My Philosophy... I'm a friendly, patient perfectionist who believes in quality, honesty and service. I specialize in creating beautiful images of people for any and all occasions with a dedication to your complete satisfaction. It's my nature to go that "extra mile" for you. All at a price that's reasonable and affordable by most clients standards. I believe you can trust your photographic memories to me.
About Me~ I have been serving the Twin Cities Metro area for over 25 years, working independently and as a freelancer, providing high quality photographic and video services. My passion for photography goes back to when I was 12 years old.
I had joined a photography club in 7th grade and never got over the excitement over seeing photos develop before my eyes. After graduating from high School (Thomas Jefferson Bloomington) I joined the U.S. Navy as a Photographer attached to the Atlantic Feet Audio Visual Command's Combat Camera Group where I photographed Nationally and Abroad on assignments involving numerous ships; aircraft carriers; jet aircraft-A6's; helicopters and Navy shore stations. I was trained in photojournalism, motion picture-film and videography. After my full time duty commitment was completed, I served as a Navy Reservist working in Navy Intelligence until 1983.
I received my college degree using the G.I. Bill and have worked not only as a Photographer but as a (Video) Photojournalist for Network TV news and Local TV news (including Kare 11 when it was WTCN 11). I've been self-employed since 1984 enjoying the pleasure of photographing people in a variety of settings and activities - capturing the human personality is my favorite subject.
After 30 years of photographing, I feel grateful that my profession is still my passion (other than my wife).
Other than photography, my next favorite hobby is Scuba Diving which I enjoy doing with my wife Nancy. She's been a certified scuba diver since 1999 and I since 1977.
The two people I consider my greatest heroes are my parents, Jennie and Jorgen. Now in their 80's, they have provided me with the greatest foundation of love and support that anyone could ask for.
