Our Expired Members….

Members with expired IPA Press ID are no longer affiliated with IPA and are no longer part of our independent staff team. 

At IPA we want to stop illegal use of our ID and claims of membership. Doing so undermines IPA and only hurts our current members and our reputation.  We take this matter seriously.

All past members should adhere to our Terms of Membership and no longer use their expired IPA press documents or infer they are still part of our independent staff.

Those that grant media access are urged not to grant access or benefits to any of these past members or anyone claiming they are part of our independent staff.

If you have been contacted by any individuals claiming membership at IPA and would like to verify that members status, you can do it here or you can contact us for further verification.

There are a number of individuals with fake IPA Press ID that they may have purchased on the streets of Thailand.  Read more about these ID’s and see the photos so you can recognize valid IPA ID from the fakes.

Photojournalist • Boynton Beach, FL, USA

IPA Member ID: 06549 • Expiration Date: EXPIRED

I am a semi-professional photographer with years of experience covering many media events. For the first 15 years of my photographic career, I've focused on Wildlife and Nature Photography. Most recently, I would call myself a "lifestyle photographer". Basically, that means that I mix photojournalism, candid portraits, and creative photography approaches to capture the most beautiful and hidden moments. The silent vulnerability & raw emotion is what I aim to capture in each photo I take.
