Actor Head Shots | Portrait Photographer, Denver Colorado

There's nothing so satisfying to a photographer as combining an expressive and devilishly handsome face with an evocative spot of natural light in the city. I love my job!

Telluride AIDS Benefit Photo | OSCARS Poster

Hmmm... So this was just brought to my attention.

On the right, my photo, designed and photographed for the Telluride AIDS Benefit Art Auction in 2010. On the left, this year's just released OSCARS poster, designed by Olly Moss.

Copyright law is tricky, but it is sort of uncanny, don't you think? I sure wouldn't mind some tickets to the Oscars...

Environmental Portraiture | Denver Colorado

Sometimes it still catches me off guard how much I love photographing people.

I mean, I'm a photographer. And I genuinely love people. So I'm not sure why this should surprise me, but it does.  I think it's my background: architecture doesn't move, or feel self-conscious. Or blink.

But seriously, even with the unpredictability inherent in photographing a person, I can hardly explain how much of a thrill I find in making a person FEEL how beautiful they are. Maybe there is some thrill in not knowing what I'll discover in that session. Finding a gorgeous spot of light, setting a person at ease, making someone smile from their eyes ... it gives me butterflies just thinking about it.

And when the result is a set of photos like this? Crazy love. Seriously.
