About Me

I have been shooting since I was 12. My grandfather & I spent time looking at slides he took while vacationing, that moment in time frozen, it never aged, still hasnt even though the people in those slides are now gone. It still amazes me, he bought me my first camera at the age of 13. 35mm w/ flash umbrella & bulbs (yes bulbs) electronic flash was just released but expensive. From that day on I have a camera with me at all times and have been shooting & processing for 30 years.

I tend to live on the edge and expect that from my models. I can be demanding but at the same time respectful. I strive for perfection. I always bring it & I expect the same. I'm open to just about anything. If you're looking for a certain shot, I'll find a way to make it happen.

I'm willing to pay for talent but will shoot for print most times. Here's the bottom line & most Photogs can relate to this. When you meet with a real photographer (not a guy with a camera) he's probably carrying expensive equipment. We want to know what your work ethics & how well you work in front of the camera, are you comfortable etc... There have been many models I've called back for paid shoots.

I have a studio and work outdoors, its up to you where you would like to shoot. If we plan on something outdoors & perhaps its raining then we can move indoors. Wisconsin brings cold weather so indoors may be preferred. It depends on the look we are trying to capture.

I work with makeup and hair artists on a regular basis. Building profiles, portfolios always need to be done. Feel free to hit me up anytime with ideas you may have.

I have no objections to an escort if you feel one is needed. All I ask is they don't interrupt the shoot.
