I'm a photo educator and landscape photographer based in San Diego, California. Good natured, secretly shy, and much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. If you're visiting San Diego and want to meet up for some 1-on-1 coaching, contact me. You can also join one of my workshops, too.
I grew up on the beaches of New Jersey, switched coasts in the mid 1990s, and have called San Diego, California home ever since. I love travel. I have visited 32 countries across 5 continents, some places multiple times. Travel was easier in my "BC" years (Before Children), but is picking up again as my kids are getting older.
I don't swear by my gear. For the curious, I'm currently shooting with a Sony A7R and was a Nikon D7000 shooter prior to the switch to Sony. I use a Really Right Stuff tripod (read my review) and Formatt-Hitech filters (watch my video on filters). I turn to my iPhone when scouting and for shooting backgrounds (usually whenever I see interesting clouds). See my feature on Shotkit for the full contents of my camera bag.
I have produced several photography products, most recently Take 5: Luminar and ON1 Photo RAW Essentials. I also have a complete course on Lightroom Asset Management and Texture Blending in ON1 Layers. Check out the store for more and don't forget to subscribe to my mailing list for immediate access to exclusive content and some free photo goodies, too!
In addition to this website, I'm active a variety of social media sites. Look me up!
