I'm a professional commercial photographer and an High end Retoucher based out of Vancouver BC - Originally from Iceland, then the USA where I got the chance to work with great models (in NY) along with retouching for many of the major magazines and beauty products.
here in Vancouver I shoot editorials, along with advertising and catalog work. - and yes, product too!
I have had the chance to photograph some celebrities, like Jessica Alba and Lisa Edelstein to name the big ones..
Within the "fashion" photography, my favorite is Beauty.. there is something about the closeup of a person, seeing their eyes so clearly and features that really inspire me. Working with great girls, and boys (on occasion) is a treat.. however we are all beautiful in our own way.. some just a little more photogenic than others.
I strive for perfection in my work, and therefor work only with the top - notch artists and models from agencies. I don't do a whole lot of "creatives" but when I do it's with those same people.
Models if you want to shoot with me, you must be professional and have great features, nice personality, don't be shy, and if you are fake it! height is not an issue for beauty, but your face is.. I love long necks!
Artist.. hair, makeup & styling - if you feel you have what it takes to be on top, to create unsurpassed beauty.. you are welcome to contact me, but you must be able to show me great pictures and I cant guarantee anything, but I will take the time to view your work if first impression is good.
Professionalism is the key!
If you are interested in hiring me for portfolio photo-shoots - I most certainly will help you out there :)
