About Me


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" inquiry. If you might be interested in working with me, I strongly encourage you to reply to the query. I will always check my "friends" first for possible photo sessions. 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.

I normally shoot between San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.

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 a consequence of entertainers and models approaching me to update their headshots, whenever possible I like to work with a Makeup Artist (MUA). My images are currently TF while I am working on poses and fashion.

Occasionally, I maybe willing to pay for an experienced model, with a strong portfolio. Please understand, because I frequently shoot TF with published models, it is not unusual for me to reimburse a MUA for their work and cosmetics. Consequently, I am not inclined to pay for the services of a model.

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.


I currently shoot with a 24.3 mega pixel, Sony a65 digital camera. I use a similar model as a reserve.

I do not shoot nude images. 'Edgy' images will not display sensitive (sexual) body parts.

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 themes. 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. 


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.


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.

Four of the women in my portfolio, reached the contract stage for "America's Next Top Model." Several others have been published and/or expanded into other modeling and entertainment fields.

Yes, that is me "The Photographer". The picture was taken in 2010 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). As previously mentioned, 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.
