Few Words About Myself Nice to Meet You
I'm a professional photographer who owned a complete portrait studio,which included printing lab,cameras and accessories,custom framing and ready-made frames. I downsized my business when I moved from Petrolia to Essex, Ontario. Working now as a free-lance photographer has opened up even more possibilities in my life allowing me to photograph "on location" people, families, pets and wild life. I hope you will enjoy my short portfolio. Looking forward to working with you to create something great together!
Through the lens of my full frame digital camera, the world looks different and I would like to show you the creative difference. I learned photography as a Police Crime Scene Photographer and went on to join the Professional Photographers of America where I took numerous courses on portrait, lighting and posing photography. At this point in my life, with many years experience in both film and digital photography techniques, I have advanced my skills. A continuing experience awaits.
From May to Thanksgiving, I enjoy summers in Ipperwash, a stones throw from Forest Ontario. Once I return to home base in Essex, I prepare to head out on winter travels by mid November, returning in March each year. This allows a world of possible photography explorations. I am available for photography, family, pet, wedding or commercial from mid May till the end of October in southern Ontario.
How does this Magic Happen
Here I like to show you photo processing. Sometimes you can not see the end result without direct comparsion. So I'll show you a photo before and after processing, where I did re-touch the photo, removed background noise and improved color ambience.
