About Me

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile.

I am a 40 year old guy who loves photography and charcoal/graphite drawing. I recently started branching out to the area of movie-making and sculpture. Aside from that I do own a Company that does scientific research and product development.

I am at the point where I barely have time to work on my own projects. So if you want me to consider working with you on TF(P/CD/DVD or combination of these), you need to fit in one of the projects that I have. List of projects is available upon request.

Currently I shoot with Nikon D300 digital, Olympus E-500 digital (backup), and Pentax 645N medium format film (120 and 220).

Prints up to 13x19 can be produced in the studio, anything larger has to go to the lab.

CD with finished images available for pick-up or shipping/e-mail/download within 14 days from the shoot. Complex re-touching that requires serious alteration of the image shot may take longer.

CD with slide-show of proofs for our selection available same day if you can stay about an hour after the shoot.

Make-up chair, mirrors and lights are provided. I do some of the make-ups, and sometimes hire MUA if I have something specific in mind. All other cases - make-up and hair is your responsibility. If you need MUA's help I can suggest a few affordable ones, or get it done prior to arrival.

Some accessories and clothes are available in the studio, but when I work with you of TF-basis it is generally your responsibility. (You don't expect me to ask you for a spare lens or a roll of film, right?!)

I do have a few basic requirements:
- escorts are welcome as long as they remain in waiting room;
- I am open to detailed discussion of the project prior then we shoot, but once we shoot - no drama is expected or tolerated.
- if you have a problem with something - speak up. I am not a member of Kenny Psychic network to guess what's on your mind.
- I get my gear and location prepared for the shoot, I expect you to come prepared to shoot as well.
- when I shoot - I own images. You want non-commercial release from me - no problem, but let me know ahead of the time.
- stuff that is shot for publication or exhibits can not appear on your folio prior to such publication or exhibit.
- I don't work with minor's unless parents are willing to stay on the set throughout the whole shoot. I am not a babysitter for your wild child.
- If your clothes are wrinkled and generally look like cow chewed on them for awhile - Studio has a steamer, iron and ironing board. And that is your job to fix it.
- and to conclude this - once again: No drama-queens/kings!

My rates are fair and reasonable. Yes I am a little more expensive than a childhood friend of yours holding an snap-shot camera, but if you won't be be shy to ask - you may be pleasantly surprised.

My studio has 2 additional photographers and a videographer that can be called upon if needed.
