I’m a Portrait photographer based in Chesapeake, VA.
I have photographed assignments all over the world as a 20-year Navy photographer. On location portraits photography is my specialty. Whether you prefer a camera room studio session or meaningful location, I welcome the challenge of creating something that is uniquely yours.
As a contemporary photographer, my goal is to produce images that tell a story about you or where you are at this point in life’s journey. To highlight the relationship, you have with your family and loved ones is my goal. Images that encapsulates your personality and tell your message to the world.
My approach to modern portrait photography is to incorporate a journalistic style. Portraits that speak without relying on words or subtext. With minimal direction I encourage my subjects into positon and scenarios that make them look their best and express an idea in the photographs. My belief is that the most essential photograph is the portrait. It is the memorandum we pass from one generation to the next. The heirloom that conveys who we are and a direct reflection of our time. With this in mind, we will collaborate and have fun during the portrait session to capture that relationship that exists between you and your loved ones.
Our portrait session is a time when family and friends get together in a way that they only rarely do. I’ll make sure we get those important individual family member’s photographs too. I want to give you the best possible selection of images that will be a lasting memory of this important time together. With that in mind, we’ll collaborate from the initial consultation, and then the location survey, and all the way to the portrait session day and even beyond that with the delivery of your wall portraits and presentation albums.
I look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact me if you’d like more info, or commission me as your photographer.
