I am an Architectural, Product & Portrait Artist located in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and available for travel anywhere my clients need me. Well, almost anywhere. I won't work on the wing of an airplane or suspended from some high elevation - Sorry lol. 

 

My architectural and product image style - I'm one of a very small percentage of photographers in the world who have mastered light painting, which is how I achieve my distinctive look. In a nutshell, light painting involves hitting the object being photographed with light at varying intensities and angles. Each final image is typically comprised of 50-100 layers of lighting. Small products usually incorporate 5 or so. This lighting technique allows me to create contrast and accentuates the curves, lines, peaks and valleys of the object. This method also allows me to add highlights where I deem desirable. Light painting is indispensable for creating dynamic images with an extreme wow factor.

 

My portraiture style - I also utilize lighting for portraiture, just not the insane amount of lighting performed on objects. My preference leans dramatic but varies based on a number of factors and tailored to my subject.

 

Client objective:

My goal for every client is to create images that make them and their products jump off the screen and/or printed page. They only get a second or two to grab attention, but if I do my job right, they get much more than that.

 

My lighting and grip kit is extensive and typically much more than needed to handle any assignment.
