Why shoot with me?


I believe an image is about a story -- a subject.

Often, I see images that are about the photographer -- You can see the skills presented in the editing and you can hardly see the subject/model.  Or, maybe you see over-use of Make Up and it becomes about the MU Artist.  Or, the hair stylist.

I strive to make my images about the subject.  It is about you and nothing else.

I hope that the images we take will have a lasting value.   Something we can view years from now and still have the same feelings as the day we captured it.
