Photography Workshops

I believe photography is something that can be learned and that you can develop photographic talent to realize the vision in your imagination. Photography allows you to release your creativity and develop the curiosity to explore our world. I also believe that photographic instruction is essential for getting the most out of photography. With instruction, you will gain confidence, learn to make more effective photos and shortcut the learning process.

Fine Art Photography

My award-winning photography graces the walls of many homes and businesses. I offer three different media: prints, fine art canvas and metal. You’ll find a small section of my image catalog in my online store.

Magazine and Commercial Photography

My photography appears in magazines and my commercial work ranges from real estate and property photography to food and product photography. I also have a large stock photography catalog of the Lake Superior area.

Outdoor and Vacation Portraits

A growing trend in photography is vacation portraits. When you’re in the the Grand Marais area, the northwoods and north shore provide the best backdrops for your family portraits, couple portraits and vacation portraits. My style feels organic, natural, outdoorsy and I bring my adventure magazine style to portraits. Customers have said that I’m able to capture the spirit in my images. Remember your time in Grand Marais with professional vacation portraits.
