Making Every Day Count
My Japanese friend taught me "Hibi Kore Koujitsu" which means Every Day is a Good Day. Life is what you make of it, so make it count! Time is the greatest gift of all because each new minute is another chance to do something better.

Here's the actual video footage that was used on Local 4 TV News:

It's pronounced Bokeh, which means "fuzziness" in Japanese. I create a very specific foreground and background blur (i.e., Boke). My specialty is creating images similar to those seen by the human eye.
Creating Boke in low light and through glass windows can be tricky... But by employing special shutter timings, I illuminate subjects while avoiding harsh reflections from the glass. Additionally, I capture what’s on the other side of the glass, creating seldom-seen translucent images.
Several local jazz musicians have published my pictures on their CD covers.
Ad agencies also use my photos on their comp cards. Congratulations to Jayla for being featured on a magazine cover: www.modelmayhem.com/383218
I enjoy helping others by offering a limited number of TFP (time for prints) shoots. It's nice when models make a small donation to a local animal rescue group in order to show their appreciation for my shooting TFP. Here are a few dogs they helped to rescue: www.a2.com/rusty & www.a2.com/shilo
To support our troops, I offer free family portraits to service men and women. Please comment on Mario's kids, whom I've posted here on MM.
Taking Time to Smell the Roses
Being grateful and appreciative is characteristic of enjoying inner peace and contentment. If you shoot with me, please take time to smell the roses -- and not just look through them. I’m very personable and enjoy getting to know people. And don’t forget to say thanks to everyone after a shoot…
Let's Shoot Together
I'm now exploring HD video. Please let me know if you're interested in shooting. I'm available as a primary or backup photographer for all your special events.
If you'd like to work with me please let me know:
