“I am a Photographer,
a Photographic Storyteller....
I tell stories,
through visual imagery, be it motion or stills. I care about what the story has
to say about my clients and who they are as a company. I take the utmost care
with getting that story right. In today’s fast pace, short attention span,
visual world, it is extremely important to have a strong visual narrative that
the audience connects with immediately. Let's talk about your story; I want to
tell your story”.
Ed currently serves on
the National Board of the American Society of Media
Photographers as a
National Director and is the Chairperson for ASMP’s Social
Media. Ed’s Photographic
Specialties Include: People/Lifestyle for: Advertising, Editorial,
Hospitality-Resort, Corporate and Annual Report sectors.
When Ed isn’t busy
telling stories, you can find him building tree houses, half pipes and
generally just trying to keep up with his two (pre-teenaged) sons.
