Corporate headshots

Ambient light rules the world
That’s a plain fact
But sometimes you can’t utilize it
When that happens, strobes are a game changer
That, and reflectors, casting soft light
With each outing,
I develop more control over highlights, mid tones, and shadows
Take a peek at this recent set
Thank you!

Outdoor Headhsots

Good ambient light rarely disappoints. When executive teams and business professionals request outdoor headshots, I’m always game. The challenge of finding good light in unlikely places is addicting in the best possible way. Scroll and enjoy. As always, thank you for visiting.

Faces

In between client projects, I’m always chasing light
Especially when it radiates from people, their faces, freckles, and eyes

One of my heartbeats, my daughter
