I grew up as a Marine Corps brat and then served in the U.S. Coast Guard for a few years. I decided I would give the “real world” a try and became a police officer in 1996. I recently retired from law enforcement after eighteen years of serving the public. I picked up my first 35mm SLR camera in mid 1990’s and had my first taste as a “wedding photographer.” I will say that weddings are definitely not my thing! I then got into doing mostly wildlife photography and the occasional family session in 2006. Since then, I have acquired a strong passion for many facets of photography, but I have found that my skills are strongest in real estate, product, headshots, events and commercial photography.
