I’ve been in the freelance photography business for over 20 years, I pride myself on telling clients that I can shoot anything, and shoot it well!
As my Dad would tell you, I have the gift of gab (but not the annoying kind) I still live in my native city of Long Beach in Southern California. I grew up at the beach in a hammy down swim suit and lived off of cheese sandwiches and burritos. My 5 siblings and I were the poor-ish kids faking it in the cool part of town - it was pretty great.
I bet I'm the only person in the country with a million dollar liability policy on a 1981 VW Vanagon I originally paid $1 for. The reason behind the policy is my 12 years as a contract photographer for one of the worlds largest sea ports - Port of Long Beach.
You’ll also find my camera bag at industry events, press conferences, and just about any other place cargo boxes are stacked. It's a hard gig to beat.
Aside from port work, you can find me working for other corporate clients in the West. Without sounding too cliche´, I believe an authentic picture is created by taking my subject into their natural environment - preferably where available light is the key source for creating the picture. I’m also good with artificial light, so bring that on if necessary!
My outdoor lifestyle portfolio is rooted in my lifelong obsession with being active in nature.
