About Me

Located in beautiful Victoria, B.C.
Glamour and Fashion shoots for model portfolios and print.
Fine-art, commercial, portraiture, head-shots,fitness, swimsuit, casual are all areas with special requirements that I have worked in, plus a few.


I like to put my own unique style on photographic imagery and my goal is to bring you something special for your own portfolio/requirements.

Never happier than being creative in the studio or on location. Working with  models who are motivated to try to really create some inspiring images is a wonderful thing and if you think that's you, then message me and we can talk.

Feel free to contact me with your ideas, I am open to collaborating with the goal of creating something original or helping you put your own stamp on a particular look .

If you want to shoot, message me, I'm pretty laid back and easy to talk to!

I shoot in a wide variety of styles as this appeals to many different types of  models/modeling work from artistic to swimsuit to fashion and also keeps it fresh and interesting to me as an artist. Take a peek through my portfolio and you will probably find something that suits you or you want to try.

I wont waste your time so please dont waste mine by being a bad communicator.

PLEASE NOTE: This portfolio only represents my model/modeling work and is only one facet of the work that I am passionate about. I also do weddings, Family, baby, pets, equestrian, etc..

Photo retouching also available. Feel free to inquire about rates. I have no problem working within a person's budget.


*Being a lover of natural light and an outdoors kind of person in general, I have done tons of location/natural scenery based images with the model as a subject, both for models and landscape/scenery prints. Weather permitting, of course, this is always a nice addition to your portfolio and a lot of fun to shoot.

**For those looks that simply cannot be achieved by reliance on natural light, I also have a fully equipped studio with a professional lighting system, allowing us to sculpt with the light and add the accents of color and shadow-play that make for unique images and also allows for control over the light instead of having to adapt to it.

Photo retouching also available. Feel free to inquire about rates. I have no problem working within a person's budget.

NOTE TO RETOUCHERS ON MM: I have no interest in paying someone else to do my finishing work (particularly if they have NO formal training). If I want/need to add digital art, I am hooked up in my own town for anything that is beyond me.




***I often work with an assistant to maximize our efficiency in the studio or on location.


****VERY easy to communicate with and appreciate the same in return. Being a flake isn't a very good way to make your mark in a competitive field like modeling when its easy to just reply or show up on time, It IS however a good way to miss out on paying jobs as a result of being known for unreliability.


Published in a wide variety of magazines, catalogs and print publications

Random notes:  I have  studied art for years and am an accomplished gemstone cutter and carver and do silver and goldsmithing as well when I have the time, which there never is enough of.


B+W photography and its soulfulness is something I admire and enjoy working with but I also love  to capture the realism of color .

Here's  an interview I had the pleasure of doing with my good friend, roomate and accomplished model Aviva (she also writes for the Model Edu Library here on MM), you can get a better understanding of my views on photography here (if you care to), plus,some interesting interviews she did with celebrities and great articles in general!

Hello :) I saw you sent me a friend request to my page. Just wanted to send out a "Hi" back! I don't use MM much anymore (I don't want to play the game with their new policies), so I would rather connect over email please :)

If you'd like to set up a shoot, please email me to [email protected] I do not schedule shoots outside of email. I would appreciate it if you could link your MM or another portfolio where I can see examples of your past work. Please inclue in your email a description of what you would like to shoot, and preference on location (your studio, hotel, outdoors... etc).

I am based in St. Petersburg, FL but I am able to travel with advance notice. I have a list on my page of cities I am planning on visiting in the upcoming future. If your town isn't on the list, let me know what you'd like to shoot and we can work out a budget and such and I can make my way to you sometime! :)

If you find yourself in Tampa, FL... we have our home set up as a shooting space.

If you would like to follow me, please add me:
