"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter." - Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

Photography is the expression of the vision in the minds eye, and for me, an infinitesimal expression of just one billionth of who I am. I love it, dream about it, and see pictures and feelings floating through my heart and thoughts.

My specialty is outdoor shoots for adding a dynamic element to any model, dancer, or subject. I do indoor stuff as well. We can find a locale (indoor or outdoor), schedule a date, and shoot! I have assistants and a make-up artist on hand as well. My rates are for the session, (anywhere from 2-5hrs) - message me for rates. I pretty much just book the day for the shoot, and I'm all yours for that time.

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

I work with models, actors, and dancers for studio, dance, glamor, pinup, retro and portfolio-geared projects. I work on an outrageously reasonable fee premise, unless we both cooperatively agree the photos will add to both of our portfolios.

We can meet beforehand to talk about what you have in mind, and how you want to present yourself. We pick a location, a date, and that's pretty much it.
