Hire me!

I’ve had an eye for capturing the essence of a scene or special event for decades.  For 10+ years I’ve been honing my skills with the best equipment, continuously improving to bring these memories to life, sharing with friends, family, acquaintances, and customers.  You’ll always find me armed with some of the best Nikon gear, Nikkor lenses, Sekonic light-meters, Impact LiteTrek 4.0 Studio lights, Pocket-wizards, and more to get the job done.

IMG_0120I’ve been recruited as the pro-photographer in a number of weddings, pre-weddings, engagement ceremonies, senior portraits, commercial/business portraits, sporting events, and off-road racing action.  IMG_0098I’ve been counted on to produce journalistic style photography for many live events such as Jeep 4-wheeling adventures, camping & hiking, 4-Wheel 2-Heal charity events, German-American Oktoberfest parties, Carnival, and the long-time media contributor for Internet Brands site JK-Forum.

IMG_0009The details here show examples of how some pricing IMG_0116can be set up to make a great fit for investing in the time and expertise needed to get the results you want.  My goal is to keep this simple so you know what to expect, and offer flexibility to arrange just what you need.

Keep in mind, some projects are more suited to plan session-fees for an event to cover professional consultation, planning, organizing, and time spent before during and after to prepare, edit, and develop images.  Other projects might require little or no session-fees, with the expectation that photo packages or prints will be purchased for the event.

I welcome you to consider these or contact me with your specific ideas using the form further below.IMG_9959
