- There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”

Thanks so much for visiting my Website. Here’s a bit about me, my inspirations, and my printing techniques.
First, a bit about me. I’m a nationally recognized, award-winning artist – you may have seen a commercial featuring my photography on stations like HGTV and the Food Network. In addition to selling my art online, my photos have appeared in Forbes Travel, on Yahoo, MSN.com, and many other media outlets.
The “About Me” that seems more “real”? I’m a husband, a dad of two boys, I play trumpet in a church quintet, I like working out and playing men’s league soccer.
In terms of inspiration, my goal is to infuse humanity into every image. From humor and joy to awe and passion, I want my pictures to elicit a visceral, emotional response.
All of my prints are hand-selected from various travel and studio work and are printed by the nation’s #1 printing house for professional photographers; White House Custom Color. So, what exactly does that mean? All images are printed on Kodak’s award-winning professional ENDURA paper – the gold standard for print quality. I generally recommend a lustre paper – particularly for photos that will be matted and framed. The archival quality of these images is over 100 years in typical home display and over 200 years in dark storage.
If you’re really interested, these are real photographs, not inkjet prints – meaning the light-sensitive Kodak paper runs through a chemical process. Specifically, all prints 20″x 30″ and smaller are printed on a Noritsu small or medium format printer. Prints larger than 20″x 30″ will be printed on a Durst Theta 76 printer. For specialized images on acrylic, canvas, metal, bamboo, or another medium, I select the best provider based on your budget and needs.
In terms of gear, my camera of choice is a Nikon D850 and I default to prime Nikkor lenses. For pixel peepers … some wildlife and sports images are shot using a 200mm – 500mm Nikkor f5.6.
Thanks for reading all the way through and please feel free to comment on, and share my work on social media. I hope you’ll find a connection with an image, and that it will find its way into your home.
