About Me


I was born in a small fishing village in Scotland. I came to the USA when he was 2, so sadly I don't have the cool accent. I grew up all over the over the country, mainly the south, and finally settled in the Pacific North-West where I finished high school and ultimately joined the US Marines.

After 4 years of anti-terrorism security and being a infantryman during Operations Desert Shield/Storm, I received a honorable discharge and rejoined the civilian world. My love affair with photography began in 1986 while in the "Vocational Photography" program at South Kitsap High School in Port Orchard, WA. I learned my craft on 35mm B&W film and moved into medium and large format film.  Since the digital I've retired my Nikon F100 & Bronica MF cameras for the Canon 5D MK III's and never looked back. 

I now call Portland Oregon my home. When not photographing weddings, maternity sessions or portraits, I work in a IT supporting a team of Mac users.
