Starting with a fascination with the photos in national geographic since before I could read I have always been in love with photography. Growing up I always played with my film camera. I never really looked at it as anything more than art or a hobby until I got some random jobs taking photos for a private investigator. Shortly after I saved up my money for my first digital camera and made the jump professional from there never looking back. I have always been on the forefront of the digital revolution. 5 years ago I was one of the founding partners of a Photography Firm of which 4 of the photographers are listed in the top 100 in their various specialties. Commercially my specialties are Travel, Aerial and Architecture. I do still enjoy the challenges of wedding photography and my work in that field has been featured in leading trade journals. Right now what I find the most rewarding and enjoyable is giving back the gift I was lucky enough to receive. Whether teaching young photographers or giving high end seminars or on photo safaris it reenergizes me seeing that spark in others.
I am not here to talk about or advertise for my company. I made mention about it above just as a description of my photographic experience. I am here to find people to collaborate on my fine art projects with. I would also like to network with other creatives. I am not here for portfolio building work. I know many qualified fashion and catalog photographers who I can recommend. I am not interested in charging models. I do test lifestyle and fashion shoots on occasion especially in the seasons when the weather is favorable. I enjoy shooting outside the confines of a studio. I do trade work (TFCD/ TFP) for my fine art work. When the project is finished and makes it to a gallery I do offer a percentage of the profit from prints sold to the model.
I am a professional photographer and I behave in a professional manner and I expect all others involved in my projects to behave as such also. Please no flaking!! No shows and no calls are unacceptable. No boyfriends or significant others allowed on shoots. I am sorry the answer will always be NO so please don’t ask. 100% of the time it is a distraction. Don’t waste my time and I wont waste yours. Parents, friends etc are not a problem as long as they make themselves not a distraction. I will have a stylist, make up artist or someone with me on all shoots unless otherwise noted.
Thanks for visiting my site!! Look forward to hearing from you.
My work has been published internationally. My fine art work has been featured in galleries throughout the nation.
