About Me

June 26, 2015:  Update re Mom: I'll be leaving on the 28th for a month.  Will check in, albiet less often on my Ipad or even Iphone.  Thanks.

BIO:  Experienced beach photographer with a love of beauty and glamour photography.  My passion is to make every image as perfect as possible in order to allow the model to look her/his very short, Im going for bomb-a*s beautiful (or handsome!). 

I've been lucky in that so far to get very pretty shots-- striving for a feel for what the model is really like.  That's the miracle of it for me:  Capturing personality along with using tools such as lighting, styling and and (hopefully!) a trained eye to allow each subject look as beautiful or handsome as possible.

Learning outdoor (esp.: beach) lighting while studying Photoshop is challenging but rewarding.  Have been fortunate to have images published in &  Always open to shooting for publication.  It depends on the concept, model and the magazines available.

I retouch my own work unless a rare collaberation is noted.  It is important to me that my vision remains 'my vision' from the type of lens I choose to the look of the the final, sized image.  Some images I use straight from the camera.  Some I prefer to work on in Photoshop.  My work practice does not include exposing the model or client images to random, non-vetted photographers or retouchers. That being said, for certain projects, I am fortunate enough to have joined forces with a graphic artist (retoucher) whose vision matches up beautifully with mine.  More importantly, he is well-known, well-respected and dedicated to the integrity of his field.  I should also mention that he is wildly talented & produces crazy-beautiful work.  tongue

Thank you to everyone who has helped me.  I've been lucky to meet some caring, fun, sweet people who have helped me tremendously.  I will try to return that kindness. Thank you again. smile

Animal rights/rescue: I'm very involved in the rescue community, placing dogs & cats..trying to keep strays out of the pound & reunite lost dogs w/owners.  Recently, I also became involved in wildlife rescue.  If you're reading this and share the passion of helping animals, please send me a FR or PM. 

The MM community has been an impressive blend of friendly, intelligent, creative people.  Thank you to everyone who has left a message/tag or has taken the time to read my bio and check out my portfolio.  Silly prior Model Profile # 710891 tongue   

Best, Petie the Chihuahua & Laurie @ Bella
