My Experience

Many clients are interested in my accomplishments and work history. I was a staff photographer at a two major companies for combined over 15 years. As you can see from my online portfolio, I have significant experience shooting the kind of photos you’re seeking, for a variety of companies in your industry.”

My Knowledge

Although there are several photographers in the tri state area, make sure that the photographer you hire is aware of your needs and how to obtain your vision without the need to "hold their hand". I have photographed most places in Fort Wayne at one point or another and know what will be needed to get the shot done right the first time.

My Gear

It seems that everybody that has a camera today claim to be a photographer. One this you should consider when hiring one is the gear that they are using. Most consumer cameras do very well in well lit environments such as outdoors on a sunny day. But can their cameras and skills handle a low light room such as your wedding, without the need for a flash? Do they now how to create a mood with their cameras that will capture the true look you are wanting? Just because you have a camera, it does not mean that you are a photographer.
