About Me



Please visit to see my entire portfolio and current work.

My experience as a skilled professional spans over two decades. Throughout that time, I have shot everything from tabletop, jewelry and still life to architectural interiors, album covers, editorial fashion and fine art. I have been equally comfortable with all of it, but by far, the largest body of my work has been photographing people for advertising, editorial, corporate and entertainment industry clients.

As with any artist, I want my work to grow, evolve and move in new directions. That said, I would like to:

Continue doing portraits with more of an illustrative / theatrical / cinematic / film noir feel to them, and to create strong, edgy images through the use of light and shadow, movement, humor and spontaneity, and . . .

Work with people who are visually striking and inspiring to be with, and who like to collaborate on projects that are challenging, creative and imaginative.

Having a sense of humor is a bonus!

Paid photo shoots are a priority, but I will consider testing in special cases.
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. I'm open to the possibilities that can be discovered.

I walked into your studio as a person who was looking for a corporate shot for my job and walked away with that and many other fun shots...and feeling like a super model! My first photo shoot and I was quickly put me at ease with your warm, kind, and positive attitude. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful pictures of me! You made me feel so relaxed, playful and special! You truly are a professional who knows what he is doing, and you have an ease about you that made me so relaxed.
