It is also the reason agencies and high-profile individuals have enlisted Don’s unique and beautiful approach to photography.
A 1981 graduate of Brooks Institute in California, Don blends decades of commercial photography experience with his intrinsic feel for the fine art of photography to create award-winning and powerful images.

“Thanks for your talent and letting me be in front of your camera. I’ve worked with many photographers before, but your talent exceeds them all. Your encouragement and professionalism made the hours seem like minutes and the shoot inspirational.”
