I became a professional after receiving a photojournalism degree from the University of South Carolina in 1992. After graduation, I started working as a freelance photographer for the Associated Press as well as several editorial publications and businesses. My photographs have been published all over the United States, including the New York Times, U.S. News and World Report, USA Today and People magazine. Currently, I'm a photojournalist in Columbia, South Carolina,  specializing in photographs of families, kids, pets, website portraiture, real estate, special events and second marriages.
