I love stories. What makes people tick, your journey and light. I always loved tapping into people's energy and using that in our shoots. Its an honor to be apart of that and documenting it is what I love.
I have been A Casting Director and Agent and I worked in LA and NYC and Chicago. I helped launch a talent agency in NYC and that was such an amazing experience. We were all over interviewed with Rachel Ray, Tyra and so much more. I got to work with Photographers like Annie Liebovitz, Steven Klein, Greg Kadel, Nigel Barker, Steven Misel. I learned as much as I could just watching on set with the greats. One of the great moments was standing next to Greg Kadel in Central Park shooting for Vanity Fair.
I have shot for Maxim, Ford Models, LA Models, Lions Magazine, some Playmates and more. I have been Published in Multiple Magazines and work with many agencies for Models, Actors and Commerical. What I love is how I can run wild in all mediums and create.
I believe Portraits are a powerful thing. The standard "headshot" here in LA bores me. Mostly its stagnant energy that rarely captures that person capabilities as an Actor. Its just a picture of a person sitting silently without life trying to be something they are told. I want the story, I want the insides. I tap into people and the result is beautiful. That person is as they are all of their capabilities, success, failures, highs and lows - I create that space so the person can relax, open up, and feel free to be who they are. You can see it in their eyes in each shot.
I start with you and get in that initial conversation and visually feel you, your story, needs, wants and build from there. I sometimes cant explain what I am tapping into but its there. I let the energies meet and the rest is what we get. Its very different than just being a Portrait Photographer and taking a standard "headshot" thats not me. I want to dive into who you are without you deflecting.
