- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I use the Peter Hurley method, and provide resources and instructions to ensure terrific results.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
It all started in Port Alexander, Alaska, in a tiny fishing village on Baranof Island with 120 people total population. In this setting, I learned to frame subjects by using the natural beauty of Tongass National Forest, to connect with photographic subjects, and to connect the subjects to the beauty of the natural environment. Fast forward three decades, and I have evolved my approach to be purely focused on headshots in California. I still use leading lines, and complimentary colors, but in a setting where such things are far more subtle. The angle of the hair, a tilt of the head, a splash of color or light painting, all of these things can enhance interest in the image and keep the viewer fully engaged. In 2019, I graduated from photography courses at the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco, California as part of my continuing education.
