Are you serious about your fashion/beauty career and being published? Me too - please read on...
As a published photographer and retoucher specializing in commercial, portraiture, and special event genres, the images that I capture are designed to provide insight into a subject’s life, surroundings, interests and unique character, rather than merely producing a likeness of their physical features. This is accomplished through a combination of light, color, location, and pose.
I am inspired and influenced by cinematic or fine art work, which I often attempt to incorporate into my images as I feel it helps further provoke thought and evoke emotion from the viewer. I am also drawn to the contrast of light and dark along with the use of bold, rich colors, which are prevalent in my work. While I may utilize strobes and artificial light, it is a natural look that I am after.
I use photography to encounter new people, explore new places, and discover new opportunities. Some of my images offer familiar settings or relatable subjects, while others incorporate slightly abstract or surreal elements.
I have an Associate of Science in Photography degree from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Please contact me for any relevant projects (paid assignments mostly, very limited TFP/TFCD unless it is for publication). I service the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York areas, but am willing to travel. Please visit my website to view my current photography portfolio.
