A lot of people pick up a fancy camera and call themselves photographers. I’m not one of those people. I picked up a really cheap starter camera and called myself a photographer a bazillion years ago. Luckily, I’ve upgraded my equipment since then.

If you’re looking for a photographer who is an artiste, then you should probably keep clicking along. I’m the guy who’s always making corny jokes to get that certain expression, who will contort himself into positions usually reserved for people whose last name is Wallenda, and wants everybody to have as good a time as I’m having. Except maybe for funerals. And tax audits. But who really photographs those, anyway?

My specialty is action – sports, not the illegal kinds you’re thinking of. I’m also pretty good at senior portraits, parties, and candids. Especially candids. But not really landscapes. It’s hard to make a mountain laugh. Almost as hard as making a 17-year old laugh. Almost.

I shoot more of a photojournalistic style than dreamy, arty photos. It helps prevent people from looking at the pictures years later and asking, “Was that photographer drunk?” If that’s what you’re going for, it’s easier to give Uncle Bob an iPhone and tell him to go to town.

Having pictures taken doesn’t have to be torture. I can prove it to you.
