And thanks for asking but, no, I am not looking for another assistant:)


I am currently fully booked until May 2019.

If you'll be looking for new photographs next school year or beyond, let's talk sooner than later. 









1. SHARE - What are your selling points? Where are your now? Where do you want to go? And how do we help get you there? A quick 30 minute video chat may not cover everything, but it's a pretty good start.

2. PLAN - Creating a schedule with up to 30 photo ops is no easy task. To help guide you though the process, I have created a detailed series  of subject-specific insights aimed to identify, prioritize, and even influence some of the photo ops that have proven to work best. 

3. BOOK - Schools are responsible for booking and pre-paying hotel and transportation costs. Meal expense and/or local transportation receipts can be settled by petty cash or added afterwards to the final invoice.








4. SHOOT - Though final results will vary, typical schedules cover between 12 to 15 photo ops per day. Over a 2 day shoot, you should end up with aproximately 400 solid images that should last you about 2 years.


5. PRESENT - Upon completion and final edit, you will be provided with a watermarked gallery of finished works so as to demonstrate the results of the assignment. Only upon your satisfaction will we issue an invoice.


6. DELIVER - Once final payment has been received, you shall receive the full-resolution files of all completed works in digital form within 48 hours via Dropbox or equivalent digital delivery service.




1. I UNDERSTAND - I understand that excellence extends beyond the classroom, and that when in comes to driving new enrollments in competitive markets, first impressions really count. I also understand the logistic challenges of successful photo campaigns and how to navigate those challenges in the most efficient and fruitful way possible.

2. I SPECIALIZE  - There may be cheaper, or closer, photographers out there. But with almost 200 international school campaigns under my belt, the insight I provide my clients simply can not be compared. The level of logistic support and professional experience I bring will not only elevate your school's image, it's one of the things that set my work apart.

3. I'M LESS THAN YOU MAY THINK - When it comes to the bottom line, of course every dollar counts. Considering the expertise and quality of work I provide, you'll be surprised at just how competitive my rates truly are even when compared to more locally sourced commercial photographers. Averaged at a cost of less than 5 USD per final shot, you'd be hard pressed to find a bigger bang for your buck anywhere else.

4. YOU'RE WORTH IT - Your school has invested considerable resources into upholding the highest standards and best educational experience possible for your students. It only stands to reason that your photography does the same.
