There is a song from an album called Lightdance. A compilation of electronic new age music from the late 80's produced by Higher Octave Music. One song in particular "Oregon Hills" really should be the background music for one of your storm videos!

I see the grasslands around Sonoita are already greening up. Looks like a good season so far.

Is that all? Rain and hail? I've been in far worse storms and lived through it.

Introduction

group.as

I love taking pictures… making pictures. Finding pictures in anything and everything. I’m self-taught and still learning which probably explains my unquenchable desire to grow and grow and grow.

I love candid photography. And I love merging that style with portrait photography. I was inspired years ago when my wife and I had an anniversary photoshoot, and I was blown away by how simple, yet powerful, the candid portrait can be. The style is sometimes called photojournalistic or journalistic portraiture. Whatever you call it, that’s how I shoot it. Kids, babies, teens, engagements, families, whatever the occasion, I love capturing those special moments for people where they can let their personalities and feelings shine through and create a keepsake that will last forever.

I love event photography. The same passion I have for candid pictures drives the fun I have shooting a birthday party, a baby shower, a church get-together, anything where people are gathered for a purpose. The images you capture at moments like these feel more real than almost anything else I photograph.

I love weather photography, landscape pictures and anything else that strikes me as being worthy of a shutter snap. There is no limit the things I find interesting. I’ve photographed flowers, buildings, mailboxes and a million other odds and ends. But when it comes to storms and weather, I have a deep desire to capture nature in all of its raw power and glory. After living here in Arizona my entire life, I’ve suddenly gone through a re-awakening when it comes to what’s around me. Arizona offers an amazing venue for lightning and summer thunderstorms. We also have an endless supply of natural beauty from the dry, desert floors to the snowy peaks of the northern areas.  This state is gorgeous.

That’s who I am. I would love to get to know who you are. If you are interested in using me for your photography needs, just contact me. You can use the form below, it’s quick and painless!
