Photography has been a lifelong passion for me. As my journey continues, I enjoy working with students and clients on making great images and helping them to achieve their artistic vision. I love to share the tips and tricks that I have learned along the way as both a professional photographer, but also as a teacher and as a student of light.

Experienced photographer that has worked professionally in many areas including travel, fine-art, news, and sports action. I have extensive darkroom experience in both B&W and color and have transitioned those skills to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in the digital post-processing world. Many of my images have been printed in various publications, on many websites, and in art gallery exhibits. I teach beginner to advanced students on how to take and process great images in private tutor sessions, group lessons, and on workshop field trips. I also custom print images, and scan and retouch/restore old photographs and negatives.

Nick was awesome. Helped me choose the proper camera settings to optimize conditions and maximize the quality of the image. Educated me on controlling settings for various light conditions and depth of field. Very helpful and well worth the drive. I will definitely call on him again to fine tune what I've learned once I have a chance to practice.

I worked as a celebrity photographer for Splash News Agency ,something I consider to be top paying as far as street photography go. You must know your camera or could miss the money shot. After studying photography and receiving my BFA I found out that I had an imagination for conceptual photography and an eye for candid shots. I incorporate photography into my fine art paintings. I’ve traveled the world teaching kids to use there eyes .(The Venice Dream Team) and ( See it to be it) were two organizations I’ve worked with teaching photography. Nikon has been my choice of equipment since the 70s,yes I do know film ,darkrooms and papers as well as digital. My self I am a hands on learner and I believe a teacher should have patience and that people learn differently. I’m a great listener
