About Me

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by smile.

I am a former full-time commercial photographer who took time away from the industry to pursue other interests, opportunities, and adventures.  After successfully building a completely unrelated (and ongoing) career, I am thrilled to be back in the industry, not for of the money, but because of my love of photography and art.  There is nothing more thrilling to me than conspiring with others to have fun, to be creative, and to make beautiful images.

At this stage I'm focused on updating my portfolio with styles and concepts which not only showcase my vision, but also inspire and challenge me. 

From time to time I enjoy working with new and aspiring talent (model, MUA, hair, and wardrobe stylists) on a TFP/TFCD basis.  If you dig my work and have a specific concept you'd like to collaborate on, I'd love to hear from you.

I appreciate your inquiries and enjoy looking at your work, however I am not in the market for retouching services and will not accept any friend requests from retouchers at this time.  I am very happy with the retoucher I use now, a good friend, and I am not looking to change.  If this ever changes in the future, I'll update this section.  Thank you!!


Communication - if we decide to work together, it's important that we communicate effectively on shoot details.  I promise to return PM's, emails, calls, or texts promptly, and I do expect the same in return.  I do prefer to talk at least once before the shoot either in person or on the phone.  It's simply much more professional, and it helps ensure we are both on the same page smile

Escorts - I am fine with a model bringing ONE escort to the studio for our shoot, but at no time is an escort allowed on set while photography is underway.  I usually have a MUA and/or hair stylist on set, and so it often gets crowded, not to mention distracting.

Regarding Friend Requests - I am not one to collect "friends" for the sake of the numbers.  If you send a FR, please be sure to leave a pic comment, tag, or preferably a PM first so I can understand where you're coming from and how being friends would be worthwhile to us both.
