SEPTEMBER PHOTO SHOOTS SCHEDULED FOR SEATTLE, PORTLAND, OAKLAND, FRESNO AND LOS ANGELES.
*****AGENCY APPROVED PHOTOGRAPHER*****
I strive to create images that make powerful statements via body language and composition. If I am able to evoke emotion and feeling upon initial viewing, then I 've achieved my ultimate goal.
I believe photographs are frequently more powerful than words if properly executed. I strive to perfect locations, composition and model selection to properly depict the story to be told. It is a story told in large part though the body language of each model. I 've been blessed to collaborate with many great models who have shared their dreams and who have served as charismatic inspirations. I would ask that if you view an image in my portfolio that moves you, please link up to the model and provide them with your random act of kindness in the form of a List, Tag or Comment....for without their unselfish commitment, the images you are viewing would never have been created.
I've come to realize that the true meaning in our lives comes when we fulfill our obligations to others. Photography provides the tool for me to fulfill that obligation and for that precious gift, I am truly blessed.
Ninety percent of my work is unaltered and un-photoshopped. What you see is what you get. I shoot both film and digital.
I'm a modeling agency approved photographer and at this time, I'm doing limited TF shoots, however, I am always looking to test with the right models. Please feel free to send a message-- but also understand that paid work takes priority.
PLEASE...BEFORE REQUESTING ADD AS A FRIEND, TAKE A MOMENT TO COMMENT OR LEAVE A LIST AND I WILL DO LIKEWISE. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY. MAHALO, Roger
