I remember as a child spending hours look through photo albums, slides and framed photos hanging on the wall. Even today, pictures of my grandparents as kids, playing with me, playing with my parents when they were kids.
Digital photography has advanced this craft in many ways but, it’s also been detrimental to photographs, in my opinion, and here’s why. Now we shoot EVERYTHING on our phones, iPads and cameras but very few of these photographs see the light of day, except for on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and the like.
Photographs are made to be shown, displayed, not sitting on a phone, CD/DVD, on a computers hard drive. A CD doesn’t look very attractive hanging on the wall but a WELL TAKEN, FRAMED photograph is something special, something that you can pass down through the generations.
I want to be a part of capturing YOUR SPECIAL MOMENTS.

As a teacher I often hear, “I’m not worried. I’ll fix it in post.” Can you really fix it in post? It depends. If you’ve overexposed your shoot there’s not information to fix. If you’ve underexposed it, you do have [...]
I’ve never lived IN Long Beach but lived near it since 1971. It’s gone through incredible transformation over those many decades – some good and some . . . . . not so good. In my opinion it’s on the [...]

Portrait photography or portraiture is photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background or context may be included. That’s the way Wikipedia describes it. Overall it’s pretty accurate.
More photos to come.
