I don’t do weddings because as a subject it doesn’t interest me. What does interest me is serving your communication needs by photographing people: business professional, editorial, multiple exposure and natural light portraits. I am also good at time lapse narratives and construction documentation If you’re looking for service-oriented, inventive, creative professional photography then let’s talk soon. I’m at 818-422-0696. I’m based in Pasadena but serve the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys.
I’ve worked around the world and close to home. My philosophy of a successful photograph is the combination of a series of small decisions made correctly evolved from the thousands of photographs I’ve made for hundreds of satisfied clients. Since 1980 I’ve been the go to guy for the likes of Disney, Southern California Edison, USC, Warner Brothers, Sotheby’s, and Madison Square Garden.
I make your job is easy by producing thoughtful energetic images that exceed your expectations, that pay attention to detail and are delivered where you need them on time. I keep the big picture in mind while concentrating on all the little detail things that keep me going in the right direction.
That’s the expertise I offer.
Some kind words…
