I started shooting film in the 1980's, mostly glamour and events. These days I still shoot events (the Old Sacramento jazz festival, the Oregon Country Fair, various horse shows) senior photo portfolios, and photos for real estate promotional materials.
I most enjoy photographing people doing something they enjoy, whether it's playing music, riding horses and other activities, and as such I tend to be drawn to fairs, festivals, and other shows. I do little studio work, preferring to shoot in natural light. The Pacific Northwest provides a wide variety of backdrops.
The horse show assignments have been the most challenging so far. The combination of action, low light, wide depth of field, and no flash require interesting solutions.
My more "artistic" photos can be found at nikonimages.com and ag2si.com.
