About Me

Thank you for reading my profile! I'm centrally located in the City by the Bay. I work ethically and shoot tastefully, with a particular interest in glamour, headshots, artistic, and a smattering of fashion. I love classic elegance.

Please check out the portfolios of the models on my photo page, and give them some love. They're all wonderful.

I am very selective about TFCD and available at an exceptionally low rate, which will include a nonrefundable advance deposit. My rate won't break anyone's bank, and my photos are often the most viewed and commented upon in models' portfolios. Please contact me for details. As a matter of policy, I will not reschedule with any model who flakes on a shoot or cancels with less than 24 hours notice.

My thanks and gratitude to all the fine people I've worked with and gotten to know here at Model Mayhem. Some have become genuine friends, and that's incredibly gratifying. I've shot with models from more than 30 nations, and every continent except Antarctica. Any penguin portfolios in need of fresh photos?

Please be considerate and do not book with me if you think it's OK to flake on shoots. It's not OK. It always saddens me to add names to the following list of models who are emphatically NOT recommended: Pinaybeauty MM #809197; Kayla D MM #830804; Kelsea Telise MM #377381; Mercedes916 MM #1011853; Miss Athena Marie MM #525782; Melissa Puleo MM #1091500; tpatel MM #1143209; Franrand MM #1204701; Kehinde Anjorin MM #374721; Stephanie Qutmiera MM #1360406; Katy_T MM#11311; Sweet Armani MM#1663664; ElainePower MM #1723250. Contact me for details.

I have a guest bedroom, with a private bath, which I sometimes make available to models traveling to San Francisco. I can gladly provide model references.
