I've photographed all over the world for over 50 years. Have a studio Left Coast Photography in Santa Ana. Sponsor an event for models and photographers on the second Sunday of every month and have for more than 25 years,
If you have any questions speak with anyone in my top 12. They have all shot with me in my studio.
As for friends; This is not myspace so if you are a model and my friend it is either because you are my friend or I would like to work with you. If you are a photographer and my friend it is either because you are my friend or I have a great deal of respect for your work. If you have not looked at my work or contacted me in any way please don't ask to be my friend.
On Photoshop... JMO, but I think that the very best photoshop work is when no one can tell that anything has been done.
