I am a commercial still life photographer who started out as a graphic designer and steadily became more interested in photography the more I got into it. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching photography since 1992 at the college level. Through teaching, I have found that my understanding of art has deepened exponentially. Ironically, I have also probably learned more from my students over the years than they have from me. It’s definitely been a win-win situation.
I have had the good fortune to have worked with some of the best art directors, designers, and crews around; they have helped shaped my work and my methods of approaching visual problems. Of one thing I am certain, art cannot happen in a vacuum. Without the encouragement and honest critique of colleagues, clients, and publishers, much of my photographic work would not have been half as good or relevant as it is.
