I was born and raised in California. I went to UC Santa Barbara where I studied Business. I was enticed by the lights of Hollywood, relocating there as I aspired for a role as an actor and model. Later on, I eventually made a transition to the other side of the camera, working as a cinematographer and still photographer.
I love shooting just about anything. The feeling has been great, traveling all over the world, shooting beautiful models in the Rain Forest, Europe, Hawaii, and Mexico. What I can say about those shoots is that I’ve achieved pictures that are my personal favorites because of the breathtaking views I managed to frame in the photographs. I have had a studio for the past 20-plus years, as well as appropriate gear to travel to any location shoot you need.
I love the computer and I am an avid user of Photoshop. I have shot using just about every digital camera in the field and have settled in with Canon and Phase One for the perfect combination. We are also equipped with HD Video. We shoot with a Sony 3-chip HD and a smaller Canon HD. We have tracks, dollies, and a steady cam for just about any requirement you may have. With the proper tools, we aim to produce perfect photos thanks to the skills we gained through the years.
Over the years, I have been able to meet and work with some of the best make-up artists, stylist, and models in the business. I made it a point to touch base with the people I work with, especially those whose works I admire for their quality and precision. In the long run, I end up working with them because their portfolio speaks volumes about their level of professionalism. No wonder they are some of the most respected suppliers in the business today.
So whatever your needs, we can fill them. I have done graphic design and layout for hundreds of catalogues and ads. I can work with your people or can set it up all in house. You just tell me your needs and I will find the right supplier for your requirements.
It has been tough for everyone over the past couple of years so I make a point to work with everyone I can. Be honest with me on your budgets, and I will try everything I can to make it work for everyone. My hope is for you to be more than a one-time client, like most of my clients who contact me from time to time whenever they have a project in store for me.
Most of my clients I have had for 5, 10, 15, even 20 years. Shooting can be stressful, so the goal is to make it as fun and painless as possible. A great team we can easily accomplish that.
I look forward to working with you soon. Please email or call me with any questions you might have.
