What I do

I’ve been accused of being off my kilter…a little “out in left field”, A few fries short of a Happy Meal. Some folks think I’m off my rocker for wanting to do so much. Photography, Video production, Voice acting, Graphic design, and a host of other things. 

I do these things because I’m passionate about them. It’s possible to be good at more than one thing. So, since I have a whole bunch of years doing each of these things at various points in  my life, why not keep doing them?  

Here is a list of the services I provide:

Commercial Photography – 

This really encompasses many styles of photography. My degrees are in Portraiture. I’m also a Foodie, so I not only love to cook, but I like to photograph what I cook. It allows be to combine two loves into one.

Commercial Photography allows me to share what I do with others. After all, photography is storytelling, only with photos. Those that know me “get it” when I say that I love to tell stories. So, I do it with a camera. I’ll take a photo of just about anything. I’ve done quite a bit of editing to get this portfolio down to a reasonable size. As you will see, it includes Food, Real Estate, Lifestyle Photography, Portraiture. Branding, and Still-life. It’s an odd mix of images, but I love every 1/125th of a second of it…(Commercial Portfolio & Food Portfolio.)

Portrait Photography –

There’s nothing more interesting than us humans. We start as babies, and if we’re lucky, we end up as old-people. What’s really cool is getting to capture and preserve people at these different points in their lives and preserve them for future generations. Every time I look up at my living room wall and see my Great Grandparents Thomas & Effie Archibald, I really wish I knew more about them. What were they like? What hobbies did they have? Did they have pets? I’ll never know some of these things. But I do know that I have the coolest job on the planet capturing todays stories for the Grandkids and even the Great Grandkids of the future. I truely treasure my little Canon time machine that allows me to do this. (Portrait Portfolio) (More about Portrait Sessions and what to expect)

Video Production –

I started my very first job at the age of 15 at the local TV Station in Bend, Oregon. I was in heaven! I stood behind a camera every evening between 5 & 6pm. I eventually moved onto Radio Broadcasting (yes, backwards I know), After ten years of radio moved across the country and went back into television. Isn’t video another form of storytelling?…I thought so. (Video Production Services)

Photography Classes –

I think I mentioned before that I love to share.  This is the sharing part. (Photography Classes) Choose from Five different photography styles. These one-hour classes can be taught on Zoom, or in-person. $45 per person, per class.

Photo Repair and Restoration –

What I was saying about the wonder of sharing photos between generations make this service something beyond just a service. I LOVE repairing and restoring vintage photos. I figured I have the Photoshop experience, the tools, the love of Geneology….and as it turns out, the passion repairing old photos. Check out these before and after examples.

 Voice Acting –

All those years in radio might be worth more that that old box of cassette tapes in the garage. (Voiceover website – www.Minneapolis-Voice.com)

…Did I mention that I’ve taken up scrapbooking?  Nevermind – for another day, and another website.
