About Me

I have moved to the Jersey shore area.  Living in Barnegat, NJ now & 20 minutes to Long Beach Island. 

Photography is my passion, I try to capture the feel, the essence - the very being of my subject. I am a self taught photographer.  My images reflect me (not technically perfect) but always showing signs of my passion and sense of beauty).

My summer obsession is underwater photography.The juxtaposition of serenity and chaos, under and above the surface enthralls me.  There's a quality of inner peace that is ethereal.  Plus it's a lot of fun while being challenging.

I created an underwater art book, it is available NOW in softcover.  just add water.

When the chill is in the air, it has me moving indoors, venturing into the sensual realm of boudoir, bath and showers.  If that is something you are interested in let me know.

I work TF (time for images)  on my personal projects, or if the concept is one that will enhance your portfolio as well as mine.  Headshots, portraits, bump, baby & beyond are paid assignments. My fees are reasonable and I try to work within your budget. 

Seeking models who can emote; bringing a deeper sense of who they are to the shoot by having emotions shine through their eyes as well as facial expressions.  People who enjoy the process of creating great images as much as I do. I am looking to work with both new models as well as experienced models (TF).

NOTE:  Seriously, I'm not on this site to build an extensive friends list, so please don't be offended if I don't friend you. I do minimal retouching on my own images, I'm the type of photographer that believes what goes into my sensor is pretty much what comes out. Although I admire retouchers' skills, I do not use their services, so I will decline friend request.  I friend people who are interested in working with me or I with them, people who have made contact or people I have worked with.  People who are so creatively gifted, that I can't wait to see more of what they do.
