About Me


About the Photographer
I am an internationally published photographer who has recently relocated to Corvallis Oregon. My style is a collaboration of the mystique of beauty and the freedom of fashion. This fusion of styles leads to a rich and vivid image, which is not only powerful and bold, but it is also elegant and beautiful.

Nearly all the work done by the studio involves people in front of the lens in some respect, even though what they are wearing or using may be the focus of the image.  These images capture the essence of the subject, a beauty that most people only see in a fleeting glance. That one moment where the observer sees the true beauty of a person that makes them realize a special feeling of love, admiration, joy, awe, intrigue or any combination of these powerful emotions. These are the sensations that I feel through the lens.

I am always interested in meeting fellow photographers, Make-Up Artists, Stylists, Models etc to network, discuss our art, and make great contacts in this business. If you are a model or stylist in or around the Willamette Valley send me a message or leave a comment. Even if I do not require your services at this time, I am sure I know someone who does.

About the studio

Located in beautiful Corvallis, OR, MA Photography has one of the world's most beautiful locations as a backdrop for its innovative work.

In addition to our regular services, we occasionally host specialty shoots at the studio, so anyone in the industry who happens to be close by may find a good opportunity at one of these events.

A bit on TFP
From time to time I will be working on personal projects and accept TFP for those interested in working on those projects, or those who present a project idea that really captures my interest.

If I am paid for a shoot by a client, then all who are a part of the project are paid.  I do not accept paying gigs and then "hire" a bunch of TFP staff.  I have meet many models, MUAs and Stylists on this site that I have "donated" my services to, loved working with them, and later used them on a paying shoot.

Please be aware what TFP means.  It is an exchange of a model's time for prints.  A professional photographer will be carrying upwards of $25K in gear and have invested many years into honing their art.  In addition, professionals will edit your photos and make them print ready.  Even the most attractive and "flawless" individuals have flaws at very high resolutions.  It takes many hours to produce a real work of art.  For me personally, for every hour of a model's time, I put in three hours (one on the shoot and two in editing).

I do appreciate that you have invested time and money in getting to where you are and I expect the same.  If you REALLY have no money and are trying to better yourself, willing to work at your best, and can genuinely appreciate what you are getting from your photographer, MUA, stylist, model etc, Then we will all get a lot out of the shoot.

Current project interests

I am looking to update my portfolio on here with more editorial/fashion work.  To that end, I have compiled a few ideas that I would love to explore. (these are in thought order and not in order of interest)
1. Swisuit shoots
2. Shoots with aircraft
3. Forms and Shadows
4. Highly contrasting skin tones or anything that really
    focuses on the concept that any feature is beautiful.
5. Several shoots with the same initial theme concept.  I 
    want to see how differently they will evolve with differrent
    crews.  Especially with a very well know idea like "A
    diamond in the rough" or something like that.

I will add to this as I come up with new ideas.
