I have been a professional photographer since 2005 when I started my aerial photography business, a MetroAir Photo LLC in Maryland. In 2010 I moved to Central Ohio and while I continued to service my clients in Maryland I began to expand my geographic scope. I’ve been doing wetplate since taking John Coffer’s class in 2015 and later that year I took Michael Rhodes phoenix case making class.
Two years later I purchased Michael’s company, Modern Day Antique and I have been continuing the work or creating reproduction mid 19th century photo cases and modern interpretations. Since then I have expanded my offerings to range from images taken with natural light to artificial light with strobes in my photo studio I built with the help of my father in law in the fall of 2017.
I am interested in promoting photography that emphasizes creativity regardless of technology. Today we have the privilege to mix the techniques of the past with the technology of every era that followed. I believe in the choice of the artist to pick the best tools to accomplish his or her vision. It is fine to be a purist or be modern or any blend in between, we just need more art that speaks to people and heightens their human experience.
