About Me

I'm a new MMer, a beginner in the world of modeling photography and started this journey as a landscape photographer during my travels overseas (visited over 28 different countries thus far).

I’m a busy 31yrs old male, originally from the PacNW, & just returned to Portland after living in Los Angeles since graduating from Pepperdine University. Masters degree holder in business, I own a boutique eco advertising agency in Portland - with the dream that my photos are good enough for my own company & client advertisements so all photography will be done in-house (me). I also acquired AngelStatus.com under my company - Angel Status LLC.

I love international travel, live music (bass guitar), avid volleyball player, fast cars, a practitioner of mixed martial arts - all of which you may find infused into some of my shots.


I am very professional and not looking to date anyone from MM so feel free to ask me for references of any models/MUA's I've worked with in the past. Thanks for visiting my page and let'€™s make some angel image magic!


• Eyes! -- the 'gateway to the soul', big fan of capturing my model's eyes (my focal point).
• No ink please! -- Will most likely airbrush visible tattoos out (although some tattooed models I think are absolutely beautiful!). Got an angel wings tat? You're in!
• Clothes On! -- I do not do nudity shots.
• Black & White/Sepia is beautiful!
• Clean! -- Love the color white in my photos.
• Themed! -- Love the 'angel' and 'heavenly dream' type themes.
• Creative! -- Got Wings?
• Philanthropy! -- Favorite charity is Susan G. Komen for the Cure® breast cancer foundation.

Also, I like to create awareness of environmental issues!
All my present/future photos are dedicated to my late grandmother who was diagnosed with breast cancer.

• Victoria Secret's Angels
• Miss USA/Universe pageant types

• Advertisements from Calvin Klein, Polo, Abercrombie, Cartier, and Giorgio Armani
• My landscape favorites are Peter Lik and Ansel Adams.

I've worked for some of the largest magazine publishers in the world (in advertising, not photography) one of which I spent many years with Time Inc (owners of Sports Illustrated Magazine, In Style, People, etc ) & still in contact with the company. My dream is to get one of my 'angels' into SI or In Style magazine someday.
