About Me


This may need to be upfront and centre.


(unless you are going to make many specific requests and the shoot is going to be of little value to me, then my fees are reasonable)

I have no idea what I will be doing in 2018. Hope to shoot more. But the variety will be all over the place.

If you have a great look, and/or some great ideas, then please contact me. Anything that includes animals is of special interest. if you have a lion, tiger or wolf that you work with, then please, please contact me. Crickets, not so much. Goliath Spider, absolutely. But be aware that any shoots with an animal, the animal may get most of the attention.

My portfolio on my website shows my varied interests, the portfolio here and on Facebook show my interests with people, but is very limited compared to my personal website.

I prefer to shoot something other than the usual. If an idea is going to be a creative challenge, then I am very interested. To really get an idea of what I do, I strongly recommend visiting my website.

And YES my style is somewhat "no" style. I am truly eclectic. I shoot whatever hits my fancy at a particular time. From noir to moody to light and pretty. If I am paid, I will shoot any style that you want.

Personal website:

I only shoot test/creatives. If you have an interesting idea for us to work on, then bring it on, and lets see if it works. Any ideas that include nature/animals will tend to capture my interest.

Unless I know you, or you have worked with people I know, I usually want a face to face before actually planning a shoot. That's where we discuss ideas and decide if we will be comfortable working together. It allows both of us to decide if it is a good/bad fit, for whatever reason.

***You will get to see the selected (edited) 20 or so best images from the shoot, and from those you choose the ones that work for you. I will give you up to 5 finished images (processed), or 2 finished per look. You will get them as a small web ready file, as well as print ready file.***
