About Me

I started shooting photos in the film only era. My mentor settled for nothing short of perfection. Mediocre wasn't in her vocabulary. Additionally, my mother modeled for Dayton's department stores in the 40's, and was a Pin Up model for Bill Medcalf at Brown and Bigelow in Minneapolis. I enjoy recreating some of her works in her memory.

As a result, I look for more than just a nice photo; I try to find the model's unique look: from a sparkle in the eye to that special smirk. As a former athlete, I know what to look for in action or sideline shots that will provide fond, lasting memories. Each shoot is as unique as the individual and as a result shouldn't mirror another. While a familiar pose or location can often be used, each shot should be treated as new and exciting.

I have no problem with models wanting to bring an escort or a friend that will help them feel more comfortable with to the shoot; I actually prefer it. Often times when ideas come from the friend, we create a team concept that simplifies the process of achieving the best photos possible.

When two models do a shoot at the same time, I can work with one model, while the other is preparing for their next segment with very little wasted time.

All models receive copyright privileges from every shoot, which is customized to meet or exceed the models expectations and requirements. My rates are very affordable!

I also provide portraits of your favorite pet, be it a Bernese Mountain Dog like my Monty, or a Guinea Pig named Kow.

In addition to shooting in my studio, I shoot on location also. The Chippewa Valley has gorgeous scenery, and many locations that can provide a stunning backdrop. I'm happy to travel to your familiar locations to capture special images. For new or experienced models looking for profile or portfolio updates, I offer PFT. I also help cover travel costs.

*****Last but not least, possibly the most important…none of your photographs will unknowingly appear on the internet. You and I will discuss which one or ones I would like to use for promotion. Beyond that, Image Privacy is completely up to you. See my site for yourself. The above link will take you to my site, where a slide show will automatically start. If we have worked together, your gallery will be password protected. Input your password, and view your photos individually or in a slide show.
