One of the questions I frequently receive through my website relates to how I’ve managed a to create a successful career with my photography. People are usually a little surprised by my answer – that photography is essentially a “hobby” for me. It’s not my full-time job. I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer for about 10 years – designing anything from logos to brochures to websites. It’s how I spend 99% of my time during the work week. Despite the fun and success I enjoy with photography, I wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, I’m very fortunate to be able to say that I am working my dream job. The creative diversity is hard to beat. More importantly, the spoils from my graphic design endeavors support my growing photography addiction.

Lately, I’m having a lot of fun designing websites for other photographers. I’ve partnered with a good friend of mine (and great photographer), Jack Brauer, in creating WideRange Galleries. It’s a relatively new collaboration, which combines Jack’s wonderful website gallery software and my creative design skills. We’ve been at it for a little over a year now. While I’ve had a lot of fun designing my own websites over the years, it’s been even more rewarding to create fresh websites for other artists. I thought I would take a moment to share some of our recent work, and allow you to enjoy the work of other photographers …
