I love photography. I first fell in love with it in 1983, when I was thirteen.  After spending a  considerable amount of time pursuing “more responsible” careers, I loved it so much that I made photography my full-time profession in 2006. As cliché as it may sound, you’ll work an awful lot harder doing work that you love. In the case of photography, I feel very fortunate to work at something that is so innately pleasurable to me.

It’s not just the photography that is pleasurable—the freezing of an instant, or the manipulating a scene through careful use of angle, color, light, composition, and staging, or pose and expression. The people I get to work alongside are amazing—collaborating to express the message they need from the photos. Every client and every job is different, and while I am happy to work alone on some jobs, I also welcome you to be involved in the whole process.  Contributing your own ideas and creativity will only make the images better. 

My clients and friends will say that I am congenial, cooperative, easy-going, and professional. I can tell you that I will go out of my way to keep a positive relationship with you, and ensure you are 100% happy with your photos.

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is the diversity of it. One day I’ll be shooting interiors with an award-winning Interior Designer and Architect team.  The next day I’ll be covering a few new listings for a Real Estate Agent. Another day I’ll be shooting an editorial about the entrepreneurs behind a Silicon Valley startup, or some product for a Kickstarter campaign. And in the Summer, I’ll definitely spend a few days on San Francisco Bay covering the Rolex Big Boat Series, or shooting advertising photos for a yacht charter company.

Today, I’d really love to hear about what I can do for you. 

Let’s begin that conversation!
