Welcome! I'm a Houston, Texas-based photographer offering family, senior and pet portraiture, headshots, and sports photography.  I also travel to photograph landscapes and nightscapes for fine art prints.

I grew up in rural Louisiana, and developed a love of photography as a young boy shooting sports and lifestyle for the high school yearbook and taking photos of the sunrises over the Mississippi River levee from my home.  While in college, I was fortunate enough to shoot court-side during many of the Louisiana Tech Lady Techster games in their run-up to the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship in 1988.  Post-college, I moved to Houston to work in my degree's field of study.  As they say, I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!  I rekindled my love of photography in the early 2000's and have studied lighting, composition, and processing to improve my skills to take  high quality images that reflect my vision.

I'd love to provide  beautiful images of you and your loved ones.  If you're looking for prints,browse my collection of landscape and wildlife images, all of which are available for purchase.
