Behind the lens...
I am a full-time professional photographer, specializing in authentic headshots. Crazy to think that I even to need to say "full-time" or "professional", but wanted you to know that this is not a side-hustle.
I've been at this full time since 1996. With five kids (including two bonus sons) my daily practice of outdoing my best work is how I feed my family.
As an out-of-the-box entrepreneur, I bring a diverse history of retail management/merchandising and 20 years of self-employment insights to every project. What does this mean for you?
I get it - we share the same challenges of grabbing the attention and trust of our next client - many of whom will see your photo long before your person. What impression did that photo leave on them? Appealing or appalling?
My job is to see, in advance, what your client will be looking for, and prompt you to portray that authentic version of YOU!
I am an Idea Guy that is open to your input and ideas, but you can trust that I'll speak up if I have another idea that might appeal more to your ideal next client."
I have a team of artists that masterfully take you from great to wow! They are full-time talent that make you look your best, thus making me look even better as the source for your finished images.
Our style of art and retouching is "Detailed, but REAL.” Head swaps, wrinkled shirts, and the basics of blemishes, stray hair, lip-line of make-up etc.
