I am a photographer who enjoys finding and shooting images that have the fewest possible elements to create timeless themes and concepts. My images are sold through Arcangel Images, one of the leading photo libraries for the book publishing industry. I am published internationally with hundreds of covers throughout the world.

Rather than setting up in a studio, I continually search for that detail that will tell a unique story. Shooting exclusively for book covers has trained my eye to look for images that immediately convey a concept, feeling or story. I teach those same ideas at the Bryan Peterson School of Photography, a leading online photography education source.

I shoot in RAW with a Canon 7D and use the 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens, the 70-200mm f/4L IS USM AF lens and the EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. Most of my photographs are created using natural light.

I live in Chicago with my wonderfully supportive husband, my beautiful daughter and very needy mini poodle. When not shooting photography, I enjoy reading, running and experiencing all that Chicago has to offer.
