I'm an early retire commercial photographer from Chicago - loving SLO btw. I was one of the portrait shooters for TIME magazine for decades and did a lot of work for agencies all revolving around portraits from my studios in Chicago and LA. I created some nice ad shots for United Airlines, American Airlines, PEOPLE, MasterCard, TV Guide, ABC Television and I even photographed three US Presidents.
I'm settled into SLO now in a "semi-retired" flow but I miss shooting location / environmental portraits so I am reaching out to the regional agencies and opening up to taking portraits for individuals again after a few years off.
Something tells me that my best images ever are still in the camera ready to come out. Please contact me if I can be of any help to you.
