About Me

I'm a photographer based in Charlotte, NC. My rates are reasonable. I am willing to shoot TF (Trade), but I also accept bookings to give you a unique look and I will consider paying you to model if you are experienced and have the photos to back it up.

You will never be asked to do anything that is outside your comfort zone and a chaperone is always welcome on a shoot to watch or assist you (I may put them to work!). I have a studio partnership in Concord, NC. For outdoor shoots, if needed, I also have my own studio gear with portable power and can set up appropriate lighting on location shoots just about anywhere. I shoot only with professional full frame bodies, professional series lenses, and off-camera lighting as needed.

Boudoir shoots may be accomplished in the studio or in a suite hotel, depending on preference. Hair and makeup artist is available for an additional fee or may be provided as part of a TF shoot.

If you are a model seeking payment in money from me for your services. Realize that the fee you are paid is your total compensation. If you desire photos, you may purchase as many prints or social-media-ready digital files from your paid shoot as you wish, but you aren't going to be paid in both money AND free edited photos. If you want your photos, we'll shoot TF, or else you can pay ME to photograph you and I'll deliver high-res, edited photos to you from our shoot along with a print and social media release. Fair is fair, right?

If you travel for a TF shoot, I will cover your travel and shoot-related expenses.

I typically shoot on weekdays during daylight hours. Weekend work must be booked in advance and is generally paid work - but we can talk.

I enjoy shooting Fashion, Glamour, Portraits, Boudoir, and outdoor events, including weddings. I also shoot civic and sports events, so I'm pretty varied in my tastes. Check out my Flickr (above) or Facebook ( site for recent pix. I also have another website at

MODELS BEWARE! There are many photographers on MM and Facebook that are just smooth talking Guys With Cameras who just want to see you naked for no good reason. Please check references and check with other photographers in the local community before you do a shoot with any photographer you've just met on Facebook or Model Mayhem. Don't become a victim of exploitation! Photographers should take your picture, say thank you, and say goodbye.
