About Me

Portrait of a smiling male photographer in a white shirt holding a Nikon camera

Hello. I am a business and portrait photographer based in Tampa, FL. Known for impressive craftsmanship, my striking images have appeared on Bloomberg, on major local TV news programs, in numerous newspapers and magazines such as the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Luxury Las Vegas, in support of editorial content for The Dodo and Best Friends Animal Society, and in numerous business publications and annual reports. Recent clients include Willis Towers Watson (WTW), TPC Tampa Bay, Embarc Collective, GoDaddy Social, the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, and Blue.cloud.I have been featured on Fox 13 Tampa Bay and in 2020 I was chosen as one of only 200 portrait photographers nationally to participate in 10,000 Headshots, the largest photo initiative of its kind to help thousands of Americans unemployed due to COVID-19.I am a professional photographer, but I am also a former Wall Street investment banker and entrepreneur with an MBA from a top-tier business school. I also served as the Director of Strategy and Corporate Development for Caesars Interactive Entertainment, the owner of the World Series of Poker and the world’s largest online, mobile and social gaming company focused on casino entertainment. This experience helps me to understand the needs of businesses and business owners first-hand. Individuals and businesses alike trust me to create gorgeous, magazine-quality images for them.

Images for You

"Authenticity and elegance never go out of style."

Makeup artist and female model

I can accommodate however you want to be photographed, wherever you want to be photographed and with whomever you want to be photographed. You can plan it as a “Girls’ Day Out” with champagne and hors d’oeuvres. Or we can create a “GQ” magazine session for the guys in my studio or outside of it with their prized motorcycle, classic car, or boat. Your Ultimate Portrait Experience is really all about you.

Portrait photography has changed since the “glamour” style portraits of the past. Today, it has become more “Fashion Magazine Style”. My fashion inspired, magazine-quality portraits and team of hair, makeup and styling artists insure all of my clients look and feel like a model for a day.
