10+ years of photographing for ImagesAZ Magazine

I did the math. Ouch! The part of getting older, the years go by so fast. Lol But, it has been 10 years since I started with Shelly at ImagesAZ magazine! Over 40 covers and 60+ stories for her publication. I can’t say enough about the owner and publisher, Shelly Spence. She is a pillar...

Phoenix Art Museum’s new director, Jeremy Mikolajczak

When I arrived here from Chicago over 20 years ago, the first stop I made was the Phoenix Art Museum. I had spent my entire life up till that point studying the Art Institute of Chicago and I was eager to see what Phoenix had to offer. Present day, I get to photograph the new...

Arizona Family Portraits

Not sure I’ve ever photographed a family that defined Arizona life so much! Out on frontier land in the desert and the backdrop of Superstion mountains.

Senior Portraits in the deserts of Phoenix

I love when a Senior portraits turn more into a fashion shoot than some typical Senior pictures. I certainly am not that photographer for sure. If a Senior comes to me for their session, I know they mean business! They want the whole deal of professional makeup, fashion, lights, assistants and “oh my gosh, look...

Desert Family Portraits in Scottsdale

Creating a family shoot like this is one of my favorite experiences as an Artist.
