Photographia


Slide Show

(Portfolio Samples of My Photography and Photoshop Work)

The work that I do with Photoshop is illustrative in nature. I have been teaching a course in Adobe compositing techniques at the University of Miami now for three years now, and have am an expert in editorial approaches to photographic imagery. I would not describe myself as a photographer, though I do produce excellent candid shots in business and casual environments. In original photography, I specialize in a behind-the-scenes approach to people on location, but my real talent is in photo illustration and the enhancement of your existing current and archival photos. I trained as a field videographer and am attentive to natural lighting and relaxed environments and my extensive work in journalism as a creative director along with graduate study in metaphor and symbolism has made me quick to find the most effective way to communicate your written content visually. (I am also skilled in video editing and post-production including basic animation using After Effects see my AudioVisual page for details).
