After working several years as a newspaper photojournalist, I stepped away from the daily grind to focus on my family. I am currently doing cosplay sessions, head shots, senior sessions and the occasional wedding in and around the Houston, Texas area.
The cosplay sessions afford me the opportunity to "produce" an image, or set of images. A mix of environmental portraiture and setting a mood or tone, the images I look for convey the feeling a character creates.
My experience as a photojournalist gives me the ability to pull together elements quickly, place the subject in an environment that tells something about who they are, and most importantly, make my subjects comfortable so "who they are" is reflected in the images.
