About this pro

I am a professional, Los Angeles based photographer/cinematographer since 1982. I have traveled more than thirty countries photographing people, places and things with a striking eye and singular passion for memorable images that tell an emotional story that I believe begins with my relationship with my subjects and the world around them.

As a cinematographer I’ve shot two feature-length documentaries and one narrative feature film. I am the recipient of a Best Film and Best Director award at the New York International Film Festival.

I am bilingual and take advantage of my bicultural background to incorporate the distinctive details of the subjects, locations and settings I photograph. 

l have extensively photographed Southern California's most unique and recognized locations.  

My passion as a photographer dictates that I completely pivot among all kinds of changing circumstances. My images possess great composition, they capture emotion while telling stories of unique people and iconic settings with natural light and color while still leaving something to the imagination.
