"The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."
Sylvia Plath

"I can't die. I'm booked."
George Burns

"My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time."  Steve Jobs - maybe this is why that last photograph was so important; it needed to capture that piece of it!

I am an experienced veteran in photography, and have photographed over 2000 models. I was the main fashion photographer for JC Penney in the 80's, and also worked on many fashion campaigns for Dept. Stores and agencies.

***I will work TFP/CD with most models  , however my hair and make-up teams do not 

*You are welcome to bring a make-up/hair and clothing stylists to our shoot, and if you feel you need a chaperone, that's OK also. However if you feel that you need a "body guard", I suggest that you work with a photographer that you trust instead.

As you can tell from my images, I am a very stylized photographer. My style differs, as it should, from most of the people you have worked with before. I charge a reduced rate for models, because I realize that funds are limited.

Photo shoots are meant to be fun; and typically they are - but there are some people that confuse photo shoots with Shakespearean Plays, bringing a lot of drama where it isn't needed. Lets' have fun, and create some great work - TOGETHER! Any shoot worth doing is worth doing well.
