About

4 continents and 20 some countries later

I never dreamed the world would be my office space and people of all nationalities my co-workers.    

The early years I spent in college and as a radio personality helped me hone in on my purpose in life. When I realized that my passion was also my calling, I received the gift of clarity about who I am and what I was meant to do.  

 As a professional photographer, I have traveled the world meeting people from all walks of life, nationalities, and ethnicities. Looking through the lenses of my cameras revealed similarities rather than differences. What I learned is that we have far more in common than I would have guessed. 

Photographing catalogs for National Geographic has placed me in some of the most remote locations in the world. I also have photographed fashion models on some of the slickest, most prestigious runways in New York City including images for the impeccable Vera Wang. It is likely you have seen my images in magazine advertisements. I have climbed mountains and navigated cities and bodies of water on assignment throughout the United States and in Europe, Ireland, Cuba, Asia, and Central and South America. Perhaps most astonishingly, I traveled miles and miles underground in utter darkness to photograph a West Virginia coal mine.   

To date, my most memorable assignment is the work I did for Pope Francis and Friends. In his book, Sharing the Wisdom of Time (Loyola Press, 2018), Pope Francis provided a platform for elderly people all over the world to hand down to younger generations their most significant insights. Their wisdom. My job was to capture portraits that communicated the essence of their personalities as well as the unique aspect of their narratives. During one month spent traveling to 10 countries, I met truly extraordinary people. Even when we didn’t share a common language, I was able to get to know them enough that their stories will live on inside me forever. The book was the inspiration for a Netflix series, Stories of a Generation

My first hands on experience was with a camera was a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye at six years old. I remember looking down through the viewfinder from up above. I clicked. What came back wasn’t just a picture. No. It had magic in it.   

Now, my equipment may fill many suitcases but what has never changed is the certainty that something magical happens in the sequence between photographer and photograph, and then again in the interplay between you and me. So thank you for being here. Without you, one of the essential components of my work would be missing. Without you, there would be no connection.   

 I would love to hear your thoughts as you work your way through my Website. Please feel free to stay in touch with my newsletter and by writing to me at info@audiaart.com.

Inspiration

Grateful for a unique way of viewing life and the people in it. The lust for travel and meeting new people from around the world and looking for the beauty in all it offers keeps me going.

Orson Welles said it best: Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.

Techniques

From film to digital I've been experimenting with new ways to see and experience and capture my work and adventures. And whether it's with a plastic toy camera or the latest technology, it's all about your ability to utilize the tools you have and bring your vision to light.

career highlights

Every assignment, person, product, landscape is unique. What is the top of the list? It has to be my part of traveling and photographing the book for Pope Frances and Friends and Loyola Press.  I was given names and countries and a month to complete it. I set off by myself, limited equipment, 1 plane ticket to England and proceeded to meet and photograph in 6 other countries. I hear their voices every time I open the book.   SHARING THE WISDOM OF TIME
