My passion is first responder photography and videos, and this has helped several Arizona fire departments with their training and public relations. By partnering with me, you will receive imagery and videos of your firefighters and other first responders in action. This can be used to educate the public, to boost your PR and for numerous internal purposes.

Additionally, as part of my commitment to assisting all emergency first responders in the area, I offer discounted personal photo and video services. First responders will receive a discount when they hire me to capture a special event, birthday, retirement party, Sweet 16 and much more!


My first responder photography services are available to first responder agencies throughout Arizona. Work with me to capture your events, ceremonies, training sessions, academy and graduations, gals, fundraiser community events, live emergencies and LODD. This imagery can be used in a wide variety of ways, including in training manuals and to help boost your public profile. I also offer custom photography solutions for magazines and other specific specialty projects.

I currently have a long list of available stock photography images of first responders in action. Each photograph is carefully vetted to ensure that only the best of the best is listed online. However, if you are looking for a specific image outside of this online collection, please contact me to learn more about my photo archives and custom staged photos.

Are you a first responder who is looking for personal photography or video services? I happily offer a discount to first responders for their personal needs, including birthday parties, Sweet 16s, retirement parties and other events.

Video Production

Videos are another great way to reach out to the community! My background in video production and firefighter photography enables me to offer high quality video services to all emergency first responders. My video work includes capturing speaking engagements, fire and life safety training, special events and public announcements such as a message from the fire chief to the community. These events should all be documented, and professional video production will make them a viable resource for your public safety, training and PR needs. When you work with me, you won’t receive a shaky video recorded by a smartphone. Instead, I’ll provide you with high quality, professional results that will help your videos capture the attention of their intended audience.

Do the members of your first responder team have important personal events coming up? I offer a discount on my video services for anyone who works as a first responder. Examples of personal services that are eligible for this discount include retirement parties and college application videos. Contact me to learn more about the creative video solution that I offer for your personal or professional needs.
