The Photocloser

Over the past 25 years I’ve had the great pleasure of representing and advocating for photographers. This creative business collaboration has yielded high paying, creatively satisfying assignments for photographers and remains my passionate mission. 

I host a once a month, free photography community event, PROJECTIONS. Over the past six years more than 300 photographers from around the world have presented their work with us to a global audience. 

Here on the site you can learn about a variety of Services I offer that will help you grow your business. 

The crown jewel is my four-hour, one-on-one personal workshop which is guaranteed to inspire you in every way. I call it the Creative Separation Capsule, nationwide over 1,000 photographers have attended. 

Our business has been wonderful to me, It’s my calling to give back in every way possible, that’s what PROJECTIONS is all about. If I can be of assistance to you in your development and evolvement please reach out. 

Currently I’m a speaker, portfolio reviewer, curator and judge for various trade groups and learning institutions. My affiliations run deep and wide: Epson, PhotoShelter, Pro Photo Daily, AI-AP, Eddie Adams Workshop, B & H Camera, ICP, Syracuse University, DC Fotoworks, APA, Palm Springs Photo Festival and ASMP. I’ve judged for the Lucie Awards, Sienna Photo Awards, Webby Awards, and Moscow Photo Awards among other competitions.
