That depends on who you pay. But, in many cases, I would say yes. Investing in having professional photos taken will generally pay for itself when you work with the right photographers. If you want to know whether it’s worth working with me, all I can say is that the services that I provide often lead to paid work and significantly more exposure for the people I work with. I am contacted often by models telling me they got a paid gig or attracted a certain photographer or company because of the shots we got while working together. In all my experience of working with people, I’ve never once been told by anyone that they felt they paid too much. Usually it’s the opposite. They can’t believe how much they got compared to what they’ve spent before or heard that other models spent for photos. If you’re at all hesitant, We encourage you to “shop around” first. Please check out the rates that other photographers charge. I’m confident that you will find that my rates are far below the industry average.
My studio is located in Las Vegas, Nevada however I do not limit myself to just studio shoots, I shoot everywhere, indoors and out and throughout the United States. The world is my backdrop. I thrive on the challenges of shooting outdoors and on location during all seasons. With models who are interested, I am entirely open to traveling in order to reach scenic environments and ideal shooting locations such as mountains, beaches, ghost towns, etc. I will occasionally travel significant distances for prime opportunities and to work with exceptional models. If you’re from a region outside of my local area (or even across the country!) and are interested in the possibility of working together, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I am always on the lookout for new places to shoot. If you know of any interesting or exotic locations available for shooting, please contact me. This includes both indoor and outdoor locations such as large houses, ghost towns, old buildings, barns, farms, open fields, parks, historic sites, pools, lakes, yachts, etc.
Yes, however due to my busy schedule, I suggest you arrange for your photo shoot now to make sure the time and date you would like is available when you arrive. I do request a deposit of $50 to $250 (depending on the amount of time you want and if you would also want to shoot at some of our more remote, scenic locations. Contact me for more info.) When I receive your deposit I will not schedule any other shoots for the time you have reserved. Your deposit is considered a retainer and is nonrefundable. This is because I will turn down other work for the time you have reserved.

Yes. Being prepared for and comfortable during a shoot is important. When time and/or distance permits, I like to consult with all clients in person prior to a scheduled shoot date to discuss the desired focus and needs of a given photo session, as well as to exchange ideas. A typical consultation ranges from 20-60 minutes.
Let me just say that I am not “shoot by numbers” photographer. I am genuinely interested in the people I work with and I go to great lengths to make sure that you get what you desire out of a photo shoot. You will not find any photography studio more into what they do and more intent on making your experience the best that it can possibly be, than I am. I am also not a cookie-cutter photographer. I do not stick to any one single technique or style of photography with every person I shoot. I embrace experimentation and love to learn new techniques that allows me to switch up my style. I strive to continually raise the aesthetic qualities of my work while also providing each person with photographs that don’t just look like every other photograph I’ve taken.
Yes. I will always make special exceptions to work with people who might not otherwise be able to work with a professional photographer. I will work with any reasonable budget goal to help you meet your photography needs.
As a general rule, hiring a make-up artist & stylist is the responsibility of the client. However, I will be happy to refer you to some make-up artists and hair stylists I have worked with in the past. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the client to communicate with and work out details with the make-up artist.
I shoot digital photography with top-of-the-line Nikon Professional digital equipment. I can also shoot film, upon request. (added fee for film requests)
Yes. Tons of it which I dispense freely during shoot if asked.
Well, this is entirely up to you. But if you are reading this, it’s probably because you like my work or you heard about a positive experience that any one of the number of people I’ve worked with have had. The chances are very good that if you like my work, then you will also like the work I do for you. I am a fun (but professional) reputable, no-pressure, non-sleazy, easy-going photographer who cares about your comfort, your safety, your satisfaction, and your career (or aspiring career) in modeling. And you don’t have to take my word for it, you can read the testimonials section to see what others had to say. I take a very relaxed and easy going approach to my work. I will not pressure you to do or try things you are not comfortable in doing and I will not put you in uncomfortable or dangerous situations. Regardless of who you are or where you are from, I give equal respect and provide the same caliber of service and attention to detail to each and every person I have the opportunity to work with.
