How long have you been doing photography for?

As of 2022, I have now been shooting professionally for brands, marketing agencies, businesses, and magazines for over 7 years. I've had a camera in hands however for over 10 years. I've had the privilege of working on assignment with numerous talented individuals and have shot a countless number of professional headshots, advertisements, products, and prepared foods and beverages. It has been an incredible ride and I'm looking forward to creating much more!


Did you go to school or take any special courses related to photography?

My photography education began back at Sacramento City College where I took classes in commercial photography, advanced studio lighting, portfolio development, business management and marketing. It was a gem of a program and following my graduation I became a teacher's studio assistant while simultaneously apprenticing for three different commercial photographers over the course of two years. Then, in 2015, I made the best decision of my life and began my business. Today I still actively educate myself by reading books, taking online courses, and using good old experimentation.


Do you travel to other places? Do you shoot outside of Denver? 

I do! I love to travel and take every opportunity to see more of the world. I provide professional services like portraits, headshots, food, beverage, and product photography in Boulder, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins, and I also travel regularly to clients in other states. I'm also readily available for international travel. 


How long does it take to receive the images after a shoot?

The return time on images can change depending on the scope of the assignment. Most headshot and micro photography sessions will have their images completed within 1-2 days, however for larger commercial and advertising productions the time can be approximately 3-7 days. Rush orders can also be completed within 24 hours for an additional fee. 


Can we go to multiple photo locations during a shoot?

Absolutely! Every session can be custom designed so we can visit multiple locations. I will always do the research in advance to find clusters of locations near each other so we can spend more time shooting and less time in the car.   


Do you edit your own photos?

Yes, most definitely! In fact every image you see on this website was edited by me. As a professional photographer I love post-processing and take a lot of pride in seeing your photos look their best from start to finish. Although rare, if a production does become exceptionally large then a second hand-picked editor can be hired for an additional fee. 


How much retouching do you do for headshots?

Every final selected portrait receives pro level retouching, including eye enhancements, teeth whitening, body shaping, skin smoothing and stray hair removal. This is in addition to my signature toning style and other quality adjustments like contrast, color balancing, and brightness.


How do I get my photos after they are done?

After the images are prepared I will send you a secure link to a private gallery within my website. From there you can view your images, download them, and share the link with others so they can view them too. There is also the option to password protect your gallery.


Do you provide RAW image files?

Every image I create is photographed in RAW format to ensure the maximum amount of color information is available for editing, however I deliver all finished images as high resolution JPEG files. Very few online platforms accept RAW files for storage and viewing, so for painless usability and to protect my copyrights as the legally owning artist I do not include the RAW files within my packages. If you would like to receive the RAW files they can be provided with an additional fee and agreement.


Do I own the copyright to the photos once you deliver them to me?

Under the United States copyright law and as the original content creator I am the copyright owner of the images. If the images were taken for personal use (e.g. headshots, personal portraits, etc.) then they may be printed, shared and posted to your heart's content! However if the images were created for a business, a brand, or any other type or commercial purpose then a usage rights agreement will be needed. Under no circumstances may the images be resold, reused or distributed to separate entities without my consent.


Will my photos show up on your website?

As a professional photographer it’s important for me to be able to show my existing body of work to attract new clients and show proof of my capabilities. After most photography sessions you'll likely see exciting highlights from our shoot and the final images posted on my website, portfolio, blog and social media. If you would prefer to not have your images shown, please let me know and I will happily respect your request.


Do you require a deposit?    

If a photography session requires significant advance expenses prior to the production date (fuel, air fare, lodging, extended travel time, equipment rentals, prop purchases, etc.) then yes, a deposit will be required. However, if the session is booked within the local greater Denver area and there are no advance expenses then a deposit is usually not needed. If a deposit is collected and an unforeseen circumstance halts the production (severe weather, acts of God, sickness, changing COVID regulations, etc.) and we cannot reschedule then the deposit will be returned.


How do I book a shoot?

Booking is quick and easy! Head over to my contact page and send me a message with as many details about the shoot as you can. Please list your name, the company you're representing, dates, times, descriptions of the images you are looking to create, and an estimated total number of the images you will need. After this I will reply (usually within 24 hours) to set up a quick phone or zoom call.
