“When photographing your headshot, there are a number of “go to” setups that I can both recreate and rely on while producing satisfactory results. But most any photographer with lighting knowledge and posing suggestions can reproduce this same, nice, satisfactory image. But those “good” images are expected, they’re standard and they are not any different than your colleague’s headshot.

What I’ve realized photographing portraits in recent years is that everyone’s uniqueness is an added beauty to this world. I’ve learned to embrace it and I attempt to represent everyone true to who they are and what they do. Everyone has both a physical & emotional good & bad side, so relying on the same poses and lighting formulas to achieve “nice” results isn’t fair. It isn’t fair to you and it isn’t fair to me. I’d be selling myself and others very short if I reproduced the same type of image for every person. I like to light and approach each session according to the subjects personality, facial features, and bone structure. It’s all part of the fun & creative process.

I’ve chosen to specialize in headshots and portrait photography because I get excited to meet new people. Specifically individuals who are doing cool stuff and creating something they are passionate about. I’m thankful to attract these types of clients. The individuals you see on this webpage are original, innovative in their field, and they are changing the world in which we live in to be a better place for others.

If you consider yourself a person with a similar mindset, please reach out to me. I would love to meet and collaborate with you.”
