I’m a photographer and graphic designer living in Montgomery, Alabama with my beautiful wife and three kids. I currently run a small photography and design business, where I work with clients such as Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitor Bureau, Alabama Department of Archives and History, Montgomery Visitor Guide, The River Region United Way, Saint James School, The YMCA, Auburn University Montgomery, Volunteers of America, Know the Community, Alabama Living, Montgomery Business Journal, Wells Fargo & Co., Partners Realty, The Shoppes at EastChase and many more.
In the past, I worked for a publisher, designing for their many local and international magazines. Over the years, I’ve worked for clients as big as Saks Fifth Avenue and as small as your mom and pop coffee shop on the corner.
Long before graduating with a degree in Graphic Design, I was fascinated with art, design and technology. My degree was simply an attempt to legitimize my passions, and it has led me to many opportunities. My photography and designs have been published in dozens of local, national and international publications, as well as, countless promotional materials, online campaigns and websites.
Production Assistant, Graphic Designer, Digital Systems Consultant, Technical Art Director, Creative Art Director, Web Designer, Producer, Photojournalist, Commercial Photographer — I’ve been called just about everything. And today I find myself wearing many different hats all at once. If you’ve ever been a business owner, you understand. Deep down I’m a photographer and graphic designer… a true right-brain creative who is inspired by the world around him.
Web Design, Database Management, SEO—they are all skills I have at my disposal, but my passion lies in photography, typography and traditional methods of art & design. I choose my jobs very selectively while not forgetting those who helped me along the way.
Why am I telling you all of this?
Because I find it comforting to know something about those I work with. I understand that for a job to be performed well and communication to be at its best—a relationship must be formed. I want you to understand where I’m coming from. To know I have a family and have experienced the responsibility of raising children.
Anyone can develop the skills necessary to build a website or to layout an article in a magazine. Marketing graduates can guide you to content for your next ad, Editors can fill your pages. Printers can even combine these materials to the point of final publishing, but it takes a designer to put it all together in such a way that it reaches your target audience and communicates the idea you know it was meant for. It takes a professional photographer to capture just the right expressions and to make your content stand out from the rest.
