“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
– Ansel Adams
Photographer & Videographer
Who Am I?
I like to consider myself an “entrepreneur” who is constantly seeking out new & inventive ways to provide amazing services to equally amazing clients.
I have owned a few businesses, everything from grass cutting services, to Information Technology services, to web design services.
The latter is what got me to pick up my first camera. I always had an interest in photography, as my father was a hobbyist. But the high cost of the gear was always hard to justify pursuing it just as a hobby.
When I began building websites however, the need to go onsite and take photos of people and places was enough to justify making the investment.
But it wasn’t just enough to have a camera, I had to learn how to use it. I had to learn about the exposure triangle, things such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, ect.
So I got started, watching YouTube videos, reading online how-tos and attending virtual classes. I was taking the camera everywhere I went! Taking pictures of all that I could! And I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
It brought me joy and fullfilment! And I seemed to “have a knack for it” (other’s words not my own, I tend to be my own biggest critic).
So at the encouragement of friends, family, as well as clients, I decided to pursue it professionally, and branch away from my main business (Cajun Fried Technology) to make Cajun Fried Photography it’s own brand. And here we are!

However, I believe that my skills, experience, and approach make me a premier choice for clients looking for beautiful, high-quality images that truly capture the essence of their moments and memories.

Another key aspect of my approach is my emphasis on creativity and innovation. While I have a strong foundation in traditional photography techniques, I also believe in pushing boundaries and exploring new and exciting ways to capture images. Whether it’s experimenting with unique lighting, angles, or post-processing techniques, I’m always looking for ways to create images that are fresh, dynamic, and unique.
Of course, one of the most important factors in choosing a photographer is their level of technical expertise and equipment.
