It all started at Northern Arizona University where I studied public relations....photography was all part of the game so I closed up our extra bathroom and spent many nights developing film and making prints....yep "film". Then came the fun when I enrolled in several classes at Napa Valley College and Santa Rosa Junior College...earned a Training Certificate in Adobe Photoshop...lot of work, but worth it. I truly wanted to procure my masters in public relations...but the Good Lord had other plans for me....I'm also a writer and staff photographer for Flagstaff Business News (FBN).
My experience, my passion, my genuine love for people, pets, the world around me. Two First Place Awards and several "best of's".....My Faith in God, Jesus Christ, is the foundation of my life, my work, my reason for the Hope I have. I am truly blessed.
Not only have I invested time in training, education and certification in Adobe Photoshop....but my equipment is current and specialized....that alone is a big deal and makes a huge difference in professional photography....lenses, lenses, lenses! Plus, I know how to work and manage people....this is so important with large groups and events such as weddings.
It takes a lot to be a professional photographer....not only do I pay my taxes but I'm registered with the city and state of Arizona. I am also a member of Professional Photographers Association (PPA)
My reviews have been posted on Google and YELP.....but I have references available from Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, Williams and NAPA....
