I work with entrepreneurs and emerging businesses to develop visual media strategies and social media platforms. Visuals are more important than ever these days, and understanding it all can be dreadfully difficult on your own. 

Work with me.

I absolutely love teaching. I have two projects I work on. Lighting Essentials is a blog-zine for emerging photographers. Weekly features and lots of tutorials and instruction.

Project 52 is an online workshop for photographers who want to learn the ins and outs of commercial photography. Real world assignments, weekly reviews and a focus on business combine to give the emerging photographer a true experience in building a viable commercial business.

This link will take you to Amazon where my titles are available in print and on Kindle.

My Books on Amazon

I have been a commercial photographer for nearly 40 years. You can see my portfolios and find out about workshops I am teaching at my website. I am available for editorial assignments world wide.
