I make head shots for individuals and organizations. This is a second career for me. I carried cameras around on business trips and vacations for 30 years and then I cut back to part-time in 2009, which freed me up to take photography seriously. I spent six or eight years photographing charity events and making headshots for them. You can see what I can do for you in some of the galleries on this website.  

Do you have an up-to-date head shot to use for a job search, a customer presentation, or your company website? Does your firm need a set of consistent headshots for client and customer materials and social media? You may be happy using a selfie for your profile on Instagram, but do you want that selfie to represent you professionally?  You'll be a lot more confident that a photo I make will win you a job or be worthy of hanging on a wall.  

It's fairly easy to get the exposure and focus right with the technology available in today's cameras and there are a lot of professional photographers around who get the technical part of photography right. How many times did your picture show off the real you? As Edward Steichen said, "A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it."

I describe some of my head shot and portrait services in the menus at the top of this website, but everyone is unique so I customize my services to address your circumstances. I have everything I need to make your photos where it is convenient for you and I will make your photos available on my website or we can use old-fashioned mail to get them to you. 

One important thing I do that is different from most photographers is that I don't try to make money on sales of photographs. My fees are for photography services and I have outsourced photo printing to one of the major professional labs. I will give you the digital files with a usage license so you can get prints made where you usually take them. I don't want to have to deal with sales taxes and so forth. 

Contact me so we can get to know each other and schedule a date for your portrait. I am looking forward to talking with you.

One last thing.  My wife, Sue, and I have been lucky to be able to travel to all seven continents now and we have a small collection of "wall hangers" available here.
