The Original Spuds McKenzie
I have been a commercial photographer, videographer and director for more than 30 years. I studied film as well as still photography and I can communicate with editors and audio engineers clearly and comfortably. And I've had long-term relationships with clients large and small.
I have a team of stylists, talent and techies that allows me to handle your project from concept to completion. Our clients benefit from our team approach and cooperative style that helps us create images that not only convey your message but involve your audience's sense of wonder and draw them in.
I work in and around Omaha, Nebraska, and on location around the U.S.
Capturing Beauty & Art with My Lens
In this TED Talk, Graphic Designer Marian Bantjes perfectly sums up something I've become conscious of in the last few years. For at least the first two-thirds of my career, I worked within the framework of being handed a proposed layout and solving the problems required to refine, polish and create the requested image. Now I find that as my work follows my heart and my interests, with the guidance of my ego, to create work that is mutually beneficial to myself and my client. Now, for many this is heresy, as Bantjes says in her talk. The photographer’s ego is not supposed to be involved in their commercial work. But I find that for myself, without exception, the more I deal with the work as something of my own, as something that is personal, the more successful it is as something that's compelling, interesting and sustaining.
