A Little About Me:

I'm 36 years old and live on Long Island with my beautiful wife and 1 year old daughter. I've been shooting headshots since January of 2013 and have been employed in various sales, marketing and distribution management positions with a global communications company since 2006. I've combined my sales and marketing background with my photography to help corporations, small businesses and individuals to turn their headshots into career-boosting marketing tools.

Not All Headshots Are Created Equal:

My headshot sessions are very different from what you may have experienced in the past.  Some photographers will sit you in front of their camera, snap a picture of your face and call it a headshot.  That's not a headshot, that's a high school yearbook photo.  My mission is to help you create your personal brand.  We'll discuss how you want to portray yourself prior to your shoot and then I will spend time coaching you to achieve that look.  It could take 30 minutes or it could take 3 hours.  We might shoot 50 images or we might shoot 500.  I don't put a limit on any of that.  Why is all of this so important?  Because this isn't just a picture...this is your BRAND.  


I will leave you with this image of the Senior V.P. of Coca-Cola in North America.  If your headshot looks like this, it's time to rebrand.  And if you happen to know this guy...tell him to call me.


I have 3 goals as your Headshot Photographer:

1. Create an image that represents your personal or corporate brand identity
2. Create an image that resonates with confidence and approachability
3. Have fun while doing the above!


All of my sessions include a pre-shoot consultation and a post shoot gallery review to choose your images.
All of my retouching is done by Alexandria Thompson, one of the best retouchers in LA and all of my printing is done by ColorworksNYC, the best damn print shop in NYC..
