ABOUT

Witnessing our depth of being, this is my call to the portrait.

I shoot for images that resonate True. 

2019 marks my 31st year as a professional photographer of people. I photograph from a humanistic sensibility, inspired to capture rich soul-filled images. No matter whom I have the privilege to witness, age, color, gender, sexual orientation, whatever, I am interested in a deeper light that knows no category.

 

Career Points of Interest

Many moons ago, I was awarded Picture Story of the Year’s Second Place by the Maine Press Association. This was for images of then-President George Bush Sr. A few years later the angels of the universe dropped me into the company of a different leader, assisting a portrait of the Dalai Lama atop his roof in Dharamsala, India. For many years I was graciously shown the way to make this work a living, apprenticing with fine art photographers Carl Hyatt, Mel Curtis and Phil Borges. And again, granted great fortune with Jesuit Father Patrick Twohy’s invitation to photograph members of the Salishan Tribes for his poetic book “Beginnings“. I was the recipient of the Seattle Artist Trust GAP grant which afforded my creating a show of my India images. Some of that work is represented by Asia Image Group. The past two decades I’ve been fully engaged with my Seattle portrait clientele. And most recently have focused back to my first love, the Individual Portrait, for its intimate depth of expression.
