    Mike and his wife Laura did our maternity photos on the beach. They got there early to setup and to pick the best locations to shoot. We had a great experience and the pics turned out great. Very affordable and would definitely recommend.

About this pro

Special events, portraits, real estate, and commercial photography, in my studio or on location – whatever the task, I’ll work to make you look your best. I’ve been taking pictures practically my whole life, and retouching with Photoshop since 1992. I use a full-frame camera, top-notch lenses, and Monterey’s beautiful, natural light when possible. I love turning the camera around and sharing that first shot with the model. My customers are almost always delighted immediately. In the post-production phase, I enjoy removing distractions from whatever is the most important aspect of the image: the model’s eyes, an uncluttered interior, an object’s unique element.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Cost varies per project. I can take payment in person or online.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Large events or long projects would require a contract, but for most jobs, a phone call is all I need. After I take your photos, I retouch and resize them, and e-mail them to you, usually within just a couple of days.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I’ve worked as a photographer and graphic designer in advertising and publishing since 1984, and with Adobe Photoshop since 1992. Besides the retirement of film, not much else has changed technically. Lenses and light behave the same way they always have.
