I am a Certified Professional Photographer, through the Professional Photographers of America. I specialize in portraiture (people and pets) and real estate photography, but I participate in many other avenues, including fine art and events. Most of my fine art images may be viewed at http://consanphotos.smugmug.com.
I began serious photography with my first manual SLR film camera during college, later moving into the digital world, although occasionally I still shoot film. I show my fine art work at various venues in the Cincinnati area. My images appear in two Capture Cincinnati books and in the recent World Choir Games commemorative book, and several of my images have won awards, including seven that have merited in the 2015, 2016, and 2017 International Photographic Competition, three of which were selected for the prestigious Loan Collection (and book) and one for the Showcase Book.
While mostly self-taught, in recent years I have completed a number of photography classes, participate in online seminars to continue to improve my skills, and am active in several greater Cincinnati area photography groups. I am also a classically-trained musician and perform in several local community ensembles. Otherwise, you'll find me spending time with my five rescue Pomeranians, Gizmo, Kira, Lobo, Auggie, and Roxie.
