Title. Double click me.
The son of an architect, Al's first love was painting and illustrating - skills he employs today as a professional photographer. Al began his career in photography in 1992. After earning his Bachelor of Science Degree from Georgia State University in Atlanta, he served as a Naval Photographer and Ship's Armed Security in the United States Navy aboard the USS New Orleans LPH-11, U.S. Marine Corps Helicopter Carrier, from 1992 to '96, homeport San Diego, California. During his four years at sea, he served on two overseas tours of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Asia, and the Middle East.
Upon completion of duty, he traveled widely throughout the United States, and chose architectural photography as his professional concentration. Having fallen in love with the Rocky Mountains at an early age, he moved his base in 2002 to Colorado's Rocky Mountains and its flourishing cities of Colorado Springs, Denver, Broomfield, and Boulder. He thrived there until the summer of 2019 when he spent a full season exploring, photographing, and generally falling in love with the verdant beauty of the Nation of Wales and the City of London, England.
Upon return to Colorado in late Autumn of 2019, and always enthusiastic about new, enlightening adventures, despite Colorado's ineffable natural beauty, 17 years of its winter's black ice and blizzards seemed enough, and the warmth of the Arizona desert called. He moved his base to the Valley of the Sun in Phoenix, Arizona in late autumn and now makes the desert city his base.
Remaining ceaselessly dedicated to polishing his technical expertise and artistic eye, he's expanded his professional services over the previous decade to include portraiture, photojournalism, public relations, advertising, products, travel, fine art landscapes, and now marketing films.
With 27 years of experience as a professional photographer, and a decade as a film-maker, he shoots regionally and nationally on location for America's largest businesses, as well as many smaller, distinguished firms, and also makes his services available in selected international locales. His fine art photographs are displayed in selected private galleries, and his commercial imagery has been widely disseminated in all manner of business collateral, books, advertising and trade publications, local and national magazines, Fortune 100 office lobbies, corporate websites, and television commercials.
