Hi, my name is Al and thanks for stopping by and checking out my web site. I've been into photography for as long as I can remember. I love to shoot landscapes, wildlife, birds, flowers, insects and still life. sunset barn
I also have a particular fondness for shooting people and portraits. It started way back when my daughter was born and has continued ever since that time.

Model Portfolios

Over the last few years I began shooting models in order to enjoy and expand that passion for photography. My current emphasis is on helping models create and expand their model portfolios. I love meeting and working with new people. I treat everyone with the respect they deserve.

Models, take control of the image you portray through your portfolio. Don't be tied to displaying genres, concepts, wardrobe and images that the photographer chose for you. Let's work together to create a concept that speaks to the image you want to project.

  • Are you new to modeling or just want to update your portfolio?
  • Do you have an idea or concept and want to develop and shoot it?
  • Do you just want to have some fun shooting?
If you answered 'Yes' to any of the above, message me and we'll set something up.

Creative Collaboration

I'm a believer in "creative collaboration." That means that I like to have you, the model, involved in developing and refining the concept. That's not an absolute requirement, but I believe that it helps to ensure that both the model and photographer come away from the shoot with something that they can both use and be proud of. Also, I never charge for portfolio building sessions and I prefer to work TF*.


Let's have some fun making beautiful photos... What do you have to lose? Give me a shout and let's arrange a session.

Session Terms/Compensation


This is a topic that comes up quite often when booking a session. Unless I state otherwise, all sessions will be performed on a 'Trade' basis. That means that I will trade my time and skills as a photographer & retoucher for your time as a model. As a model you will receive an agreed upon number of fully processed and retouched images for your use in promoting your modeling career.


I have a fairly flexible schedule and will work with you to arrive at a date and time that will fit your schedule. All sessions are by appointment only. Sessions can last from one to 3 hours, depending on the number of themes and/or outfit changes.

Idea Boards:

I have a Pinterest board where I try to keep a series of ideas updated and available to help with getting the creative juices flowing and the collaboration started. Please take a look My Pinterest Idea Board.
