About Me

Creating portraits of sophistication and imagination. I shoot more of a mixture of art and fashion. If you like what you see, please send me a message and let's shoot.

Francesco Scavullo (1921-2004) was an American fashion photographer who influenced me. He may have not been the best, nor had the most notoriety, but he influenced me. One afternoon, back in the mid-70's when I was going to college, I was watching the Diane Shore TV Show. On this particular day Scavullo was her guest. He talked about fashion photography and of the many celebrity portraits that he had taken. Up until that day I had never thought about photography as a career or a profession. Honestly, I don't think that I even thought about who had taken all those photographs that I had seen in magazines all my life.

His guest appearance that afternoon got me started to think a little bit different about photography. Scavullo introduced me to a whole new world. Soon after I discovered other fashion photographers.

My mom had a friend who sold lingerie. She wanted some photographs of her styles to create a catalog (or a "Look Book" if that is what they were called back then). What do I remember about that afternoon and the photographs that I took of the models dressed in lingerie? Well, my photos didn't look as good as Scavullo's. That is what I remember.
