Over 13+ years in business and years of passionate learning before that... I can tell you that photography is far more than "having a great eye".

I've been fortunate enough in my career to have won multiple international awards, work with both film and digital, photograph everyone from celebrities to my children (who think they're celebrities), and travel the world to photograph people.

There have been people and things that have encouraged and helped me and our team along the way. This page is a resource of a few of those things to help you on yours.

My top resources for photographers and aspiring entrepreneurs

Owning a business can be more than you bargained for.

For most of us the idea of becoming a photographer, florist, or entrepreneur of the creative kind begins with the idea of service. We love the idea of creating, building, and loving people. But rarely do we get really excited about systematizing a small business and getting MBA level marketing expertise... and yet, that can be what's require to run more than a side hustle. Below you'll find some of my top resources for photographers and those who are trying to serve others well while running a successful business.
