If you have received a "Friend Request" I am interested in working with you. I review each portfolio before sending out or responding to a "friend" request. I strongly encourage you to reply to my "friend" request. I normally shoot between San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. However, I will be travelling to the San Luis Obispo area once a month on family business. As I am in route to San Luis Obispo or back home to the Inland Empire, I may stop in the Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and/or Simi Valley areas. I will always check my "friends" first for possible photo sessions.
I am currently scheduling in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Riverside until the first of December.
Once I receive your "friend" reply, I will be forwarding a photo shoot inquiry. The timing of the initial contact letter will depend on my current work schedule. I will inform you of my interest to discuss a photo session with you. If you do not hear back from me immediately, that does not mean I do not want to schedule a session. As I approach the age of 60, I try to regulate my travel.
As a consequence of entertainers and models approaching me to update their headshots, whenever possible I like to work with a Makeup Artist (MUA). I also like to establish new shooting venues, i.e. Queen Mary, Balboa Park, Morro Rock, and Solvang. I am sure that you are aware of other exciting places that provide an excellent backdrop.
Based on your need and time constraints, please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in scheduling an immediate photo shoot.
I have worked with both experienced and beginners. Most of the men and women have expressed appreciation for my direction.
As previously mentioned, it is not unusual for most actors, entertainers and models to request current headshots. I will always shoot several headshots during the session.
My images are currently TF while I am working on poses and fashion. This will change at a later date, as I am in constant contact with modeling and talent agencies. I currently shoot with a 24.3 mega pixel, Sony a65 digital camera. I use a 20.4 Mega Pixel, fixed lense, Sony digital, in reserve.
The models and/or actors I work with frequently comment that they like the natural appearance of my images. Because I do not have a studio and travel to sites, I am not opposed to the use of escorts.
I am open to most ideas, excluding sacrilegious and sexually explicit images. As previously mentioned, I am currently working on posing and the wardrobe of the model.
Unless noted otherwise, I have conducted any retouch and/or edit of the images contained in my portfolio. There have been no other manipulations of the photographs.
UNDER AGE OF 18
Minors (under the age of 18) will always need to have parental involvement to work with me. For the safety of all underage models, I will need to receive approval from their parent or guardian prior to any photo shoot. All photography, involving a minor, will be conservative in it's scope. I have passed an extensive FBI background investigation and have been approved to work projects within a local school district.
EXPENSE and PAYMENT:
Currently I work TFP/CD. All of my photographs are natural and can be easily edited by any photo shop software. At this time, the purpose of any image that I use is intended for display in my personal portfolio. The model and MUA will receive a letter indicating that he/she is permitted to reproduce, edit, manipulate, and/or sell the images.
For the benefit of the subject and/or MUA, photo shoots will be maintained in an untouched state on the Photo Bucket web-site. Upon request, I will lock or remove the photo shoot from Photo Bucket.
The majority of my photo shoots last two hours in duration. However based on the location, nature and the model's time constraints the photo shoot may last 1/2 of an hour to five hours. Most of my sessions are available for viewing by 10:00 p.m. the same evening on the Photo Bucket web-site.
Occasionally, I will be willing to pay a reasonable rate to an experienced model and/or MUA, (with a strong portfolio). I will contact them directly.
I visit and explore new shooting locations on a consistent basis. On separate occasions, models Sarra Hansen and Breana Gabriel accompanied me on photo shoots to the Maritime Museum located in the San Diego Bay. I have used Torrey Pines State Park, located in La Jolla, CA, and Balboa Park in San Diego, several times for background. Model Princess Tierra used rock formations on Route 66 in Apple Valley as a backdrop. Alivia Campbell was photographed at Historic Perris Lake and Park. The beaches in Santa Monica, Huntington, Newport, San Diego and Oceanside have been visited, at least once, by a model and me for a photo shoot. Patrick Reid, Wyldcat, and Everett Savoy were photographed on the grounds of Cal Tech and the University of California at Northridge. Finally, although I do not list the exact location, model residences have also been used on multiple occasions as a photo site.
Regarding the models, I have not worked with any that I would not work with again. All the models and MUAs listed in my portfolio have been extremely pleasant and easy to work with, including their escorts. I enjoyed working with each of them.
Based on the large number of actors and models I work with, short descriptions will be limited to recent, active and/or worthy of special mention. I credit all images. If you are interested in information regarding the actor/model please follow the link to their personal portfolio.
A special thanks to Payton Trix, Danielle McVicker, Autumn Becerra, DanniBambi, Everett Savoy, Karri Lauritzen and Wyldcat for their energy and creativity; my respect and best wishes to Alli D who is currently battling cancer; Danielle McMillian for her impressive graduation from Stanford University; to Hallie Hoefer who is attempting to reach the next selection stage for "America's Next Top Model." I hope to see Brittney M. (New Jersey), Haley White (North Carolina), and Alivia Campbell (Florida), visit California again. Breana Gabriel, at 5'2", is one of the most talented models I have seen. Finally, ALWAYS MY BEST, to all the other models and MUAs who took time out of their day to permit me the opportunity to photograph and work with them.
The couples in my portfolio are: Karri and Dutch; Wyldcat and Patrick; Candy and Ty; Dayna and Russell; Lacy and Eric; Ly and boyfriend (visiting from Estonia); and Chanel Lynn with boyfriend and Baby.
Yes, that is me "The Photographer". The picture was taken recently at the Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma outside San Diego, California.
I am 59 years old and have been married for 25 years. I drink very little alcohol and I do not use illicit drugs. Please respect my feelings on this matter during the time we are together on the photo shoot. This includes your escort(s). I will not shoot nudes unless I have previously worked with the model and he and/or she requires a personal need for the photographs.
