Greetings! I started photographing raves and parties all over California over 18 years ago (ooh FMRs
). This was for an album cover:
That somehow transformed into wedding photography about 9 years ago:
I still love weddings but for the last 6 years, I have been happily shooting headshots, commercial and fashion.
Okie doke, answers to frequently asked questions:
I only do TF because sometimes, the best things in life are free. My goal is to give you photos you love, not to get your clothes off. Escorts are always welcome. Maybe it's the journalist in me, but I shoot better in casual settings. So bring your friends, chat, laugh, be the peanut gallery, I find it makes for more natural photos. While shooting, I show you pretty much every shot immediately after we take it, so we both see what worked and what did not, and adjust accordingly. Or if you prefer to shoot continuously, I can do that too. After the shoot, I upload medium-sized versions of all useable images to a private gallery on my web site and mail you the URL. I only leave out unsalvageable and color check shots. You select the ones you really like and tell me what changes, if any, you want me to make. Anything from erasing a pimple to changing the color of your clothes, my web site has many retouching examples. Depending on how much time I have, I may retouch more photos than the ones you selected. I then put the retouched images into a new gallery on my web site. I always give you full-resolution images, not scaled down versions, that have no watermarks or logos. I shoot with my trusty, 7yr old, Canon 1Ds MkI and L glass. I have portable studio lighting. I am happily married with three small kids so I am not going to ask you out or hit on you in any way. My "day job" (which is actually a 24/7/365 job) has absolutely nothing to do with photography.
My friends (which include all of the credited below) are my references. I have worked with, or at least had some contact with, all of them. Feel free to contact them to verify that I am not a creep.
If you have any questions, please mail me. Thank you!
