Hello. Thanks for taking a moment to view my work and background.
I am a Los Angeles, California based editorial and corporate photographer handling assignment work for some of the world's leading publications. Clients include TIME, Sports Illustrated, Smithsonian, Der Spiegel (Europe's leading news weekly
), People, National Geographic Traveler, Newsweek, and the Chronicle of Higher Education to name a few. I also work with some of the nation's leading non-profits including the Southern Poverty Law Center, Teaching Tolerance, National Public Radio and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. I've fulfilled advertising and corporate work for Costco Wholesale, Target Corporation, General Motors and SVI Holdings, Inc. To see examples of my published work, please click here
My work incorporates portraits, documentary subjects, sports, lifestyle and news.
I'm fortunate to have had my work exhibited multiple times in the U.S., France and Spain. Fourteen of my images from a long term essay on immigration
reside in the permanent collection at the California Museum of Photography.
Two of the images were also placed on permanent display at the Oakland Museum of California
in October, 2011. Other work is on display at Washington DC's Newseum.
In addition, several images documenting the Occupy movement in Los Angeles were exhibited at the NoHo Gallery in Los Angeles, projected at Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn and the Fovea Gallery
in Beacon, New York.
A Eddie Adams Workshop alumn with multiple years as a volunteer staff member, I've worked since the 1990's as a part-time, adjunct professor teaching photojournalism and visual communications at California State University, Northridge and a variety of courses, including Street Photography and Portrait Photography, at UCLA.
My two decades of experience in the freelance world has taught me plenty through trials and tribulations! I've been hired as a expert witness to provide information pertaining to copyright and licensing standards in the photo industry and decided to take this a step further. I have compiled much of that information into a workshop that focuses on the Business of Photography
and addresses many issues including image licensing, copyright, rate/term negotiations, client development and social media marketing, to name a few. I'm pleased to present this workshop as a means to help educate the next generation of photographers in a rapidly evolving market.
