Hello! My name is Don, and thank you for visiting. To see my portfolio, please click on the picture on this page.
NEW MODELS: I enjoy working with people who are both new to modeling and more experienced - to date I have done shoots with people from age 5 to 63. To see samples of my work, please click on the picture on this page, then you can enlarge each picture by clicking on it.
FIRST-TIME MODELS: Are you a model and just getting started? Let me help you build your confidence and portfolio at the same time. If you are new to modeling and nervous about doing a photo shoot, I'm the person you want to shoot with. I am very friendly, respectful and easy to get along with, and have worked with many people who are modeling for the first time. For those new to modeling, I have a technique I call "mirroring" that helps your posing be easy and fun!
PORTFOLIO BUILDING: Many people new to modeling as well as those more experienced have built their modeling portfolio using pictures from our photo shoots. I will be pleased to assist you in creating a compelling portfolio that shows your best attributes. If you want to start or expand your portfolio, or if you would just like to get some more enjoyable time in front of the camera, please let me hear from you!
AGE RANGE AND BODY TYPE: I enjoy photography with models of any age (under 18 requires parent be present), and 20, 30, 40, 50, 60+ encouraged. Please be free spirited, adventuresome and lighthearted, and be slender to very thin or have muscle definition. Girl-next-door or unique look is great!
WEIGHT LOSS, NUTRITION AND TRAINING: If you want to reach "model perfection" in a short time, I enjoy helping introduce committed people to a very fast method of doing so at no charge. The last picture in my portfolio is of a friend who used the program and went from 154 pounds at 5' 4" down to 109, and won a series of figure competitions. Also, see Hannah's figure competition picture compared with her earlier studio picture to see the result of six weeks on the program - radiant!
FITNESS PHOTOGRAPHY: As I am personally very much into training and nutrition, I especially enjoy doing fitness-style photography, celebrating the spirit and beauty of the healthy human form. If this is an area of interest, please contact me to discuss such a shoot!
COST: None! As I enjoy photography solely as a hobby, I do not charge for a shoot, and you will receive a CD of all the pictures for any use you like - for your portfolio, sharing with friends, whatever! If you like, your pictures will remain completely private. While my trade shoots are a collaboration, recently I have been paying a modest fee to models for shoots that I do most of the directing in for outfits and poses. Please contact me to learn more about either trade or fee-paid modeling.
VIDEOS: I have been experimenting with simple, elegant videos that showcase the natural beauty of an individual. If you would like to consider doing a video, with or without still photography, please let me know.
MODELS ON THIS SITE: *The pictures you see have not been retouched in any way.* If you want to work with anyone you see, please message me and I will get you in contact.
If you would like to explore doing a photo or video shoot, please contact me by using my e-mail below. Then we will set up a meeting at my office or at a coffee shop to introduce ourselves, share more samples of my work, and if all is well, plan for the shoot.
I am fortunate to do my studio work in one of our area's premiere studio facilities, and when we are in the studio, I play EDM to set the mood/ I also enjoy outdoor and on-location photography. If you have an idea for a photo shoot, or simply want to expand your portfolio and gain experience, please contact me! I hope we have the opportunity to work together... and please plan to have fun - I do!
