA Film Connection. I taught acting classes and was coach to many Grad students who attended the Michigan Opera Theatres Opera Camp. I was photographer for auditions for Tyra Banks Americas Next Top Model CW50 Detroit, I founded and was producer of Detroit Fashion Week . I was a field producer for NBC Sports for football games and NBA Entertainment basketball games. I shot the Grammy Awards when Michael Jackson won a record number of Grammys and filmed in the Amazon Rain Forest with a small group of really cool environmentalists during the milinneum. I was an adjunct professor at Lawrence Technical University where I wrote and taught a curriculum in fashion design to senior and junior automotive interior/exterior design students and served on the Design Advisory Board of Transportation/Industrial Design Studio. I work as Director, DP and Sound Mix for film projects. I paint in oils and begginning to use the skills I've learned to produce fresco paintings for private clients and commissions.

Who am I - I'm an artist who loves the art I produce in any medium and I'd like to produce something special for you.
