About Me

I love my camera, and I get twitchy if I go too long without shooting! ;P I'd love to connect with models/designers in the Orange County area.

Currently, I am open to TF work with models who meet the following criteria:
* willing to sign commercial/stock releases
* clearly emotive and expressive
* thorough in their communications
* arrive on time.
Bonus points if you can provide costume-like wardrobe!

When we do TF work together, you will receive at least 5 retouched images from a shoot, and you may purchase additional retouched images, if you choose. Images will be web-sized and watermarked, and you may purchase watermark-free prints for about the cost of purchasing prints from a local printer.

Please PM me if you would like to work with me. While I would love to offer TF to all models, I do work 40 hours a week, so if I cannot fit you in my TF schedule, I will reply to your PM with my rates.


I prefer to shoot outdoors/in natural light. My general availability is evenings and weekends.

I would particularly like to shoot:
* alternative clothing product style photography (think plastic wrap, toxic vision, and independent DIY labels)
* portrait
* headshot
* editorial
* couples
* fashion
* lifestyle
* punk, steampunk, retro, rockabilly, or fantasy


TF is done differently by every photographer. Here's how I do it:

1. We shoot and you sign a model release

2. I upload small, watermarked proofs of the best photos from our shoot to my website

3. You look through the photos and choose which are your favorites. I will allow around 5 selections (depending on how many images we shot, how many different locations and outfits, etc).

4. I retouch the photos you chose, and provide the web-size images to you, along with a link to a gallery where you can purchase prints if desired.

5. Any photos I choose to retouch (that you did not choose) I will also provide the web-size images to you, along with a link to a gallery where you can purchase prints if desired.

6. Any other photos you want to keep can be retouched for a fee ($10 each).

7. I do NOT send a cd of all the unretouched photos from the whole session. Because I want the images to be retouched in a way that adheres to my style, this is non-negotiable. I will only make available the retouched photos that you and I chose, and those that you purchase.

I do not send out the full-size, watermark-free digital files. I have had too many instances of models posting these watermark-free files to social media, where my work is compromised. However, you may purchase affordable prints for your print portfolio, if desired.

8. I will send your photos promptly (usually within 3 weeks), most likely through email/download links rather than CD, since it's easier and faster for both of us. I have model friends, so I know how awful it is to pose for a shoot and never get your photos.
