About Me

I am 62 years of age and try to regulate my travel.

I am based in Lake Elsinore but normally shoot between San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. I have encountered recent health problems Consequently, I am selecting projects on a case by case basis.

I have worked with both experienced and beginners. Most of the men and women have expressed appreciation for my direction.

MODELS:
As a consequence of entertainers and models approaching me to update their headshots, whenever possible I like to work with a Makeup Artist (MUA). Do not hesitate to contact me regarding an assignment. I will consider TF while I am working on poses, fashion and full body images. Themes are arbitrary with me as each model is different. I try to work with what each model has available. If needed, I bring additional clothing and accessories.

Occasionally, I maybe willing to pay for an experienced model, with a strong portfolio. Please understand, because I frequently shoot TF with published models, it is not unusual for me to reimburse a MUA for their work and cosmetics. Consequently, I am not inclined to pay for the services of a model.

MAKE-UP ARTISTS (MUAs)
I like to work with a MUAs whenever possible. I have learned to leave the make-up to the MUA. When working with me, I want the MUA to display their work with minimal interference. I always take several headshots during the photo session. I release all images to the MUA for use.

ESCORTS:
I shoot on location in natural light. Often in secluded areas. Do not feel embarrassed about requesting to bring an escort. Do not be surprised if I put them to work i.e. holding reflectors, carrying things, etc...

SHOOTING TIMES and COMPENSATION:
The majority of my photo shoots last two hours in duration. However based on the location, nature of the session, and the model's time constraints, the photo shoot may last 1/2 of an hour to five hours. Whenever possible, I provide all participants a chance to view the entire photo session that same evening.

EQUIPMENT:
I currently shoot with a 24.3 mega pixel, Sony a7 mirrorless digital camera. I use a 24.3 mega pixel, Sony a65 digital camera on the beach and in reserve.

PICTURES:
I do not shoot nude images. 'Edgy' images will not display sensitive (sexual) body parts.

The models and/or actors I work with frequently comment that they like the natural appearance of my images. I am open to most ideas, excluding sacrilegious and sexually explicit themes. As previously mentioned, I am currently working on posing and the wardrobe of the model.

Unless noted otherwise, I have conducted any retouch and/or edit of the images contained in my portfolio. There have been no other manipulations of the photographs.

UNDER AGE OF 18
Minors (under the age of 18) will always need to have parental involvement to work with me. For the safety of all underage models, I will need to receive approval from their parent or guardian prior to any photo shoot. All photography, involving a minor, will be conservative in it's scope. I have passed an extensive FBI background investigation and have been approved to work projects within a local school district.

THE MODELS:
Regarding the models, I have not worked with any that I would not work with again. All the models and MUAs listed in my portfolio have been extremely pleasant and easy to work with, including their escorts. I enjoyed working with each of them.

Four of the women in my portfolio, reached the contract stage for "America's Next Top Model." Several others have been published and/or expanded into other modeling and entertainment fields.

Unfortunately, I cannot display images of all the men and women who have taken the time to pose for me. However I remember them all.

Yes, that is me, "The Photographer." The picture was taken in 2010 at the Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma outside San Diego, California. It is the final picture inside my portfolio.

PERSONAL INFORMATION:
I am 62 years old and have been married for 29 years. I drink very little alcohol and I do not use illicit drugs. Please respect my feelings on this matter during the time we are together on the photo shoot. This includes your escort(s).
