about

A $250 Minolta film SLR when I was in 8th grade, that's where it started. Fully automatic, but at least I could change lenses. Two years later I got a Minolta Maxxum 7, then a Nikon D70 and so on. I have been interested in the art for 2/3 of my life, and I became a professional wedding/portrait photographer in 2008 when I opened my own business. I ran it while also working full time as a graphic designer and going to school for my masters. Now I still shoot the occasional wedding and portrait, but I devote the bulk of my time to teaching students about various forms of photography. They include portraits, running a business, landscape, macro, light painting, architecture (though I'm not great at it), commercial, product/food and sports. My strength (if I have one) is probably with portraits and weddings, but I love exploring all avenues of photography. I'm married with 2 children, a boy and a little girl (born on Valentines Day). They are currently (2015) 7 (boy) and 2 (girl). They are both willing and engaging subjects for me to constantly engage with. I also have a wealth of subjects and opportunities with my students at school. At Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, KS we have a Graphic Communications degree that is rooted in technology, not art. Our students interested in photography will pursue a Digital Media emphasis. We also have a photojournalism program and art of photography program on campus. I have been lucky to have a great relationship with an area donor that has made significant donations to the photography program. Because of that we have a wealth of equipment that is a joy to use and gives our students some interesting tools to work with. I am interested heavily in Creative Commons and Copyright, and I pursue research in these areas. If you have an interest in those areas, please contact me!
