I am a Ringling College of Art & Design Photography and Digital Imaging graduate currently residing in Sarasota, Florida.
I consider myself a story teller, and have created stories through the use of photography, video, novels, and as part of a writing duo for a major comic project.
My photography-related work is comprised of five years at a picture production company (photographing framed artwork for a commercial catalog and website) and five months of working as a professional photographer’s assistant (Photoshop and printing).
I have years of experience in photography, and much of that experience has gone into working in Photoshop, where I can scan and optimize others’ photographs, paintings, or other works. I have frequently shot shows for Selby Gallery, and have also worked for Sarasota Magazine at both events and optimizing photographs for the magazine’s website. I have also scanned photographs of and taken photographers of others’ artwork for digital archives.
I also have two years of Digital Film experience, and have created several movies. I especially enjoy editing films and have the resources to continue doing so.
Aside from my photography and film work, I also enjoy writing. I have three published novels, with several more on the way. I spend much of my time working on my website, Valice.net, or writing on my stories.
I can also work as an assistant to other photographers. I have experience on a set, on location, and I have my own Digital SLR, flash unit, Mac Pro with Windows installed, and Photoshop. Hard drive space is never a problem for me, so I keep a copy of every file I work with.
Contact me by email, and I will gladly share my phone numbers and other information.
