Bruce’s exposure to cameras at a very early age, helped him to see many aspects that can create the great results in the images he captures. He virtually lives and breathes photography as his eyes look at his environment with a visual curiosity wherever he goes. He often has said how he feels incomplete when leaving home out without a camera, therefore, he often prefers to be a photographer during his leisure as well.
Bruce has enjoyed rotating between still photography, motion picture and video productions. He feels this variety of work has benefitted his style in a reciprocal way. His motion picture experience tends to give his still photography a cinematic look. His still photography background has influenced his movie compositions to take on the quality of a great photograph.
His experiences allow him to offer you a great variety of photography from one source.
