About Me

GOAL 1: Is to record beauty.  I seek out the beauty in people, objects and nature to capture precious moments.  I shoot photos for the joy of creating these beautiful images.

GOAL 2: Get the best possible images.

GOAL 3: Help aspiring models develop a portfolio, gain confidence, and get a start; meet interesting people; always be respectful; always have fun.

GOAL 4:  To make the subject as comfortable and at ease as possible.  The models comfort shows in the pics.

I most like shooting with people I can call friends - even if that means we've only known each other for an hour or two. I'm professional - but if we can't go away from a shoot feeling like we've had fun and laughed a little, I don't see the point in doing it.  I’m too old for a dull day, I may not have another.

I am a photographer and not a digital artist.  I respect both forms of art, but prefer very little editing.  I feel if the shot needs editing more than a simple crop, light correction and touch up then I have not done my job.  I want the shot to look real and not fake.

I have been a freelance photographer for 40+ years. I started out using film, and as many photographers did,  I resisted the switch to digital photography. But once I used a digital camera, it was love at first site.  During this time I have shot many models and actors/actresses portfolios.    Shooting model portfolios is an art, and putting your subject comfortable and at ease is extremely important to get the best images. 

I love color, bright and expressive outfits, but you also can't beat the little black dress.

I shoot studio in bad weather and both studio and outdoors when weather is good.  I love lakes, streams, rocks, cars and all the beauty that the outdoor provides.  I am also willing to shoot the models ideals, keeps me from getting in a rut.  Have an idea, let’s shoot it.
