I love photography, and I photograph what I love. I believe in going the extra mile for a good shot.. whether it means driving farther up the coast for an empty beach, or hiking up to the hills above LA for a shoot at dawn. My goal is to make photographs that stand out in an age of unlimited pictures on tumblr and facebook. I shoot digital and film, and I am inspired by the fleeting moments of beauty that linger in our memories.
I usually provide final edited pictures within a week of the shoot. I do trade for shoots that interest me, generally editorial-style and abstract art. For headshots and commercial style, I am happy to trade my time for money. I don't mind if a friend/driver/escort/boyfriend/mom brings you to the shoot, but when I'm shooting, I find other people to be distracting, so I require privacy for the actual shoot.
If you would like to speak to some models I've shot with, feel free. I can also provide contact info for some people I've worked with who are not on MM.
Whew, after all that writing, I remember why I decided to try being a photographer instead of an author! Lets take some pictures already! =)
