Digital Photograph of marching brass band in the New Orleans French Quarter
French Quarter Street Music
I am a full-time freelance photographer, specializing in digital photography in New Orleans.
Two distinct chapters divide my career. During my editorial phase, I had thousands of images published worldwide and was the featured photographer of local publications such as "New Orleans Magazine," "Where Magazine," and "Louisiana Life Magazine."
The focus of my career as a strictly editorial photographer was changed nearly overnight by two great tectonic shifts - the digital camera and Hurricane Katrina.
The decline in New Orleans tourism and conventions after Katrina collapsed the demand for both stock and editorial services.
Digital Photography likewise put into motion market forces that threatened the careers of many editorial photographers, but also bore the seeds of my rebirth as a Fine Art Photographer.
Today I produce photographs destined more for the frame and less the printed page. Software and an imagination unbounded by the strict limits of the editorial world have allowed me to take photography to a new dimension that is still believable and true to my roots as a traditional photographer.
