About Me

Photography has been a hopeless addiction for most of my life.  That enticing moment occurred with the very first looked through the viewfinder of my father's camera.  Click! 

Since 1980, I recognized that a camera in hand acts as a magical net that is cast out to capture the essence of the human soul.  A portrait allows me to forever freeze a fleeting moment of time - a single expression - an implied thought - a permanent imprint of the human soul that resonates sometimes throughout the ages.

As the addiction grew, I realized that the enjoyment of the photographic arts came not in admiring the final print, but the entire process from start to finish.  I treasure the synergy that takes place with the photographer, MUA, stylist, and model.  The studio becomes a place of relationship and lasting friendships. 

In my extremely busy schedule, I spend a day out of the month to do TF work.  On these, I will put out a casting call with a specific theme in mind.  I try to make the shoot EPIC and grandiose in nature. 

As my technique and style evolves, I have to credit the countless number of mentors/teachers, fellow photographers, innovators, and camera companies who have equipped me with the skills to "paint with light." 

I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication I received from models, MUAs, and stylists in the past.  We're all in the industry together - striving to create beauty and hope in a world often filled with darkness and despair. 

I am always in collaboration with agencies, fashion designers, and MUA/HS schools.  My project rates are negotiable, but my hourly rate for photographic services is set at $200/hour.  Please feel free to contact me to discuss future projects.

Good luck in your career. 

Humbly yours,

Chiaroscuro Fotografia

The word, chiaroscuro, is an Italian word (clarity and obscurity) that describes the contrast between light and darkness.  Photography is all about capturing the choreographed "dance" between shadows and light.  I don't use elaborate settings or props.  Sometimes simplicity drives the greatest impact; however, I shoot with this vision of creating chiaroscuro in my images.
