I am a photographer first and foremost, and NOT a digital artist who creates "incredible" images POST shoots. If you are looking for that; sorry, look elsewhere. I shoot for realism and consistency during all of my shoots and not just looking for that one killer image from an entire set. My mission is to preserve your memories as you see them so that you will have an everlasting image that brings back those feelings that you had at the time of photographing.
If you are looking to build, improve, or just diversify your portfolio I'd love to collaborate with you. I am fond of challenges from shooting baby portraits, to high school senior photos to landscapes to pro models and musicians. I love to work with everyday people. Everyone deserves to feel like a supermodel and everyone has it in them. My job is to capture it and have a blast doing so.
I don't make the models, they make themselves! I am about creating images, undertaking all aspects in photography, especially strong beautiful images, and doing so in a friendly, easy-going atmosphere. I am serious and passionate about my work and not settling for mediocrity.
Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was young. A couple of years ago I decided to go semi-pro. It has been working out so far. I do portraits (business, family, seniors) and landscape photography to subsidize my photography habit. I really enjoy the work but decided to try glamour/fashion style of photography to grow creatively and professionally. I really enjoy it. Right now I am looking to work with people that want to expand their portfolios. I am a location-photographer, and I prefer natural lighting and a variety of settings.
This profile is a TF* profile. I do not charge models for my time, nor will I compensate models for their time. This is an outlet for both parties to learn, improve and hone their craft in a bid to create a piece of work that both parties will enjoy.
I have no problems with models bringing along an unobtrusive,sober, mature adult escort...HOWEVER, if the escort becomes a problem, the shoot will be ended. I am very easy to get along with, but my patience can be tried. I treat everyone with the same respect that I want to be treated with in return.
I love photos that convey a mood, a moment, a personality, a singular and compelling something that draws me into the picture plane. I take too many pictures, and I don't take enough. I have always loved photography, and I am forever working on developing my style to bring all these things together in all the images I make.
