About Me


I'm on a hiatus, sabbatical or taking a break, pick what sounds the best to you. I've closed my studio and I do very limited shooting on location, mostly paid jobs. I'm hoping to pick up my work again this year.

I'm mainly interested in darker themes of alternative fashion, goth and cosplay. I also shoot fitness, action (dance, pole dance, martial arts) and occasionally whatever random stuff that comes to mind. I do my own retouching.

Currently I shoot only on location or in my semi-industrial-chic loft apartment in San Francisco / SOMA.

I'm mostly doing trade unless I'm working for a paying client. That said I do pay models fairly when I have a project where I need a specific look.

For trade shoots I will provide 5 retouched photos within two weeks of the shoot. For paid shoots I unfortunately cannot commit to providing any photos unless specifically agreed beforehand. I usually do, but it might take longer.

I believe in good communication and keeping the promises made. I prefer MM messaging or email as it keeps things well organized. Once we've agreed on the shoot date/time I will require your phone number for last-minute changes.  I expect everyone to confirm their arrival the day before via email, text message or phone call.
