Beginning photography outdoors in nature has been a life long focus for me. My education brought me into the studio, to both still life and portraiture. I maintain my passion for all three today as a fine art and freelence photographer.
A native of Washington State, I attended Art Center College of Design in California. Moving to New York City I became partner of Hing/Norton Inc., a commercial photography studio serving corporate clients in national advertising campaigns.
