San Francisco Bay Area, Portrait, Event, Wedding and Fine Art Photographer & Artist
I began working as a professional photographer around 1999. My first jobs were with non-profit art organizations, schools, museums and theaters. I’m an artist by training so working with these organizations was and will always be good fit since I was able to work with and for other artists of various disciplines.
Several years later I began video and photography for events, performance, weddings, personal & professional portraits and restaurant photography. Around 2005, I started doing real estate photography to help a friend sell her home.
I enjoy working in all of these modes because there’s a lot to be learned and shared from interacting with people all walks of life.
If you’re a non-profit, theater, business or individual, looking for an amicable photographer/videographer with budget friendly rates, contact me and let’s work together.
P.S. I also edit video so if you have raw wedding footage that you need edited, I can do that too.
As a teenager, I spent countless hours, between library stacks, pouring over and admiring the works of other photographers. Years later, while attending community college, I bought my first professional film camera (Pentax K1000). In 2000, I started using a Nikon Coolpix 950 to do street photography.
I will be working on a store so you can buy any of my images as prints.
I still enjoy walking around city streets taking pictures but I also the enjoy nature and macro photography, the waterfront, highways, twilight and night photography, rain on wet surfaces, and faces on lampposts.
I also create videos documenting my explorations.
I love painting older faces. As we age, gravity, time and life leaves indelible traces on our skin. We start to look like our parents, our grandparents, and their grandparents. It’s as if we travel back through time every time we look in the mirror.
The portrait gallery above chronicles my development with this medium including brief digressions and experiments that help to push my work in significant ways.
I am available for commissions so please contact me if you’d like to have a painting of yourself or a loved one. My paintings will be made available for online purchase soon.
