I Like People

People are kinda awesome, each of us in our own particular way. 

Capturing a moment of rest or excitement -I like them both.

Span the generations

I think it’s so important to have printed photographs of ones family for future generations. Such mementos  allow for us to reflect on life and share memories.

For your loved ones

Consider setting up a time for a portrait session. Maybe you want your picture taken or you want a photograph of your mother; send me a note and let’s make it happen. I know only it’s September 17th, but there are 14 Fridays left before Christmas -yikes! 

Either way, be sure to add your email to my mailing list, so you can be the first to know about photo shoot specials and any good stuff that happens.



Print Shop

Photographic Art Prints

I created the print shop because I’ve had questions about purchasing prints of my palm tree images and other environmental photographs.

You Choose

There are two paper choices (RA print or a fine art print -both are archival) and on most images I’ve given few size choices; I also recently added frames.

Just Ask

If there is an image on my website or Instagram you would like but it’s not in the shop, don’t hesitate to send me a message about it. Take a look around the shop; I hope you see something you’d like to have in your home.

Consider signing up for my mailing list, as it’s the best way for me to let you in on specials and any fun stuff happening.



Folks doing what they love

I really like hanging out with people while they make things and do things that are important to them. 

   Creative people inspire me.

Allowed a glimpse inside a workspace is exciting and sometimes intimidating -I mean, the things people make with their hands, it blows me away!

   Personal portraits can be inspiring.

With family portraits and single-person portraits, hobbies can be brought into the picture. Wouldn’t it would be awesome to have photographs of you making/doing something you love?

I want to do this! I want to photograph artists and collectors and hobbyists. Who’s in? Shoot me a line here if you want to talk about having me photograph you.


Don’t wait for perfection

Don’t wait to be photographed.

Don’t wait for “better”.

Do it now, as you are; do it for the people that love you; do it for who you will be in a year. 

Do it to honor all that you have gone through and all that you have achieved. 

You deserve it

I’d love to talk with you about having your portrait taken. You can contact me through this form. Also, please join my mailing list here for notifications about specials and my rather infrequent blog posts. 


Always evolving

There are many things and people I want to photograph, so many in fact that I freeze up and don’t do any of it. In an attempt to get out of the freeze I take a camera and go somewhere, Balboa Park is a favorite. I’m also making myself take more photo’s with my iPhone. The act of photographing something in the moment is making me get over myself, somewhat. Meeting new people and going to new places will hopefully make me a more interesting photographer.

Environmental

I’ve visited Ventura a few times in the recent past and I’ve enjoyed exploring the area. My photo’s from there have been of buildings, neighborhoods, but only few people so far. Generally, I don’t know where I’m headed, so I drive and stop when something catches my eye.

People

Even though I haven’t photographed many people (only two) while in Ventura, I’m still looking at everyone; shop owners, tourists and locals. I like to think about how I would shoot their portraits. I just need to jump in and ask a few folks if I can photograph them.

Take a look at the Print Shop for work from Ventura and I’d love it if you signed up for my email list.
