Edward & Kim – Angels Among Us Pet Rescue

This is Edward the dog and Kim his cat – a bonded elderly pair whose humans died and who had no where to go. My friends at Angels Among Us Pet Rescue took them in as fosters knowing that getting them adopted would be a challenge (to put it mildly). Against all odds, Edward and ... Read More

Moving To Woodstock, GA

After 14+ years in Ball Ground, GA my wife and I decided that our house was just too big for the two of us, and it was time to downsize our space and our mortgage. As much as we love that Ball Ground is so close to the beautiful North Georgia mountains, we were ready ... Read More
My Home Photography Studio Is Closed – For Now

My Home Photography Studio Is Closed – For Now

For the past 14 years, I had an active home photography studio in the basement of my house. Former and future “real models” spent time there.

I Unfriended a Model Today

There’s this model who popped up on Facebook about a year ago that I thought was incredible. She has a gorgeous face, long, lean, fit figure, a few well-placed tattoos, and is just a natural in front of the camera.  Every picture of her I’ve seen – even those done by crappy photographers – is ...

Money Changes Everything

There’s a model on Facebook I want to photograph. She has the “girl next door” look I like, lives near me, and has experience in front of the camera. I contacted her about doing a shoot, and she was amenable. She has always liked my work and wanted to shoot with me. Plus, she said, ... Read More
Marketing Yourself

Marketing Yourself

When I started beauty/glamour photography, I signed up for an on-line model/photographer networking website.
