About
Extensive experience in a wide range of photographic media

Having over twenty years experience in all areas of photography, I am passionate and can contribute my skills and experience to any photographic situation. My knowledge in the industry has ingrained the importance of establishing solid relationships built on excellent service.

I possess graphic design skills and am very knowledgeable in Photoshop, digital video and video editing. I am always learning new skills and keep abreast of the latest digital techniques. Having owned my own business, I understand the process required to complete major projects from start to finish.
