I started my photography career working for Ameen Howrani in Detroit during college. After finishing my degree in Photography at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at University of Michigan, I jumped into the marketing world working on photo campaigns for such clients as Abbott Labs, National Geographic, Lou Malnati's Pizza and Sears.
My signature editorial style is highly dramatic and has been sought for all areas of marketing and advertising. I photograph portraits, fashion, food and architecture and interiors. In 2008, my fashion photos headlined the exhibit "From Fantasy to Fashion" with fashion photography icon Stan Malinowski.
I've coupled my own experience with learned tricks from some of the best in the industry. That's why I have such a solid understanding of how to work with light whether my subject is food, product or people.

My art and design consulting skills are rooted in a deep appreciation for art history. I was previously the Director of Madron Gallery working with some of the most incredible private collections and museums in the country. My specialty is in American works from Impressionism up through Modern and post-WWII. I've handled everything from William Merritt Chase to Alexander Calder to Julian Stanczak.
I've curated and publicized numerous shows including the retrospective exhibit, "Robert Vonnoh, American Impressionist" the first of its kind in over 20 years at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. My research has been published in Antiques & Fine Art Magazine as well as various exhibition catalogues. I finished my First Year studies at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and completed my BFA at the University of Michigan Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.
