Commercial advertising product and fashion photography are what pays the bills, but my personal work is what drives my creativity, fuels my passion and helps me to constantly be learning and improving my skills as a photographer. Having a great photography studio to work out of has certainly aided in that quest. It's enabled me to take on projects I otherwise wouldn't be able to do. My American Pinups and Vintage Motorcycle portfolios are two such projects. Other portfolios in this section include work I've done over the years as my life unfolded starting with "Sunburst Communities" which documents my seven years living on a commune from age 22 to 29. My "Cattle Ranching" portfolio was a project I spent ten years on documenting the last of the working cattle ranches in Santa Barbara county and my "Landscape" portfolio represents my love for the great outdoors and our incredible National Parks system we have here in America.
