What is South Bay Photography all about? One word...FUN! I try and make any shoot I do fun. Whether it is a model shoot, landscape shoot or just shooting candids, I try and make it fun, relaxing and enjoyable. That is the name of the game at SBP.
I started shooting photography in 2002. It started one day at lunch with my friends as we discussed putting a calendar together with all the vehicles we had and pretty women we knew. All of a sudden I was setting up the model shoots and handling the photography. I seemed to be a natural at it. It's now a few years later and I'm still going strong! Has to say something, eh?
South Bay Photography was founded in 2004, and initially started out as MG Productions two years prior, but after some changes and redesign, SBP was born. I do perform shoots in a variety of locations, so contact me with any location questions.
My adrenalin pumping hobbies include racing road race motorcycles on the track, racing motocross (MX) and drag racing cars. I am originally from the "Motor City" (Detroit, Michigan) so I think all of these fall into place with me. These are definitely passions of mine, as well as the photography I do.
In 2006, I refined my sports shooting enough to actually be accepted as a member of Sports Shooter. This was a very important achievement for myself, as the best of the best sports shooters, as well as photo journalists are a member of that site. The application process is long and brutal, but it is all worth it if you make it in. So, I do have to say that I am a proud member of Sports Shooter!
In April 2009, I started shooting for Southcreek Global Media, which is a mainstream media company. I'm very happy to be working with them. I shoot a lot of different types of events for them, but mainly I shoot sports for them. They send the images out to Sports Illustrated, ESPN the Magazine and many, many other companies/magazines. I can definitely say I'm proud to be part of their team! As of October 2011 I also joined the Cal Sport Media team. I am very happy to be working with them as well.
Some changes have developed recently that I wanted to note. Unfortunately, in March of 2012, Southcreek Global Media had closed their doors, so I will no longer been shooting for them. However, during that time, I ended up shooting for Zuma Press and am very happy that they have picked me up as one of their photographers. In March of 2012, I have also shot for PictureGroup as well. So, that has been some great news to come along recently that we wanted to share with all of you!
Well, enough about me! Why don't you email me about setting up a photo shoot and this way we can get to know one another and create some phenomenal photos in the process!
