I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY! If I could shoot every waking hour of every day, I would be truly happy. I am so fortunate to be able to travel the country, and occasionally the world, working with artists from all walks, skill levels, and artistic drives! I'm always striving for personal and professional growth. After 20 years, I still learn something new at every shoot. For me, photography is about creating unique and interesting artistic imagery. With EVERY shoot, my primary goals are positivity and productivity.
Apr 30 - May 7 -- Las Vegas
May 17 - 19 -- San Francisco
Location: My studio rig is completely portable and I can shoot from just about anywhere. If you have locations you like, let me know. I will try to make an advance trip to look at them.
Wardrobe/Makeup: For the most part, wardrobe is to be provided by the model. 2-3 outfits are fine. Jewelry, body jewelry, scarves, and a variety of fun shoes (like pumps) are awesome additions! :-) If you are a smoker, let me know and I will work that into the shoot - I like smokey shots! Makeup should be clean and simple with some lip gloss. A few lipstick choices are a bonus.
References: Please contact anybody you can find who has shot with me in the past if you are seeking references. I do not filter them.
Media/Content: Although I was trained in film, I now shoot primarily in digital for convenience. For a very special project I may use 35mm or medium format camera. I shoot in color, black and white, infrared and UV color spectra. I also work occasionally with charcoal, pastels, acrylic and other media. I'm interested in the interplay of light, dark, color, form, concept, style, mood and emotion.
Posing/Coaching/Pace: I try to capture models with natural expression and try to minimize my coaching to preserve a natural mood. If a model needs direction or something does not look good, I will give direction, but I won't micromanage every pose. I am not one of those "super-fast" shooters and don't use "continuous" mode unless I'm actually shooting something that is moving at high speed. I take my time setting up shots and am conservative when I shoot. Maybe it's a carry-over from the habit of conserving the use of film, or the fact that I hate fixing things in post-production, but you can expect me to take my time setting up a shot.
Collaboration: I especially enjoy having a creative exchange with a model. If you have an idea before, during or after the shoot, don't hesitate to just blurt it out! When we are able to feed off of each other's creative energies, the final work will become greater than both of our talents and open us to new potential.
Mood: Above all, I want you to be comfortable with everything we shoot and to have a fun shoot! When the model is happy, the pictures are simply better!
Proofs/Prints: I will share JPGs of the images we shoot. You are free to use them for your portfolio. If you want retouching, high resolution digital prints or physical prints let me know. I'm happy to help! Work with with me for any commercial uses.
If you're interested in working with me, don't hesitate to contact me.
