My career in photography started when I picked up a camera in 1982 and began photographing bands in Philadelphia's new music scene. What followed was stringer photojournalism work, a move to New York to study the art of photography at SVA where I earned a BFA. After traveling the country, working as a custom printer and photographer, I settled down in Minneapolis. In 1996, with the help of an artist-in-residency grant from Healthy Powderhorn, I started my freelance business.
Creating honest, compelling images and working with people is what drives my work. Assignments and collaboration with a variety of national and regional organizations, publications and individuals has given me the opportunity to explore the art of capturing moments, and how that translates into visual storytelling.
Assignment and Events work are based on a $125 per hour rate with additional charges for post production.
Weddings start at $1600 for 1/2 day and go up to $3000 for full day with an additional photographer.
