About Me

Hello and welcome! 

I welcome discussion with newcomers as well as veterans for collaborative sessions in new areas as well as familiar ones.  I do paid assignments, portfolio enhancement, as well as TFCD work with clients and models in the greater Chicago area, and I take my work seriously (though not to excess!), striving to give my best on every shoot! 

My studio is in Aurora, IL (which I expect to use more now that the weather is COLD) but I really enjoy location shoots!  They are challenging and rewarding for me, and greatly appreciated by my clients and models. Sure, it’s nice to produce great shots in a perfect environment, but getting great shots in dying light, a limited venue, or with very limited time or resources is something I embrace and enjoy!

I am open to a number of different types of work as I like to challenge myself, including (but not limited to) fashion, glamor, commercial, artistic, fantasy, and promotional as well as personal/private work such as portraits, engagement photos, budior and the like.

Unfortunately, I only do this part time, so my availability varies.  However, when I commit to a shoot, you can be sure it will happen! (Barring Tornado, Tidal Waves, Earthquake or people not showing up!)

My goal is the comfort of EVERYONE working on the project... and of course, getting great shots!  I create a very relaxed environment for my subjects and am have a great track recod in working with individuals new to the camera. 

The way I see it, a model that is comfortable and having fun produces genuine smiles, relaxed expressions and ultimately, wonderful work!  While that doesn't mean that we might not stretch a little, I prefer that everyone is enjoying themselves!  Sure, it's work, but I like it to be FUN as well!  (And Yes, I love to interact with the model... often with REALLY bad jokes!)

Yes, I hire models, Makeup Artists and Stylists for paid shoots (when I'M being paid of course), but I do give preference to people I've worked with before, and know I can count on.  (It's one of the reasons I do so many TFCD shoots!)

Yes, I will work with models/subjects under 18, but, for both our safety, I do require that a parent is present during shooting.  Sorry, but no exceptions.

Yes, I welcome escorts for models over 18 if you desire, especially if it's our first shoot, though I do ask to be notified ahead of time.

My typical turnaround is about a week for first-pass shots, and about 1-3 weeks,  for detailed touch ups, depending on the number involved.  My website makes that, as well as ordering prints, if you so desire, quick and easy!

I can be contacted by email ([email protected]) or by Private Message here, but for safety and fairness I only book shoots by phone (630-452-3563).
