Mark Peters of Slate calledHannibal "an engrossing, psychologically dense show that is also visually stunning... the kind of gem seldom found on network TV."
Matt Zoller Seitz, writing for New York magazine heaped praise on the show, calling it "serenely unlike anything else on TV or anything that has ever been on TV."
Joshua Rivera of Buisness Insider stated that "Hannibal is a show that puts all of its chips on the table, blows up that table, and then builds something even more fascinating from what remains", and hailed it as one of the best shows on television. Dominic Patten of Deadline.com praised the acting of Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson and gave praise to creator and writer Bryan Fuller saying he creates "meticulously detailed scripts that define his characters in completely unpredictable ways." The review concludes by stating Season 3 "re-establishes Hannibal as the best horror show on television."
Chris Cabin of Slant Magazine gave Season 3 a very positive review, with four stars, and wrote that season 3 is "even more incisively and ambitiously written than the last season, and sporting the most radically impressive imagery currently on television."
Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly wrote, "Hannibal remains the most engrossing (and gross) serial-killer drama on television, and the most beautiful."
Behind The Scenes
"You have never been inside a film studio before? It will interest you as a phenomenon. You see, the film studio today is really the palace of the 16th century. There, one sees what Shakespeare saw. The absolute power of the tyrant, the courtiers, the flatterers, the jester, the cunningly ambitious intriguers. There are fantastically beautiful women, there are incompetent favourites. There are great men who are suddenly disgraced. There is the most insane extravagance, and unexpected parsimony over a few pence. There is enormous splendour, which is a sham; and also horrible squalor hidden behind the scenery. There are vast schemes abandoned because of some caprice. There are secrets which everybody knows and no one speaks of. There are even two or three honest advisors. These are the court fools, who speak the deepest wisdom in puns, lest they be taken seriously. The grimace, and tear their hair out privately, and weep."
Christopher Isherwood, Prater Violet.

I have spent over half of my life on film sets, really, over half of my life so far. Over those years I worked on well over 100 TV series and films. I have met and photographed hundreds of actors and celebrities, too many to list here. I have travelled, worked hard and collected a lot of experience and beautiful imagery that tell the story of my career thus far. When I set out to design this new and updated website I decided to resist the temptation to go too far back in time. I have been very lucky. There are wonderfully talented actors I had the great privilege of working with who are no longer with us. My photographs captured their enduring legacy and honor their contribution to the world of film. I am proud of that. Looking at stills I have taken from years gone by I am reminded and reminisce on so many special times, people and places. The images from "Crossfire Trail" take me back to one magical summer I spent working in the ranch country of Calgary, Alberta with Tom Selleck, Mark Harmon and Virginia Madsen on a Western movie. You don't see too many new western movies anymore. I have traveled from one coast of Canada to the other, several times, and I am grateful for every opportunity I ever was given to be a part of all of the stories that we told in so many wonderful locations. I am grateful to have worked with so many talented film craftspeople and to have had the opportunity to learn from them all. I love what I do. Though we never stop learning, after all of these years I have quite a wealth of knowledge and developed a formidable skill set as a stills photographer. I am reliable and hard working. If you think you could use a seasoned pro on your next project, I am your man!
