Before becoming a professional photographer, I was a Photo Art Director for 20 years, casting and directing top models and actors and working with top photographers around the country and in other countries. I've produced hundreds of photoshoots and I picked up a camera not long after I got onto my first set. I am privileged to have worked with and learned from many elite photographers including Ruven Afanador, Deborah Turbeville, Walter Chin, Francois Hallard, Michelangelo Di Battista, Liz Von Hoene and Anne Menke, just to name a few.
I conceptualize stories, art direct, photograph and produce photoshoots and have cast and directed crews of up to 20 people.
I am at my happiest with a camera in my hands :)... I love my job.
