About Me

***I suffer from a chronic illness which reduces my physical strength and can often change my ability to work without warning. However, I always to my best to shoot a booked session whenever possible.  Currently looking for assistants willing to help with the physical lifting/etc with on location shoots in return for experience.***


I am a professional photographer based out of Edmonton, previously associated with the PPOC and trained at NAIT, with well over a decade of experience.  I also work in Vancouver, Victoria, and Toronto throughout the year depending on my schedule.  Originally, my background is in digital editing, and I will take on specialty or editing jobs depending on the project.  I am currently booking limited sessions, in studio or on location.  For copyright protection reasons, I keep very little of my current portfolio online, so please feel free to contact me directly to see a more recent collection of my work (or to see images more closely related to the type of project you are interested in pursuing).  I am always available at [email protected]

I do occasional TFP projects to pursue areas of interest, update my portfolio, or to vet new models, MUAs, or hairstylists before booking paid work with them.  I do not book paid work with anyone I have not worked with TFP.

For Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists:
I generally require 1-3 TFP test sessions to establish your range and specialties, after which I will book semi-regular paid work and send paid referrals, depending on your abilities, interests, and availability.  I am ALWAYS looking for great makeup artists, especially airbrush specialists and anyone with a background in fantasy or special effects.  Hair stylists willing to work with props (flowers, beads, wire, etc) are preferred.  Print amounts for TFP vary depending on the type of shoot, but the normal ratio is 3 images of your choice for a 2hr shoot with typical makeup or hair.  This number goes up depending on special circumstances, such as special products or more involved work.

For Stylists and Designers:
I am not doing much fashion or commercial work these days but always welcome exposure to the new and fantastic.  For the right person, I'm more than willing to develop commercial portfolio material on a TFP or at-cost basis.  I am also actively seeking Jewelry and Accessory Designers, ideally to trade item rentals for commercial images.


For MODELS:

TFP - I generally will do a short (15-30minute) test shoot with a new model, in exchange for 1 fully edited image of the model's choice.  If we work well together, we will then discuss future TFP or paid assignments.  For certain models, I will do a 2 hour test shoot (with makeup), resulting in 3 edited images or 5 for nudes/implied nudes or for special circumstances.  Proofs are received within 24hrs of the shoot and images within 4 weeks, under normal conditions.

----
I am currently CASTING for portfolio peices to showcase my new, softer style.

Female models: prefer HWP (tho I will work with amazing plus size models), good skin and willingness to do nude/implied nude a plus; a unique look and obvious charisma are definitely to your advantage!  I have no height or experience preferences, and love working with everything from petite beginners to 6ft supermodels: personality is the big selling point for me. 

Male models: I work with very, very few men, however I will consider if not too heavily muscled, HWP, and charismatic.  Let me know what makes you special!
