I began in the 90’s photographing landscapes, wildlife, and travel. Had some success with my wildlife and travel work. Went to graduate school and took another path for several years, but keep coming back to photography. Currently shoot weddings and portraits, with the occasional TF shoot for fun and to keep the creative juices flowing.
I have a small in-house studio and shoot frequently on location. I love transformation with make-up and hair, and enjoy working with others to develop unique images based on the coordination of creation visions.
I am always interested in helping with special projects – just ask for help and schedule permitting I’ll pitch in. I enjoy working with models of any experience as long as they demonstrate professional ethics and most importantly, the ability to keep their word.
As a photographer, I am interested in all genres. I love working collaboratively with models in the planning of the shoot based on an idea or portfolio need. My MM portfolio reflects a very small selection of my recent work -

* Photo ID of model (and escort if model is accompanied) will be required and copied.
* Model release is required, copy available upon request. Must be signed prior to shoot and includes all images taken unless discussed prior to day of shoot.
* Models who are minors will only be scheduled after photo session has been discussed with parents. Parents must be involved in planning of photo shoot.
* For most shoots, if escort is to remain on site, must be female - regardless of model gender, or of the type of shoot, even if it's just a headshot. Most of the time guys get bored or are a distraction to the model – in other words, they become a disruption to the shoot. Significant males may bring you to the location, meet me and inspect the site/studio, but will be expected to leave the premises after pre-shoot discussion, with an agreed-upon time to return. Models should contact as many references as necessary to have the appropriate confidence and comfort level in working with me. To get the best images, you must be able to focus 100% on the camera, not distracted by someone off camera.
One final note: One of the biggest headaches of MM is models who schedule a shoot then don’t show or cancel at the last minute. Because of this, a phone number must be provided and a phone conversation will be expected before scheduling the shoot. I expect at least a 24 hour notice if unable to make shoot.
