These photo shoots have included activities from parties, PR events, work for lawyers to churches and weddings. I have photographed large and small groups in many settings, for example, Choirs and Dance groups. I am very diverse and deal well with all ages and classes of people in both public and or private settings. I have produced and command my own personal website which I created with Front Page Design. Some examples of my photography work can be found on the web at the URL address below:
