About Me

I retired from the telecommunications industry on April 3rd, 2015 and I have dedicated my retirement to photography.


I have been married to a wonderful woman for over 27 years.  We live in San Lorenzo California. Laura works with children and I spend my days shooting photographs at the Oakland Zoo when I am not shooting headshots of people who need them for Modeling or Acting jobs, as well as LinkedIn and other Social Media.


I didn't start taking photographs with the idea that I would shoot headshots but even when shooting photographs of zoo animals, I began to realize that what interested me was faces. I kept zooming in and framing the picture around their faces.

Let's face it, people have more interesting faces, and I can generally get a lot closer to them, so while I still get my exercise by walking up and down the hills of the Oakland Zoo while shooting photographs of the animals,  my real passion is getting the very best out of people so that they receive the best photograph that anyone has ever taken of them.
