Art Consultants: Currently I provide files for you to print to your specs thru an FTP upload. I am not providing printed images. I can size and make requested adjustments to the images for your job. For access to all images, sizes and prices please call or email me. I have a special DROPBOX folder just for you!
Children’s Portraits: Since 1995 I have been photographing children in natural environments capturing all their magic and mystery as they explore the world around them. I find creative inspiration in children as they live free in fantasy and wonder which makes for beautiful images, capturing them at a time in their life when they change so very fast.
I offer sessions throughout the United States. I travel to your town for a portrait weekend in your community. A session takes place outdoors at your home, a favorite park or garden for about an hour. I photograph digitally and give you all the files with full reproduction rights for you to add your creative touch to printing through online labs.
Please contact me for locations, dates and prices.
Artist Statement: After years of shooting with traditional 35mm cameras, I began experimenting with the Holga, and soon discovered that it’s lightweight, larger format and ethereal image quality offered me a new freedom in my work. The moment my first successful Holga image came out of the processor, I felt a lump in my throat and I knew I had found my voice, I knew something special was happening. A wondrous result that transcended beyond merely “recording“ an image. Its lens became a portal and revealed a beautiful new way of seeing.
My inspiration comes to me through my surroundings, my daily wanderings through meadows, gardens and forests. My work is intensely personal, as nature is my sanctuary and I have never let go of my child-like wonder for it. Here I am captivated by the unexpected details and subtle intricacies, the tiny worlds that are much overlooked in our daily routines. But when we pause, there is vibrant life all around us in the smallest of spaces, an entire universe of enchantment and mystery. It is through my photography I find that I am best able to express the respect and fascination I feel for the natural world as the Holga enables me to show what I feel when I’m in nature, not just what I see.
