About Me

--Current Updates--
I am always looking for new models to work with. I will continue to always have a place for time for prints shoots.  These shoots give me the time and freedom to work on new technique, experiment with different equipment and explore new locations and settings.

Update 7/24/21 - I have been doing a lot of studio work as well as honing my off-camera flash. This means that if you need head shots or would like to do studio work (fashion, artistic, etc) this is the time to schedule a TFP shoot. 

--History/Bio--
After serving in the US Air Force, I found myself hurt and looking for work that allowed me to work around my physical disabilities. Having over 15 years of experience in creating websites I turned that into a career.  As a part of it I shot all my own images and textures but never wanted to or thought of myself as a photographer. In October 2014, my sister asked me to photograph her wedding.  Using a small point and shoot I did my best to capture all the important shots.  After delivering the images everyone around me started telling me that I should become a photographer. That Christmas my wife bought me a DSLR and with the urging and support of my family and friends, I started to learn the art of photography. That was more than a few years ago and I continue to learn and hone my craft every day.

--Style--
My style has become "real life but better", I love vibrant colors and retouch images to match the mood that the shoot is trying to convey.  I do not slap presets on my photos and call them good and I never deliver images that are not finalized nor do I give out my raw files unless an arrangement to buy them is made prior to the photoshoot.  My ultimate goal on a photoshoot is to make art that makes you and my work look their best. 

--What to Expect--
What to expect at a photoshoot?  I try to be a consummate gentleman, meaning I will treat you with the utmost respect and expect the same from you.  That being said, photoshoots are casual.  I want you to be comfortable so if we have to take some time and just talk before the camera comes out I am fine with that.  I have a philosophy that it is far easier to take good images of a comfortable model than an uncomfortable one. The awkwardness will shine through so I would rather take the time to make you feel comfortable than to waste a whole shoot.  This is especially important on my intimate shoots and I build in a lot of time when scheduling to accommodate the non-shooting time (Note: Intimate shoots are Paid Assignments unless otherwise agreed upon).
