A little history about me, I will try to be brief but I make no promises on that. I was a musician until around 2009. Tired of the band scene, more tired of putting up with musicians, my wife at the time was an MUA. So I started seeing the pictures she was bringing home. AMAZED me!!! I was hooked. So I thought, what was something I was passionate about, because I knew whatever that was if I could capture that in a photograph then that’s what would make it art. The one thing I came back to every time was Music. I decided I would start shooting bands, instead of playing in them and dealing with their BS. Started shooting locally then started shooting national shows. Any band who toured through here from 2009-2014 I shot. I had an online entertainment magazine that I would review the concert for and of course for the bands PR peeps and I got to shoot their shows.
In 2012 I started getting the bug to shoot fashion and glamour, I LUVED IT!!! Every stage of shooting was great, coming up with ideas, wardrobe, props, lighting, Makeup, hair, shoes; even the post processing was ok. Well in 2014 Life decided to poke its ugly head into the picture, no pun intended, me and my 2 daughters moved out to face the world on our own. That was 2 years ago. I have survived the hiccup that life threw at me and I’m finally at a place where I’m ready to get back to doing what I LUV!!!
I am not here to tip-toe my way back into the photog world, I’m here to kick down doors and tear out the walls kind of shit. Any project I am involved in will be one of beauty, passion, emotion, noticeability and most importantly ART.
I am excited to work with you, as I said I love all aspects of shooting from the 1st ideas to the day of the shoot. I am here to work WITH you, not FOR you and vice-versa. Wardrobe, hair, make up (no I don’t do either one, lucky you, but I was married to one so I understand how it all works) Ha-Ha. Locations, themes, props etc. I’m here to work with you and collaborate with each of the artists that I’m shooting with.
My theory is Quality not Quantity so I put my all into the shoots I do, not only for myself but for everyone involved with the shoot.
Thanks for checking me out, can't wait to work with you,
