My early inspiration for photography came from the intricate details in nature. This passion for photography grew into more than an artistic expression; it became an opportunity to work closely with people, together creating exquisite photographs.
I received formal training in photojournalism at Southern Oregon University, graduating in 2000. Using the world as my studio, I mostly use natural light and natural settings as my backgrounds for portraits and outdoor weddings and events.
With "Deeper Image" photography, I like to co-create photos with the client that incorporate not only inspirational places in nature, but also the seasons. I find this naturally brings out whatever mood or emotion that is wanting to be expressed.
