more than just a guy with a camera
I am a full-time photojournalist, shooting editorial assignments and providing photography services to small businesses, large corporations, private foundations, as well as a number of area colleges and universities. In addition to shooting assignments, I have produced a number of photo columns, such as “In Our Backyard” and “I am Here Because” which appeared various local weekly publications. And, of course, I shoot weddings and portraits.
It all started in high school when my best friend let me take some shots at a football game. I was hooked and have been taking photos one way or another ever since! Since turning to photography as a full-time profession over 15 years ago, I have earned numerous awards and distinctions, including four 1st place awards in the Virginia Press Association’s annual competition and have had four images selected by Kodak to appear on their “Picture of the Day” billboard in Times Square. Not the least of my recognitions was having an image selected as Best in Show for Non-Daily Publications by the Virginia Press Association. I also have 20 large canvas prints hanging in the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jacket’s Club.
Born in Richmond, raised in Southside Virginia, educated at William & Mary, I now reside in Hanover County (just north of Richmond) with my wife and our rescued pets.
