Secrets St. James Hotel, Montego Bay Jamaica 2012

After all these years, I still love what I do.

I’ve been shooting since 1983, with the better part of that time spent in the commercial arena. I was fortunate to have worked with many wonderful photographers who were willing to share their “street smarts” on the business of photography as well as tips they learned from years of shooting.

One thing that most photographers strive for is the definition of their “look”. That element that makes a shot yours and easily recognizable to the rest of the world as an Eric Meola, Robert Mapplethorp, or one of the other masters whose work represents their unique style and has helped define their careers.

We all strive for perfection in our visions. We study and experiment and test to get closer to the point where we can say “man, that is a great shot!” But no matter how close we get, there will always be something that can be changed or improved, and that is why we keep trying.
