I would not be a photographer if it wasn't for this dream [true story] ...
"This all started with a dream back in Aug 2010 ... one of those dreams that when you awoke, it felt real. The kind you have to pinch yourself afterwards so you can come back to reality.
In this dream ... I was there, tripod all setup on a grassy mountaintop - snapping photos of a beautiful Angel hovering before me. The Angel didn't speak a single word during our entire shoot and the Angel's beauty must not have been of human origin. She was of perfect beauty. Let it be known, she was the definition of beauty. 'Impossible' I thought.
Behind the Angel (in this dream) was a worldwide disaster ... chaos ...
It looked like an earthquake, hurricane, and tsunami all in one. The disaster behind the Angel looked like pictures from Hurricane Katrina in my dream.
But by photographing this beautiful Angel, I was helping the people impacted by this catastrophe. Every picture I took channeled more and more financial support and needed media attention to that particular disaster.
I awoke abruptly. And now I promised whoever sent me that dream, I would make into reality ...
We each have a purpose in the world we live in. Join me on this mission. The dream is real. Support. Love."

I am a busy 31yrs old male, originally from the PacNW, & just moved to San Diego (La Jolla) after living in Los Angeles since graduating from Pepperdine University. I currently split time between So Cali and PacNW. Masters degree holder in business, I own a boutique website design firm in OR and CA.
I love international travel, live music (bass guitar), avid volleyball player, fast cars, a practitioner of mixed martial arts - all of which you may find infused into some of my shots.
Eyes! -- the 'gateway to the soul', big fan of capturing my model's eyes (my focal point).
No ink please! -- Will most likely airbrush visible tattoos out (although some tattooed models I think are absolutely beautiful!). One exception: Got an angel wings tat? You're in!
Clothes On! -- I do not do any nudity shots.
Black & White/Sepia is beautiful!
Clean! -- Love the color white in my photos.
Themed! -- Love the 'angel' and 'heavenly dream' type themes.
Creative! -- Got Wings? always. :) (*I have 4 pairs!)
Philanthropy! -- One day my photography will be the largest contributor to various charities around the world.
Also, I like to create awareness of environmental issues!
I hope to leverage my work to change the world in a positive way. Working with me is an experience ... together we create ART. I am one of one. :)
I shoot primarily in Southern California and Pacific NW areas but I do tend to travel to the east coast 1-2 times a year + Europe. I am a landscape fanatic, so I will shoot a lot around beaches.
I am blessed to have a background in shooting Miss USA/America contestants, Victoria Secret runway model (Malin - Sweden), BEBE, & Guess Jeans promo models.
Ask me for my rates, but if I think your look will add to my port - I will consider working something out with you.
** I'm not on MM much so for a faster response, please contact me on my facebook page - facebook.com/AngelStatus if you are interested in setting up a photo shoot with me.
I recently shot in London, Copenhagen, and Malmo Sweden. Pics coming soon!
Thanks for visiting my portfolio. :)
