Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
I'm a visual artist from Santa Fe, NM. I have a degree from the University of New Mexico in Graphic Design and Photography. I have been taking pictures professionally for 13 years, starting as my ships photographer in the Navy. After the Navy I enrolled in college at UNM and switched over to photojournalism at the student newspaper, the Daily Lobo. I was a staff photographer, as well as, the lead sports photographer for 4 years. While shooting sports I found a passion shooting on-location portraiture with athletes and artists. I have now been making portraits professionally for over 5 years. I have made portraits ranging from editorial, graduation, engagements, head shots, modeling, fashion and children's portraits. Most of my work is done on location with minimal setups using natural light.

Photography is a passion of mine and I do it every single day. I love to capture the true essence of people and hope that, together, we can make beautiful portraits.

Current Residence: Santa Fe, NM
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Medium

MP3 player of choice: iPhone
Interests
I'm really expanding where I go as a photographer and have come to understand that location portraiture is what I love doing. Im working on a few project series and am trying to meet new people, who are new themselves, to photograph.  

I'm shooting a New Mexico calendar. I had 5 out of 12 models so far. The idea is showing off gorgeous landscape with diverse type of women and men. I see it as a two-part photo, One scene where the landscape is the focus with the model being part of the landscape and a photo and then a second photo where the model is the focus and the landscape plays the background part. and they'd be displayed on the same page so you can see the beauty that is in New Mexico. Saying that I still need seven more models! So if your interested let me know.

But until that is finalized though I've recently started a series of photos called "Urban Sundress", which sounds exactly what it is. Girls in bright colored sundresses in urban/city settings.. I've always loved contrast in photography, especially the content. It's a new concept so i'm sure it will evolve but you have to start somewhere right?

So what do you guys think? Id love to here from all you Deviants out there

That's very sweet of you to take the time to write such a nice personalized note on my profile, but I find it odd to receive praise for faving your sexy art, where it is you who deserve all the praise for sharing these lovely images with us shmucks.

Because of that I do not bother to say thanks to the fans of my art. I do not mean to come off as crass, but they are not likely to give it half a thought if I did not respond. They have given their compliment to me by faving my art. It seems that is all that should be said of it.

I wish you well.
