Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. We had a darkroom at our home when I was young, and it was in that small corner of our basement where I learned the fundamentals. Through high school and college I worked as a photographer at The Punxsutawney Spirit newspaper, and I later worked with a Western Pennsylvania tourist promotion agency to provide photos for brochures and other publications.
In recent years my photos have appeared in dozens of newspapers, web sites and magazines around the world. I am frequently called upon as a freelance photographer for The Punxsutawney Spirit, the Beaver County Times, and Reuters news agency.
A shot of mine was once featured in an advertisement for Chevy, which appeared in USA Today, Sports Illustrated and as a full-page ad in the program for the 2006 Major League All-Star Game. Other photos of mine have also been featured in numerous children's books and other publications around the globe.
I am available for freelance photography, including weddings and senior and family portraits. Please use the Contact page to inquire about available dates. I'll look forward to hearing from you!
