Website Ported to WordPress Format

I’ve completed the transition from a standard website format to the WordPress format for the website.  Use the nav. bar at the top or the page menu on the right sidebar to navigate through the site.

A new page for Commercial photography and services has been added including a selection of images from past assignments.
