    I classify myself as a " visionary photographer" for various reasons.   I'm a freelance photographer based in Atlanta; but will travel!

      Some cool, fast facts about me:: 

    :: My aim is to display a series of events in every photograph I take.Fascinating, realistic subjects that are

      bold, dynamic,  and uniqueare what inspires me the most. Through my photography I want the viewer to

      see a story within and make a connection with the subject, if only for a brief moment. 

    :: My focus in photography is to “allow yourmind, body & soul to imagine” the possiblities! 

    :: My aim is to capture photos that have "meaning." ...It Is, What It Is!

    :: My niche is still photography;  but my other fave genres include:  urban/street, landscape, travel, fine art,

      abstract, and more. 

    :: I  also specialize in location portraiture. While most of my work is done in the freelance industry, I'll shoot

      just about anything!

    :: I have a understanding of marketing, copyright, business law, contracts and finance; with a paralegal

      background.

    :: Also have an intermediate proficiency (budding advanced) level with McIntosh Apple Computers and digital

      videography. 

    :: Also enjoy providing graphic designs/ productions for company  needing: brochures, newsletters,

    :: Resilience is my mantra.............I'll never give up; until I get the job done!
