Award winning photographer specializing in portraiture (corporate, fashion, beauty, boudoir, lingerie), abstract, architectural and event photography.
Portrait photography has focused on corporate, student/graduation, fashion, beauty, lingerie, and boudoir images.
My goal is make a serious contribution to a model's portfolio and work with talented models to produce interesting and creative pieces of art. My goal is to make you look at good as possible. If I succeed then I have done my job.

TRAVELING PHOTO SHOOT CALENDAR:
Northern California, Jan 16-27 (looking for Sonoma/Napa shoots)
South Lake Tahoe, late January
Las Vegas, February (February 27 - Mar 4) (WPPI) (Many shoots!)
Sonoma Coast, March (TBD)
San Francisco, April 10-12
Many of my photos have been found in corporate brochures and event websites. Several have won international photography contests.
Prices are negotiable. TFP is always an option for experienced models and for projects that make a significant contribution to the portfolio.
I tend to take lots of photos as I invest in more time per session. I like having choices. A session may have 10-15 different looks rather than just 2 or 3, as is the norm. Some models end up with 100+ unique photos, edited, and ready to use for print or social media usage. Try finding one photographer on the planet who will do that for you.
All projects are mutually creative processes so I truly appreciate models who have creative ideas. Collaboration is key.
I am an educator, playwright (Pulitzer prize nominated.. try finding an MM photographer with a Pulitzer nomination.. ha!), conference organizer (code for loves to travel), artist and photographer. I have been recognized in every creative endeavor I have done. I take this stuff very seriously.
I tend to shoot in the following places: Central Valley of California, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, Reno. I will reach out to San Diego but only if it is a sunny day (hehe)!
My viewpoint on model 'escorts' is well summarized in this article:
My point: I do not allow escorts for any reason. Escorts are used by beginners in this industry. Escorts are more dangerous than photographers, so the use of them tends to indicate problems ahead. 100% of my shoots with escorts have resulted in theft, extreme interference and delays. It is always a boyfriend, fiancé or husband and they cannot handle photo shoots. They never stay out of the way. Next time you go to your dentist ask if you can have an escort. I will give you the same answer as they will. An 'escort' can visit the location and 'give the ok' but they must leave until the shoot is over. Debate this and the shoot is cancelled on the spot.

--- "Edward is an amazing photographer and person in general. One of the most relaxed shoots I've been in and one of the most fun in such a beautiful hotel room. As soon as I got there he had makeup and bottled water ready for me which im not used to photographers going out of their way for things like that. Loved each set we did and he had such a creative mind. Highly recommended photographer!" Angela Mazzanti (MM# 2616340)

---"Edward was well prepared as well as inviting, making it easy to be comfortable during the shoot. Polite, respectful and energetic can best describe him. He is punctual with his craft and gives positive direction and communicates efficiently with the models and their photographic visions as well to produce something beautiful both parties will enjoy. It was a blast working with him and would recommend him to other models seeking someone who will produce upstanding pictures for their portfolio as well as help them grow in their art.
