About Me

Hope all is well have not been shooting much this year and studio have become a storage site during this virus looking to shoot again soon might be last year if this lockdown keeps up.

I’m a freelance photographer part time. The art of photography has always been my passion since I was in my early teens when introduced to it by my father. Since I work my Engineering job to pay the bills I can explore the creativity of photography at a pace I like. The thing I like most about photography is that feeling when you give a beautiful photo to someone and you see that happy look in their face. I’m a laid back photographer that is easy to get along with. I like to find models that are easy to work with and that want to try to get that perfect images and poses.
    I’ve been to many workshops over the years and have learned a great deal from so many photographers but out of all these the best Mentor and friend I have made is with David Mecey. The style and work ethic he has shown me over the last couple of years has been great! All the other photographers I have been able to meet and work with have also taught there styles of photography but with each person we all end up finding the style we like or work towards incorporating into our own style. David has one of the best workshops and experiences I have ever been able to go to!
    I have also learned from the following photographers over the years also. Arny Freytag, David Mecey, Jarmo Pohjanieme, Byron Newman, Steve Wayda, Ric Moore, and Ales Bravnicar while at the STC workshops. I have also been able to learn from Brian B. Hayes which was also a fun experience and the intensity was also fun to see and learn from. I was able to learn from Blue Lotus Arts while in Fort Lauderdale at OMP. I’ve also been to a workshop present by Russell Hoyt dealing with water photo shoots which were fun learning how to use water in a glamour photo shoot. Every one of these photographers was great to work with and learn from. I have been very lucky to meet each one these artist and masters of their craft.
    Currently I’m looking to work on the concepts I have learned and to continue on to the next level in my photography. The goal I also have is to build a group of local photographers, MUAs, and digital artist to build a studio where new models can come to for a good and safe experience in modeling.
    I currently live in RI but rent my studio space in Attleboro MA. The Studio I shoot out of has several sets to shoot on. I’m also able to help other photographers to share my knowledge and to learn from them as well. I believe that working together we can take our photos to the next level of quality.
    If you want to do a photo shoot give me a message on here. I will do TFP/TFCD and paid shoots. I want to work with people that are serious about getting great photos. I prefer models that do not flake out and want to be professional.
    Contact me if you want to do a photo shoot. I'm avail several days a week to do photo shoots. I'm also working at getting my own business started so looking for models all the time to work with so I can build up different looks and make posing guides at the studio to help new models.

I've been back for a little while now and looking to shoot with more models this year. Coming back I have noticed models posting for paid jobs and having their own release which basically says in most cases the photographer has to release the rights to the photo to the model. First off I do not sign a models release on a shoot I'm willing to pay the model for. Second the photographer shooting a paid photo shoot is looking to either have images that in some way they want to at least make back the money they have already paid so they can keep having paid shoot. I you don't trust the photographer to use the images in a way that reflects you as a model in a professional light move on to another. With that being said I make sure to have a model release that is fair to all parties involved. The only way I will release the rights to all photos if I'm hired for the photo shoot since I'm being paid for the assignment.
