Photographer seeks freelance opportunities.
I love what I do. Providing gorgeous images to tell your story is my passion. I especially enjoy working with clients who are deeply connected with what they do.

I take great joy in helping to visually share the details of, for example, running an organic farm, keeping bees, or hand-crafting cheese. My clients include bakers, soap makers, artists, gardeners, café owners, and folks developing small businesses. Together we have taken the telling of their stories to another level by presenting images that express what makes them (and their business and products) unique.

Have you found yourself in need of a really good image for an article, your website, a blog post, an application for a show, or simply to explain you and your product? Perhaps you do not have the time or skill to take the photos and then crop and manipulate them into just what you need? You may have thought to yourself, wow – a library of images would be really useful for my work right now.

This is where I come in! I want to help
As a matter of fact I REALLY want to be part of what you are doing.

Great idea - right? Yet you hesitate because hiring a photographer isn’t something you planned or budgeted for. Not to worry. While I don’t work for free I am completely willing to barter. Cash for my time and effort and gas money are all part of a negotiation. Fresh eggs make me very happy. I have the freedom and flexibility to immerse myself into your project. Not all photographers can say that.
