Background

I grew up in Asia and Europe and I've had a camera within reach since the 6th grade. Most of my professional career has been spent working in the camera department for the Motion Picture Industry, the last eight of which I've worked as a Set Still Photographer and behind-the-scenes videographer. 

In addition, I've been shooting weddings and portraits for over 30 years. A large majority of my wedding clients come from the film and advertising world. 

Almost all of my movie/editorial/ad work originates from a digital camera. Most of my personal photography is shot on film. 

What makes my work different?

I'm not your typical event/portrait photographer. I am in the business of making images for two entirely different worlds — motion pictures and private events. What they have in common is that both require a lot of practiced anticipation to capture the right moment at the right time in the right way.
