Apparel and Fashion Product Photography
Shooting Clothing whether it is on models or mannequins is some of my favorite kind of photography. I don't mind steaming fabric, clipping and pinning sleeves and backs, and marking poses for consistency. At the end of the shoot, the body of work is like my own fashion show. I excel at the "ghost mannequin" effect, where there appears to be an invisible model in the clothes. You can see the inside of the collar or the back side of the bathing suit from the front view. It looks cool and it shows the customer the quality of the apparel.
Health & Beauty
It's not just about beautiful models and shiny things. Photography is all about telling a story with one image. Conveying the right message to the customer in an instant. I love doing this. Even when it's a simple white-background product shot, you can say something about the product with the lighting, focal length and angles. When a customer doesn't want to read the text, you need to be able to show them everything you want them to know in one image. I enjoy being challenged like this.
Home Decor Photography
Shiny chrome, polished nickel, glass, water, convex and concave curves. It's not easy, but when you get it just right, it's the most beautiful kind of image. I love faucets, handles, shower heads, tub fillers and handheld sprayers. Difficult to shoot but oh so rewarding when the client sees the final image.
Industrial, Medical & Biotech
I love shooting in this category. Visiting interesting companies and learning learning something new every time. Always something visually interesting to photograph. Forces me to think about creating images in new ways.
Musical Instrument Photography
I started my photographic journey with musical instruments. As a guitarist and music producer, I'm drawn to the beauty of the wood and steel machines that produce original sounds. I try to capture the sound of the instrument with light. Little did I know, when I started this journey in Los Angeles California, that instruments are some of the most difficult things to photograph. The combination of curves and shiny finishes create challenges that most photographers will struggle with. I cut my teeth photographing guitars and trumpets and cellos for music stores and manufacturers, learning my craft along the way. Now, based in San Diego County, I'm well known for my musical images but I've expanded into all types products including apparel, jewelry, automobiles, home decor, and real estate.
