Born in USA, 1970.
Professional photographer specializing in portrait, fashion, fitness, glamour, boudoir, pinups, and tasteful artistic nudes. I also enjoy doing senior pictures as well as commissioned some weddings to add to my portfolio. My goal is to offer the highest quality service while providing professionalism and comfort at an affordable price.
Portrait photography yields very positive results. Putting together a photo shoot is fun, but it also builds self-confidence and boosts ones self-esteem. The relationship starts from our initial introduction where we discuss our goals and then extends as we continue to communicate our ideas until that special day of our shoot. We work in a synergistic manner throughout the entire process and the beauty captured is archived forever. These images can be reflected upon at any time for personal reasons or they can be used as gifts for loved ones.
As a child, I enjoyed photography, but my true love for the craft became rejuvenated when my daughter was brought into my life. I felt the need to capture every available moment that we could share together. Later, in adulthood, I needed to make some sacrifices for career advancement, which caused me to move from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Columbus, Ohio photographing my daughter any chance that I could. In Ohio, I became involved photographing professional women's football working with the Columbus Comets on the sidelines. Shooting with the Columbus Comets. I quickly learned sports photography utilizing high shutter speeds in order to stop the action. I would travel to most games , where I closely observed women that had as much drive and love for the game as men do.
My interests later led me into the fitness industry, which allowed me to work with clients that were in excellent shape especially around competition time. Not only did I capture the sport, the fitness industry allowed me to extend my skills into fashion & glamour photography. I also gained some exposure photographic boudoir and artistic nudes an area that is more intimate, but an area where I was actually quite comfortable, probably from years of experience working with patients in the healthcare industry. Here one gains comfort, compassion, and caring often during more personal circumstances. Creative lighting and proper posing of clients is essential for obtaining the most flattering results and I really appreciate and respect the raw beauty that this type of work can offer for clients. Positive feedback from my female clients has been gratifying , so I intend to continue working in this direction.
I credit my wife, Lisa, for her loving support and thank her for referring several customers to me that have been tied to her fitness posing suit and spray tanning business. Lisa often assists me during photo shoots; she helps clients with makeup, coordinating outfits, and even offers assistance with posing. Lisa has been a muse for me since the beginning of our relationship and has been a favorite subject.
Various factors determine my fees: equipment cost/wear and tear, shooting time, studio rental, editing time and travel. I take a lot of pride in being very professional at all times, but have fun at the same time. I have a long list of references that are available upon request.
