I am located in the WASHINGTON, DC, USA, metropolitan region.
At this time I am limiting my photo shoots to girls who live in these 5 states in the USA:
2. Washington, DC
3. Virginia, the northern part
4. West Virginia, the eastern part
5. Pennsylvania, the southern part
Exception would be if you have plans to visit the Washington, DC, USA in 2013 please let me know 60 days in advance and we can talk about a photo shoot.
I began photography in 1963 with a Kodak, the small 110 film, pocket camera. I moved up to the Nikon SLR in 1975, while working in New York City. I continued to take photography classes at community college and at the Nikon School of Photography.
I moved to Maryland in 1983 and continued to study photography at Montgomery College. I bought my first digital camera, a Fujifilm 2400, with 2.4 megapixels; in 1999, that was when 80% of the photographers said that digital photography would never equal film!
I bought my first serious digital camera in 2005, the Nikon D100 and went back to Montgomery College to learn how to use it better. I began photographing models in 2006. I now shoot with the Nikon D3S, D800, and D700. I use Nikon prime F2.8 lenses. I photograph about 60 girls and women a year!

My goal is to be the next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Photographer.
I enjoy portrait photography.
90% of my work is outdoors in natural light in fun locations.
For example: sailboats, horses, lakes, rivers, cruise ships, beaches, mountains and waterfalls.
I continue to search maps and ask people where are beautiful outdoor locations for photo shoots. Most of the leads are not worth using but when I find that special location one or two times a year, it is like finding a new friend, the kind you treasure and keep for a long time.
I enjoy working with new models who are willing to work hard.
I appreciated experienced models who do this for a living.
I only do photo shoots on Monday through Friday. I block out my nights and weekends for family time.
