Life has to have passion. I can’t imagine waking up every morning and not being able to interact with my passions. There are a few – my children, business, photography, dogs and peanut butter to name a handful. Oh, and I do enjoy a glass of old Italian white wine at the end of the day. When my children went off to post-secondary education I picked up a camera, became acquainted with digital photography and fell in love. There are so many things to aim a camera at and, like many photographers, I shoot a variety of things like music, family pets and commercial projects. My real photographic passion is two-fold: First, headshots and this requires specific study to get it right and continued study to stay current. Since 2012 I’ve been studying with Peter Hurley, the world’s foremost headshot photographer, and interacting on a daily basis with PH2Pro, the headshot community he created. There is no better feeling than creating an image of a client that shows the world the real person. A real deal headshot shows the person’s heart and soul. My second photographic passion is pets, particularly dogs. The shots of 4-legged babies that I love best are not unlike human headshots in that they capture personality and eyes that see right through you. Both types of headshots require coaching to get that perfect expression – I just have to have more treats on hand for pets!
