A keen interest in portraiture came early for me with a fascination with the work of Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Scuvullo and others seen in the magazines that came in the mail for my mom e.g. Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Today it’s the likes of Annie Leibovitz and Mark Seliger that inspire me...I eventually got my own subscriptions to "Rolling Stone" and Warhol’s "Interview." There are ootles of album covers that have undergone great scrutiny and still do today.
Many “store front” portrait photographers have a formula from which they never stray thus every image looks similar with a different face. I approach each and every portrait from the ground up. Designing an image that will best suit your needs but most importantly best capture your essence and individuality.
I believe lighting, mood and styling are key for successful portraits. I’m equally comfortable in the studio or on location, indoors or out. I can give you the “industry standard” (what’s trending this year) headshot if you’re and actor. I can capture your personal best for Facebook, LinkedIn your company newsletter or the cover of a magazine or to show your grandkids your legacy. I work with some of the best make-up artists and stylists anywhere or I’m comfortable one on one capturing the real, unadulterated you. Every photo I take, I take very seriously while keeping the experience fun and frivolous for you.
Got a group? I’m down with that, band, family, staff, wedding party* (*see below)…I’ll find the right jing.
Annie Leibovitz once said, “One of the things that set’s my work apart is that I’m not afraid to fall in love with my subjects.” That just makes so much sense to me.
