Before opening my first studio on Cannery Row, I was assistant to a well known advertising photographer in San Francisco. Later on I worked from my own studio in New York City and then as a photographer and cinematographer in Miami. I am now shooting from my large, well equipped photo and video production space in downtown Monterey. We are uniquely positioned to serve all of your visual needs, which today can include both still photography and 4K video content for the same project. I invite you to join our ever growing family of satisfied clients.
