I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area all my life. I have been interested in photography since grade school. In high school I took graphic arts and photography classes. I have attended seminars by Joe McNally, David Hobby, Clay Blackmore, Bert Monroy, David Ziser and Jane Conner-Ziser. As well as reading anything I can get my hands on about photography and Photoshop. I recently became interested in HDR photography and have been shooting a lot landscape, architecture and automobile photography the original types of photography I was interested in before my kids were born (thats when people photography bacame very important to me or should I say my wife). I have been a semi-professional photographer since 1997. I have photographed weddings, parties and other events, as well as family, children, pets and lifestyle portraits.
