I am a photographer both street and studio, analog and digital in San Francisco. I work out of my studio, the Art Contact Studio on Pacific Street. I graduated with a BFA in Painting with an emphasis on fine art photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. I love creating, and I create everyday. For my paintings I work mostly in oils on very large canvases. I do commissions and have a client list of happy art collectors. Maybe you would like to be a part of that list...
