How I Became an Oil Painting Photographer

How I developed my technique and portfolios of the artists who hire me to document their work.

Back around the turn of the century, I was studying landscape oil painting with Joe Paquet. As a freelance website designer and photographer, I consequently built websites for the painters I met. It was at that time that I discovered how complicated photographing an oil painting is.

Here’s the cool thing: I grew up in a print shop and worked in the darkroom after school running a half-ton process camera. So I had the skills & training to solve this problem. I reinvented the process with modern technology: developed new techniques, built my own specialized equipment and found the perfect camera and lens for this highly specific service.

As a result I have the pleasure of working for some of the best artists, delivering high-quality images at great prices.
