Experience in the area

I'm a published and agency recommended professional freelance photographer from Southern California. I shoot for the specific photographic requirements of private individuals, models, actors, entertainers, designers, PR & talent firms, Red Carpet, Corporate and special events. I have over 10 years specializing in fashion, lifestyle, portraiture, editorial, headshots, swimwear, glamour, boudoir, lingerie, artistic, nude, erotic and theme specific photography. I'm also experienced with photo enhancement and retouch and I utilize professional photographic equipment from Canon. My software proficiency includes Photoshop CS6, Lightroom and Portrait Professional.


I have studied photography at the Los Angeles School of Photography. I host educational seminars for amateur photographers twice a year in the LA area.

What do you like about this subject?

It is a great way for me to share my knowledge and photographic experience with individuals who have questions of importance to them.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

18 U.S.C 2257- 2257A certifications require photographers to keep record for proof of age and to sign a model release when shooting with a photographer whether it is on a paid or exchange (TFP) basis.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

18 U.S.C. 2251- Sexual Exploitation of Children defines child pornography as any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a minor (persons under 18 years of age). Is taking ANY type of implied nude, topless or full nude photo of a minor (even non-sexual such as a nudist photo) illegal, immoral or both? Should minors be allowed to model in underwear or lingerie illegal even if it is not sexually revealing?
