About Me

I've enjoyed quality photography for over 30 years.

After an extended period of absence, I find I missed the joy of working with others. So now I'm back doing fashion shoots and portfolios for both the fun and challenge.  Men, women, teens I just love the photo shoot and making it fun for everyone.
I also train other photographers in posing, lighting and Photoshop.

I'm told I am insightful and patient teacher so if you are getting started or a pro looking to strengthen your portfolio, we can work something out.

I especially like helping new models and aspiring photographers. It is great to see the enthusiasm they can bring to a shoot. If you are eager and willing to invest in yourself, I can accelerate your growth.

You'll fine I can help you get started or build your portfolio with ease. A two hour shoot can be as little as $125 and that time can be shared with another model too - no extra cost.

I'm not usually doing TF work but I do make exceptions. If you have access to a unique location, special props or other ingredients that lend themselves to a special shoot just try me. This is a passion for me, not a business.

In the meantime feel free to browse more stuff at

I also post casting calls on my FaceBook page so LIKE the page
and keep your eyes open for additional opportunities of interest.
