I have always been fond of photography, but have grown passionate about every picture I take and present to others. What drives my desire to take great pictures is the reward of seeing the reaction of those who enjoy viewing them, whether it's a picture of a family member, pet, landmark, landscape, event, or something as simple as a single Autumn leaf or a bird. I enjoy capturing and presenting things that people have never seen before as much as I do capturing things that people walk or drive past everyday without ever stopping to really notice or appreciate. It always amazes me the reactions I get from people who are presented with a picture of something that would not ordinarily draw their attention, yet are instantly drawn in because of the picture's composition and detail that awakens their interest - it happens to myself all the time. Wherever I go in my daily travels I find myself looking at everything as if through the eye of a camera. At the end of the day I hope my pictures have added something to your lives, even if just a small amount of awareness, curiosity, or emotion and ultimately memories that will last a lifetime.
Just recently I have added two new services to offering art photography: 1) Children and Family Portrait Photography and 2) Equestrian Photography.
1) My philosophy on portrait photography: Capturing the essence of everything I shoot, including people, is the most powerful way to tell a story. While 'posed' photographs still have a place and purpose, capturing people in the midst of 'just being themselves' almost always creates greater impact and emotion, and leaves even longer lasting memories. I specialize in outdoor, natural light settings at recommended locations or locations of your choice.
2) I'm excited to be able to offer equestrian photography as a service to customers in northern VA and MD. If you have a need or desire for equestrian photos (horse show competitions, horse portraits, dressage, etc..) give me a call or use the contact tab at the top of the screen to inquire.
Pricing for photography services:
I have taken a simplistic approach in custom photography in that I charge a flat hourly fee per photo session ($150/hr) and then offer you the opportunity to purchase however many high-resolution, post-processed images in digital format from a password protected gallery set up just for you and whomever you decide to share it with. Forget about having to decide from a myriad of packages prior to or at the time of the shoot. You simply pay the hourly fee at the end of the shoot and purchase whatever pictures from the shoot you want, in any size available, whenever you want, and as many copies as you desire. Your precious images will be archived, safe, and available for future use as long as you want.
Please understand that I professionally edit all of your images individually before they are uploaded into your private gallery. This means that each picture is color corrected, sharpened, saturated, and cropped (if needed) perfectly to achieve the most desirable presentation. Many photographers do not perform this crucial step, batch process this step, or charge extra for it. I believe that every picture requires individual attention to detail and process each and every one separately.
This streamlined approach allows you and your loved ones to get these beautiful images from your session delivered quickly and whenever you want simply by ordering directly from your gallery.
My Website offers artistic prints, customized framed and matted prints, canvas prints, prints on metal, prints on acrylic, and greeting cards..
Lastly, please visit my Flickr site to view a much wider variety of pictures that is updated almost weekly. If you find something you would like to order in print, just send me the link using the contact tab at the top of the page. Thanks!
