My philosophy is simple: the more fun you have, the better your pictures will look! Whether it's personal portrait, a commercial project or a grandiose wedding, I strive to capture vibrant, meaningful imagery with a positive creative energy.
I first fell in love with photography at the age of four. Holding my father's old 35mm Pentax SLR in my hands, there was something almost magical about all the dials and buttons which could... somehow... capture what I saw and preserve it forever.
That magic stayed with me.
After earning a BA in Photography in college, I learned the subtleties of portrait lighting as manager of a local East Bay studio. Eager to broaden my horizions, I launched my own business in 2006 with a commitment to quality imagery, customer service, and a fun-loving, professional attitude! In 2012, my wife Shell took over studio management duties to assist with the growing enterprise.
We now run our operations from the magnificent and historic Bridgehead Studios, near downtown Park Street in Alameda. An active member of the business community, we are members of the Alameda Business Network and the Greater Alameda Business Association.
And yes, my father still has that old Pentax. He has promised to give it to me someday. Hope I can still find film for it when he does!
