WORKSHOPS


Do you want me to hold a workshop at your school, gallery, or photography group? They're a lot of fun, with an incredible amount of knowledge packed in as we travel through a range of topics such as conceptualizing and brain mapping, practical lighting compared to lighting for effects, learning how to craft an image while keeping your storyboards in mind, and also looking ahead to how everything works together with post-production. Lots of post-production advice and the clearest, smartest ways I know of for how to do it.

ABOUT



Growing up, I turned to my imagination for activity. This playful, creative approach to life extended to my adulthood, where it took form in photographic storytelling. Creating what I consider photographs made through a smirking camera, my personal work has appeared throughout the world in numerous group and solo exhibitions, publications, and online media.


Based in Burlington, Vermont, I am active as an educator each year at the Maine Media Workshops, and special lecture events at schools and galleries across the country. In addition I actively seek out commercial opportunities to transform client ideas into creative realities, from the unique portrait to the elaborately constructed narrative. I am also available for retouching services.


Please contact me for scheduling and rates.
