About Me

Throwing caution to the wind
As I said in a previous version, I LOVE TAKING PHOTOS. Its my favorite part of my current job, even though the novelty of taking news photos is starting to fade after 22 years. On the flipside, I still get giddy and excited at the prospect of having even a short photoshoot with my fiance, a local friend or an amateur model. When I can pair that with a beautiful day or a beautiful shoot, it fills my heart in ways I can't verbalize.
I'm not trying to make you think I'm anything I'm not. I'm not a published fashion photographer, I don't own a $75,000 studio and my best camera is almost a decade old.  I'm just a middle-aged guy who is moved by beautiful people, places and things and I'm still learning every day how to capture what I see.
I'm entirely envious of photographers like Michael Sasser, Pierre T. Lambert, Irene Rudnyk, Scott Robert Lim and Evan Sharbeneau because it's obvious they're doing what they love and that they know wtf they're doing.
As for me, I'm currently stuck in a place where I don't belong, at a job that no longer appeals to my creative heart and spending most of my time just trying to survive financially- and it sucks. My heart breaks every time a beautiful day escapes and I couldn't find anyone to help me put together a short photoshoot.
So if you want to just do something- let's go out and shoot. Anything, I don't care- I just feel like if I don't break out of my shell, I never will and the windows of opportunity will close on me. I can't pay you because I can barely afford gasoline these days.
I know TFP is a bit of a taboo word here, but it's the only card I have.
All I can offer is to share my time and art. I promise that you will find me respectful and patient at all times, as well as alert and mindful of your safety and security. Also happy to work with LGBTQ models, and can travel to Del Norte, Shasta, Siskiyou, Mendocino, Modoc, Lassen, Modoc and Lassen counties for paid shoots. However, I don't do weddings, pets or baby photos, sorry.

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots in Melbourne until March 4th. I'm currently working with other photographers to do remote/virtual shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear & do more on location remote shoots. I have a city central apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna as well as the indoor concreate fire escape. My rates for remote shoots are less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for & if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop & screen share so you can control the settings/shots. We can chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
