I am kinda new at this biz. Most of my portfolio has been created since end of 2010. I spent most of my life in construction, as a carpenter, contractor, the owner of a high-end cabinet manufacturer, and lastly as a consultant and expert witness for construction defects.
Around 2007 I started using my work camera to shoot stuff I liked and that grew into wanting to make pictures all the time. When my last job ended in 2011 I decided to make the jump into doing photography! Pretty much all the pros I got to know thought I lost my mind, but I am still here plugging away and loving what I do.
I have always been creative whether it was music (yeah, I still have a Jeff Beck Signature Strat… amongst other guitars), setting up a huge construction investigation crew, getting out of trouble, or cooking dinner☺.
What do I like? Jeff Beck, Seal, chocolate chip cookies, watching movies, not having cable, Bombay Sapphire from the freezer on the rocks 4 olives and a dash of bitters, warm weather, snorkeling in Maui, taco tuesday, Satriani, Miles, Coltrane, Dubstep, Jarrett, Joni, Larry Carlton, Fusion, Stanley Clarke, purple, blue, sailing, Sting, Thelonius, Turrentine, Henrix, huge open fields of wheat, cooking something from scratch with what’s left in the fridge, Chrisman, Almas, Broening, Newton, Testino, Maisel, Annie, Simhoni, Watson, hot fudge sundaes, my smoked salmon recipe, my hickory smoked ribs, driving my 2006 GTO on the open freeway, San Francisco in the rain at night, homemade hot sauce with habs, running a man lift straight up to 120 feet from the ground, roller blading, good cabs, Def Leppard, Sade, days with amazing clouds, shooting 4 x 5 B&W portraits of good friends with a view camera, BART to SF for the day, Cowgirl Creamery, Hitchcock, Eastwood, Leone, Winter’s shadows, Summer’s temps, Starbuck’s dark italian roast, Vogue, W, Lurzer’s, Capitola, doing stuff that makes people think I am crazy, Yosemite, enjoying what I do… doing what I enjoy…
Life is short and I like to enjoy the journey.
My work? I specialize in photography of people or product, in the studio or on-location. I work hard to move forward every day.
Our 1000 sq. ft. studio is located in Dublin, California, a short 45 min. drive from Downtown San Francisco and a short walk from the Dublin BART Station. Why be stuck in SF when you can enjoy a relaxed reverse commute in the Valley? Parking? Right outside the studio door! Stoneridge Mall – 2 miles away. Paragon Outlets – 5 miles, Target,
I look forward to a portfolio review and opportunity to provide imagery that helps you stand out in the crowd.
Hire us! (Plus my Kathi might make fresh chocolate chip cookies, if you ask)
