I want to thank you all for the kind words, they're truly appreciated! And, a thank you to all of the models that took the time to work with me. You were all very patient with me and helped me build a portfolio that I'm proud to show.
Thank you all!

I am a portrait photographer. I don't approach a shoot with any preconceived ideas or concepts. I don't use my subjects as props. I don't use makeup artists or stylists. I photograph them as they are, or as they present themselves to the camera.
I improvise, offer suggestions, nudge them, push them along and guide them to wherever they want to go. This all comes from them.
I just set up the situation and work with what they give me. I will always add a twist or two. A distraction that takes their mind off of the camera for a few seconds. It's, life between the clicks.
As for my style, I've always tried to push the boundaries a bit and come up with something different. I keep the set raw, minimal and secondary to the subject at hand. I do exhibit and publish my work.
I must end this by saying, there are always exceptions! Please ask!
I'm a professional, I take my work seriously, I treat my subjects with respect. My studio is always a relaxed, creative, fun environment and for now, I only trade.
I'm a left handed, ambidextrous, dyslexic, artist and I wear it proudly!
