My goal is to be well rounded and be able to do excellent work on all types of photography.
My specialty has been shooting models in the "real world" vs. studio -- so if it looks like she's standing by a spiral staircase or the bow of ship or the front of a 1955 Corvette -- she was. I am now doing more studio work. My long term goal is to be the best possible photographer I can be. I am very competitive and highly motivated. Working with me is fun and one of my primary motives for shooting is that pictures make people happy and are often good for the self-esteem of the models I shoot -- and that makes me happy.
I have been shooting digital since 2002 and models since 2008. I am self-taught and a fast learner. I have a passion for creating images that make me smile. People tell me I make them feel comfortable in front of the camera. Often comments I receive from models are "My mom saw the pictures you took of me and really liked them." I am literally mom approved. I provide my models with a CD of all of the images and edit selected images for posting. I give the models all the images because I believe it's a learning process where we learn together and reviewing all the photos vs. just a few is better to understand what works and what doesn't for both photographer and model.
I have recently started attending photography classes to fill in the gaps in my technique -- because being self taught can only take you so far. I've learned so much and I'm applying it on every shoot.
Pin-up Model KITTY WALLS also believed in me very early on and convinced me I needed to learn some photo editing. She was right.
