I help my clients preserve the memories of the important times in their lives.
My desire is to create excellent portraits of people that they will cherish for a lifetime.
I am patient, kind and understanding.
I view my relationships with my clients as collaborative and dynamic.
I have more than 25 years of experience when it comes to photography.
This means you can have peace knowing your pictures will turn out fantastic!
I began really getting interested in photography in 1988 when I was a high school exchange student to Australia.
I loved taking pictures of all the places I was visiting.
I am an International Freelance Photographer and
a member of Professional Photographers of America.
Notable women I have photographed include Barbara Bush, Laura Bush,
and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York.
I photographed my first wedding in 1992, and have photographed over 80 weddings since then.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale with a degree in Applied Photography,
and I was awarded the highest honor, Portfolio of the Year.
I was awarded the Homeland Defense Award in 2008 by the Nebraska National Guard
for exemplary photographic coverage of troop homecoming ceremonies.
I have been the official photographer for BNSF Holiday Express since 2009.
Other Commercial Photography clients include:
The University of Nebraska Foundation
The Nebraska Beef Council

The Buffalo County Fairgrounds
My wife, Manuela, is from Iquitos, Peru, in South America.
Iquitos is a city in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest.
We met when I went to photograph the Amazon Jungle for my book "La Selva" in 2009.
We got married and she immigrated here in 2011.
I can speak Spanish.
Because I lived many places and experienced different cultures I feel I can connect with almost anyone.
In turn, my clients are relaxed around me and this translates to more genuine portraits.
I'm energetic and enthusiastic!
