Proudly serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Sessions are available on-location wherever you allow a camera, and maybe some places they don’t usually 🙂 I’m available for travel locally in the SF Bay Area, nationwide throughout the United States & worldwide. I specialize in personalized, customized photo shoots and quick thinking to bring you artistic brilliance through the magic of photography. In addition to portrait and family sessions, I am currently accepting editorial, commercial and event photography assignments in a variety of genres including: portraits, architecture and design, documentary, landscapes, stock photography and more.

I spend my time rambling around a beautiful park or urban blocks  photographing you and your children or lighting you in your place of business for a beautiful portrait. I’ve made photos out of candlelight, pianos, songwriters and sheer will, captured rock stars under the beaming lights of the main stage in the awe of the moment, and photographed delicate portraits of 1-week olds in their mother’s arms.

I love photographing families, families with children and babies, creatives, business professionals, musicians, actors and everyday individuals looking for great photographs of themselves for a variety of purposes including heirloom creation, artwork, promotion, marketing and more. I’m also active making images of landscapes and urban scenes, during the day and at night, and pride myself on specializing in ‘not specializing’ in any one genre of photography while remaining flexible and professional with a variety of clients.

I have worked for a number of folks in the Bay Area. References available upon request, or check in with past clients on Yelp.

You can contact me via email: info {at} or via the contact page.

I’ve been making images with still photography cameras since I could hold one. Having honed my craft during the not so bygone era of film photography, and now faithfully shooting full frame 35mm digital, I can assure you that dedication to the passionate art of photographic image making is in full effect in your presence.

Essential to any photographers set of skills is consistent training and education. I am always out there learning, networking, trying new things and building upon the foundation 30+ years in the making.

Not that any of this really matters right? It’s the images you’re looking for that do. Please browse my portfolios and if you think my style is the right fit for your needs, send me a note and we can hop on the phone to chat about what you’re unique goals and ideas are!


Continuing Education


One of the most important things to me in this industry is continued education and always pushing yourself to learn more and challenge yourself to do more and create amazing images. This can only be done by becoming a master of your craft. I invest at least 10% of my income and often 50% of an entire week learning and growing as a business person and photographer. This helps me not only bring you images that stand the test of time, but it can be done in a well thought out professional tried and true way.


Gear & Equipment


For the technically minded, something extra special I bring to the table is a lineup of professional gear. Minimum photo bag contents include:

Nikon D810 and D700 dSLR Cameras

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens

Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII Lens

Oh yeah, we’re also insured up the wazoo, so if anything goes wrong we’re one step ahead.
