I am a Florida-based editorial, advertising and commercial photographer specializing in fashion, beauty, food, related still life and botanical images. I have a strong background in art/creative direction, concept development, creative team selection and management, photography and digital post production. I am also an agency-approved test photographer, shooting portfolio images for agency represented fashion models, as well as fashion-standard models seeking representation.
In addition to work for editorial and commercial clientele, I also shoot conceptual, still life and botanical images for stock licensing and sale as fine art prints as my schedule permits.
As an environmentalist and a vegan, I am a strong supporter of sustainable, cruelty-free products in the fashion and beauty industries. I am eager to work with fashion and beauty clients who do not use animal derived materials in their products, particularly those who use sustainable materials that do not cause damage to the environment. As such, I have set a few important policies regarding the work that I shoot. Those interested in hiring me to shoot their fashion or beauty campaigns, lookbooks, editorials, etc. are asked to please keep the following in mind.
I do not photograph real animal fur or products tested on animals. I do not wish to support the fur trade or use of animals in laboratory testing, as I find both to be both barbaric and completely unnecessary practices. As such, while I do photograph faux furs, I require that man-made alternatives be properly disclosed as such upon image publication in advertising, lookbooks, editorials, and other online and print publication. No exceptions.
I also do not knowingly photograph beauty products containing animal byproducts, like lanolin. While I know that some leather products cannot be avoided completely, I strongly prefer to photograph man-made leather alternatives over genuine leather, as much as is possible and practicable.
I am also an earth-inspired artist and eco-friendly accessories designer. Both my art and design work consists of mixed media from a wide variety of sources and often include reclaimed, recycled, natural and found materials. I follow environmentally responsible studio practices as much as possible and practicable and offset what carbon I generate through studio work and my websites each month. Additionally, all of my work is cruelty-free and vegan.
