About Me

*** Be Bold or Be Gone ***

About me: I've been active in photography since the age of 3. Been shooting professionally longer than most of you have been able to walk and talk.

What have I done? I shot or directed a lot of commercial photo shoots in LA and New York for brochures, newspaper and magazine ads, directed commercial video shoots for business furniture, home exercise equipment,  jewelry, restaurants, shopping malls (South Coast Plaza), and luggage stores in LA and Las Vegas. I've also produced and directed a few short films (even starred in one, directed by someone else).

I've helped launch careers of several successful models and actresses and actors.

I prefer to shoot glamor. I don't have a textbook style of lighting or poses. I prefer models with some experience but I'm always happy to mentor beginners in front of and behind the camera.

I also write, having sold or optioned three motion picture feature scripts, unfortunately none produced.

I'm getting close to retirement, but I don't think I'll ever quit entirely as I'll always find a model I must shoot. So please, be that model. Contact me any way possible. NOW.

My head shots are not the standard everyone expects. I'll do head shots but don't expect them to work if you're looking for an agency. I'll shoot engagement couples, but not weddings or parties. I will do amazing corporate head shots, however.

This is the first of 2 pages and contains minimum nudity. If you like nudes, check out my other page :

You'll be glad you did. Give me some shout outs if you like my work and/or want to work together.

Please Read and Understand That:
1. I only pay female models to shoot if they will pose TOTALLY NUDE on a micro budget. I do NOT pay for implied nudes or fully draped models.
1a. I do not photograph male models. Actors? Always. Female Dancers? Always.
2. If you send me a request to shoot together and ask for payment, you're reached the wrong photographer. My life doesn't work that way.
3. If I respond to your casting call YOU should be prepared with a plan to shoot. If I have to come up with the ideas and wardrobe and/or an MUA/H, you're going to have to pay me.
4. I'll always be happy to fully collaborate on a TF shoot. If you're not paying me, or co-oping expenses, I'm the director on the shoot.
5. If I offer to shoot with you, be excited and happy. I won't be mad if you don't accept. Sometimes styles don't match. If you offer to shoot TF and if I turn you down, I might decline because our styles don't match. Don't get pissed at me, it's not personal, I don't know you.

Anything else is open for discussion. Best of luck to everyone.  Go look!
