I’ve been a photographer and filmmaker ever since I got my first camera and darkroom at age 10 and my first Super 8 motion picture camera, age 11. My father was a pianist and my mother an artist in oil and sculpture, so I learned to appreciate beautiful sounds and images from the day I was born.
After graduation from college, I started my teaching career – Graphic Arts/Photography and later Communication Systems. Also at this time I started photographing weddings professionally - shooting as many as 50 ceremonies a year. This deep immersion in the wedding photography business taught me the importance of reliability and professionalism. Not to mention a firm grasp of the technical aspects of image-making.
When digital video came along, I switched from still photography to video. I find there is more opportunity for creativity and story telling with moving images and audio.
Film-making is part technology, part understanding people, and part magic and art. I love my job. Check out my wedding video website.
