About Me

Stunt Coordinator / Fight Choreographer turned Cinematographer/Photographer. I shoot primarily model and portrait photography either in studio or on location depending on the concept. I also enjoy shooting concerts, festivals and cons.

I am available for creative projects for advertising and promotional material such as movie posters, book covers, album covers etc... I do my own photoshop work and can shoot, edit and finalize images to suit your needs.

My rates are reasonable for shoots and projects and I'm willing to negotiate so please don't hesitate to ask.

TF* - I am also willing to do TF* work on concepts/ideas that interest me and/or with models with whom I want to work. For TF I will provide models with a proofs sheet of keepers from the shoot within a reasonable time and then 1-2 edits per look that we shoot. I will also require a release at the time of shooting.

12/28/2018 Update: Goal for 2019 is to start shooting more regularly again with the intent to submit images to various publications and art shows. I am looking to collaborate with local models in addition to the traveling models coming through SE Michigan.
