About Me

Thank you for visiting my page.  Please leave a tag or pic comment and I will do the same!

I am a known and well-traveled photographer who has traveled throughout the United States conducting photo shoots wherever I go. I like to work with anyone regardless of skill level, appearance or body type.  Photography is an art and I consider myself to be an Artist. I am a published photographer whose work has been featured in the magazine listed below:

SKYN Magazine: http://www.skynmagazine.com/features/#/free-spirit/

My goal is to find where boundaries exist and collide when it comes to Art.  Currently I am open to working with anyone, male or female, passionate about the art of modeling and the science of photography.  I lend myself to the approach of collaborative efforts, which tends to marry the creative process of both the model and the photographer.

I view photography as an outlet to express my creative self.  I appreciate the artistry of modeling and respect those who hone their craft.  To that respect, I will not reschedule with models or aspiring models who miss scheduled shoots or do not communicate in a way that is expected of people who are serious about their craft.

My shoots tend to be laid back and fun, back and forth dialogue with music playing to enhance the mood of the shoot.  I try and speak with the models beforehand to determine what I can do to help make their experience enjoyable and worthwhile. My preference is that when we schedule a shoot, we schedule a time YOU KNOW YOU CAN MAKE. My biggest pet peeve is when someone doesn't place the same value on my time as I do. Lately I have been fortunate enough to work with highly professional models.

Feel free to suggest any concepts and themes you may want to work on and provide feedback on the images and the experience.  My goal is to create a collaborative stunning port while meeting the client's needs.

Please view my credits and praise to verify my Professionalism. I look forward to working with you.

How to get ready for a photo shoot

Step One:  Look taller.

First off you need to think like a model and whenever we think of models we normally think of runway models and lets face it 70% of the models I shoot or see on Model Mayhem are not 5'9" or taller so how can a 5'2" girl look like she's this tall and modelesk?  Let's start by looking at the really tall models Let's take a model that's 6'2", put any dress on her and it looks short. I'll go one step further. Go into any department store and check out the mannequins. First off they are on platforms that are about 6"-12" off the ground. Now if you ever see one that's undress and getting ready for the next dress line. Jump up there and check out where her hips fall I did and her hips where 6" higher than mine and I was standing on my toes to mimic wearing high heels and you guessed it I'm 6'2"! I know that was a long roundabout way to explain why you should be wearing short dresses to look like a model, but if you know how they are creating that long leggy look then it will be much more convincing for you to be shopping for shorter dresses. (now if you're wondering why the industry does this to get you to buy more dresses if a dress is too long it makes you look doughty so you'll go out and buy another dress, in hopes  that you will look more like that mannequin).

Step Two: Make your feet look smaller.

Let's face it models that are 5'9" to 6'2" have big feet, so how do they hide that fact? Well they wear really high heels to shorten the profile of the foot, plus they wear very minimalistic shoes to make their feet look as small as possible, so if you wear platform shoes, that screams, I'm short. So make your foot look as small as possible.

Step Three: Don't come to a shoot with any markings.

There is nothing worse than going to a photo shoot and putting on a beautiful dress with matching high heels, and having marks around your ankles from your socks  and having bra strap marks when the dress is strapless, everyone has the ability to leave indentation markings when they wear tight clothing and especially during the winter months when everyone's skin is just a little dryer. If you think of movies and TV shows that portray models before a shoot most of the time they are wearing sweats that are rolled up at the ankles and the waist, that's not to show off their stomachs but rather to avoid marking up their bodies. One last thought on marking every once in a while I get a model that comes to the studio, just the way I asked and come to the photo shoot bra less but when I put them in that strapless dress, oops there are those nasty bra marks that's because, some models sleep with their bra on, so if you do that please do not sleep with your bra on the night before the photo shoot.

Step Four: Wear your makeup normally.

(Some MUA prefer that you have foundation on.) Pretend that you have no blemishes at all and put on your makeup as if you have perfect skin€¦ because any blemishes that you do have, I'll remove in Photoshop, but I can't fix caked on makeup and make it look like perfect skin. And always bring super high gloss lipstick even if you don't normally wear lipstick.

Step Five: Bring clothing with loud vibrant colors.

Girls that are wall flowers wear dark, muddy patterns that allow them to be shy and hide in the corner and blend into the background. That's not what a model is about, or look like. They have the confidence to wear bright bold colors and they're not afraid to be noticed or for that matter to be the center of attention. So to show your self confidence, you need to act like a model and wear bright loud outrageous clothing not the standard uniform that corporate America wants you to wear IE: jeans, tee shirt and sneakers (when the big chains sell that cool tee-shirt to you for $9.99 well it only cost them $0.04 to $0.08 to make and $0.10 to ship here from the Orient. It's about making as much money as possible and putting out as little money and effort as possible Wall Street has designed a system for you to stay that shy wall flower and to keep buying clothing that doesn't make you look your best.

Step six: come to a shoot prepaired with the right tools.

Never come to a shoot with chipped nail polish!!! That means toes too. A clean French nail will not clash with any clothing that the designer will throw at you. Always have a set of nude color undergarments, and preferably a lace bra that fits well. Never wear a hard edge bra, it will show that edge line in solid color silk blouses and dresses.

So let's go out there and show them that we are confident, attractive and smart people and not willing to play along in their dog and pony show to make them filthy rich.
