About Me

[quote=Elliott Erwitt]"Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment."[/quote]

I grew up back and forth between Phoenix and Chicago. I came to Southern California for a multimedia degree from California Lutheran University and quickly decided L.A. would be my new home. After many years in the film and sports broadcast industry, the photography itch finally took its toll and I have been able to work it into my busy schedule. I love to shoot anything and everything. I love hearing new and exciting ideas or just getting out with a new subject and creating something great. Get me involved!

[b]Why I am here:[/b]
Very simply: I'm here for an artistic outlet.  I'm here to make art.  I'm here because I believe I have a great eye for making beautiful things/people LOOK beautiful and awesome.
If I Tag you or send you a Friend Request, chances are I think you (or your work) are beautiful and want to collaborate with you to make some great art.

I RARELY PAY MODELS.  This is not because I don't think many of you are beautiful and talented and worthy of compensation for your work, but rather because I currently have no commercial need for images and will not pay for images that I have no desire/opportunity to profit from.  If I have a paid gig, with a paying client, I will pay models for their time.  If I sell the images, I will pay models.  Other than that, understand that if I contact you to shoot, it's merely for the purpose of creating images for US.
I do a lot of TF* work and am more than happy to help you expand your portfolio.  If, however, you are seeking to work with me because you want headshots or have a specific project in mind that I don't think will necessarily benefit my portfolio, I'll be happy to provide you with my rates for such work.

With respect to TF* work, I generally like to shoot as many different looks, in one day, as possible.  Most of the models I shoot with will get anywhere from 3 to 7 different looks.  What that means, however, is: that when you work with me, you're gonna be here awhile!  Please don't book a shoot with me at 3:00 if you have plans at 5:00. 

Although my photography is in it’s infancy, I hope to continue to add to it every week with my latest work.

[u]I feel a picture can be great and beautiful without completely exposing yourself. Sometimes its what you don't see that makes it even better... I'll do "sexy", but I'm not into unwarranted nudity[/u]
