| Photographer & Videographer |
I feel that for a photographer to be a success they have to know themselves well. There has to be a yearning to create a particular look or feel in their images. The things that the individual photographer feels passionate about will always bring about the best images. I am a fan of the human form, both female & male and try to show this in my work.

I received my first camera as a gift for my 12th birthday. It was a Kodak Instamatic 104 that used the drop in cartridge film and Flash Cubes. I have been hooked ever since.

Throughout the years I have owned many different types and styles of cameras. All had unique features, many that I liked and others that I didn't. The most fun I ever had with a camera and the images it produced was the Polaroid Swinger. I liked the fun look of that camera and the B&W images that it produced were fun to play with and manipulate.

In 1996 I was asked to speak about my style of glamour photography at a local camera club meeting. This sparked an interest in training and teaching that I have pursued ever since. I now do workshops and seminars in addition to my photography.

I created a workshop back in 2001 (that is still running) called The Arizona Shootout (AZSO). It is a weekend long shooting event for both beginner and amateur photographers to learn to be better shooters as well as for seasoned pros to get new portfolio images.
