Introduction: As a photographer, I strive to create wall art. I want to create an image that you want to decorate your home with. I work with you to create your vision. I am a speedlite photographer. Some photographers state that they only use natural light. This becomes an issue when the sun doesn't shine at the angle that you want. You have to find another location no matter how much you like the current one. Knowing how to use lighting (my choice is speedlites) allows me to modify light in a situation so that you can still get the photo that you want despite the natural light not being in the place that is wanted. Speedlites allow me to create a studio in any situation. Whether in a corporate office, client's home, or on location photo shoot, knowing how to use speedlites allows me to create great images anywhere. I also offer high end retouching at no additional cost for corporate head shots. Using green screen technology, I can give a head shot client several different background choices. This provides value for my clients. They can use one background for the company website and another for social media. I enjoy photography. I love the challenge of creating something that will become a timeless memory.

I have had about 3 sessions with him and he is just amazing. He always makes sure to get the shots that you request but also some shots that you did not expect but leave you in awe. One of my all time favorite photos of my children and I was an unexpected shot that when i saw it it all i could do was tear up. He captured my sons mischievous nature, my daughters silliness and my love for them all in one shot. He attention to detail and his need to get the perfect shot have kept me coming back year and year. His prices are the best around for the quality and amount of photos that are taken. He makes sure that you are beyond happy with the photos taken. When working with him your working with a true professional. He once told me that the word photography means "painting with light" and that is exactly what he does. He uses all the light around him to have you looking your Hollywood best.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a starting base that I don't deviate from. I enjoy photography and even when I am not working for someone I am still creating images. However, there are cost that I incur when preparing for a photo shoot. It takes time and transportation cost to scout locations. I need to be able to at least cover my basic cost.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have two processes. When I am hired for an event I ask for the location and time of the event. When I am hired for smaller events, I ask for payment the day of the event. My goal is to have the proofs of the photos available within 24 hours of the event. Most likely I will have the photos ready by noon of the following day. For clients that purchase photo books, once the photos have been uploaded, I create my first draft of the photo book. Once the client approves the draft of the photo book I send the draft to the printers to get made. Once the book is completed it is mailed directly to the customer. At this time I also ask for an address to mail the DVD with the photos of the event. Most of the time it is the same address. For portraits, I discuss what is the purpose of the photos. Some people only want photos for social media and others want prints. Knowing this in advance helps me when I am framing my shots. If the customer knows the final print size I will take and process the photos to fit that format. How often has someone had a nice snapshot and then have to crop something that they wanted out when they try to print. I ask my new clients to tell me about images that they saw that they liked. This lets me know what is pleasing to them. This allows me to find locations to create images to their satisfaction. I am able to offer framed prints. The customer can have their photos taken and received a photo already framed and ready for the wall.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have completed a classroom course in studio portrait photography and an online course titled Secrets of Better Photography at the Community College of Baltimore County. In addition, I have taken online classes offered by Kelby One. Learning about photography is a daily part of my life. Everyday I listen to podcast and watch the online classes available through AdoramaTV.
