About Me

[b]More of my work:[/b]

I'm a freelance photographer and art director in Emeryville, CA, right across the bay from SF. I primarily shoot portraits/headshots, lifestyle/editorial, boudoir, food, events, and promotional.

My personality is focused but easy-going. Models and clients who have worked with me constantly tell me how at ease they feel when I'm shooting with them. We have a lot of fun on our shoots, and we get great images. I collaborate with my models and clients to come up with a plan that will get us results everyone loves. See my verified credits for references.

I generally only do paid shoots but post and respond to occasional TF castings.

[b]The studio[/b]
I have a gorgeous studio in Oakland near Lake Merritt. It's perfect for just about anything you want to shoot, with tons of different options. In there I've done published fashion editorials, headshots, boudoir, and more. It's also available to rent for your own needs. Check it out:





I can shoot in the studio or on location. No matter where we shoot together, we're going to get some amazing images you'll be excited about. Let's go!
