I got my first camera (a kodak 110) in 1976, and my first real camera (a new-to-me konica T) in 1982. Then life happened - school, the Navy, more school, the Persian Gulf War, work, yet more school, hi-tech start-ups, private consulting practice. It was shortly after our first child in 2000 that I picked up the camera again and reconnected with what I missed. I've been shooting professionally now since 2012.
Why is this important?
I've been there. To get a compelling headshot, there must first be a connection between the photographer and the model (that would be you). From this connection we build trust. Within this space of trust we get fearlessness and authenticity - a true expression of self that we capture in an image. I've spent a lifetime connecting with people in real life, real-time.
Technical excellence. With two engineering degrees, I've got the technical chops to deliver your story the way you want it told. And quickly too. I rarely need to retouch my images, so you get your results fast (usually within a day). As a business leader, I know the importance of immediate delivery.
Continuous improvement. I am a lifelong learner. I am driven to improve my craft and explore new ways to tell compelling stories. I am also supported by the best group of headshot photographers in the world (Peter Hurley's Headshot Crew). Working together, there is no problem we can't solve.
Photography may have started as a passion, but it is now my work.
