About Me

Two Time Emmy Nominated and One Time Emmy Winning Photographer / Photojournalist based in San Tan Valley, Arizona.

Please carefully read my profile below before sending me a travel notice telling me I need to pay you for the privilege of photographing you. I do NOT offer paid shoots. I also do not charge and I can guarantee  that my rates are much more than yours. 
Also to RETOUCHERS, I'm NOT INTERESTED, so do not waste your time pitching to me.

Hello and welcome to my little portfolio of photographic work. Although this portfolio does not fully depict my more than 40 years of experience and hundreds of great people I have had the blessings to work for and with, I think I can show that I am far more than a guy with a camera.  I am not a photographer who will pay you for the privilege of photographing you then handing over the fruits of my labor in photography and editing. I am not an image collector, even of my own work. I've worked hard for more than 40 years to build a business providing a service.  Now that I am semi-retired from this genre and only offer my time and hard work as Trade, I don't cut corners and I don't have a need to hire models or retouchers.

Yes you will find I have shot nudity, erotica and many other things as well, as I do not want to box myself in to one category. 

As I stated above NO LONGER do Modeling photography for profit. While I have spent Hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last 40+ years, I made only a fraction of that back as a photographer shooting models.  My main income is in fine art scenic photography which I sell on another site and as an Emmy Award Winning Videographer working in broadcasting full time.  While the techniques are generally the same across the board I find my best work does not show people at all.  Why do I still do this portfolio work? Simple, it is an artistic outlet from my day in and out job, and replaces the Fine Art now and then when I cannot travel to the places I'd rather be.

What can you expect from me? Simple. Professionalism as I stay behind the camera, and work hard on delivering fine images to you rapidly so you can grow your portfolio the way you want.  I do release all work we collaborate on immediately and iI supply Edited work as well.  I coach when needed, and I listen to you and your thoughts so that I can best do what will excite you and help you in your journey.

If you don't want nudity, that's fine, I never demand it anyway. I love shooting on remote location with themes that fit the location, indoor or out. I have very limited availability though, but I don't waste time at all. I focus on the work I am needed to do and treat you ask you want to be treated. 

Give me a chance and just ask me questions. Ask many questions. I openly collaborate with a model's ideas and do what I can to make the shoot fun, safe and positively memorable. I want you to be able to profit from what we collaborate on in your future.
