31 Years of experience

I'm retired, have 24+ years of experience as a professional fashion photographer, & just relocated to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where I've bought a new house with a 1-car garage I'm considering turning into an interior studio...


I love working with new or up-and-coming, female models & designers, to help develop their portfolios & assist them with basic modeling training, including:


1) How to pose & work in front of a camera

2) Which colors, styles, & fashions look best on YOU

3) PLUS, experiment with various hairstyles, makeup, & accessory options


As a result...as long as my expenses are covered...I'll happily work TFP with any female candidate I accept...just ask!


When working with models & designers, I always shoot using the highest resolution, in the largest format size, which can be featured with FULL clarity on billboards, in national magazines, & by all other media forms...


It's VERY common for me to conduct a multiple-hour shoot in which HUNDREDS of images are captured. After reviewing them all, I provide my clients with a flash drive of their best ones...WITH NO MAXIMUMS...in both edited & unedited formats...


I look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

Awards, honors and recognition

I've provided photography images for most major magazines & print publications.

A fun fact about me

The most challenging shoots I ever performed were for aerial stunts during skydiving competitions...starting out at a height of 12,000 feet while doing multiple free-falls was QUITE exhilarating! Besides being a professional fashion photographer, I've also been a local, State, & National Pageant Judge for various charitable & non-charitable organizations, including: American Coed Pageants...Relay For Life Breast Cancer Organization...Queens For a Cure Breast Cancer Organization...The STARS Foundation...& many local organizations, to include the Jaycees, multiple High Schools & much, MUCH more. I also support many other charities by volunteering my photography time to them...such as: The US Marine Corps Toys for Tots Charitable Organization...the American Cancer Society...United Way Charities...Boy & Girl Scouts organizations...USA Special Olympics & USA Women's Soccer Professional & Amateur Organizations...PLUS, myriad Cheer & Gymnastics organizations.
