I photographed Mathius Gertz in Santa Monica recently and we had a great time. His wife, Angie Wells, is a makeup artist and it is always a pleasure to work with other talent to create stunning imagery. There are a million ways to light a subject but I especially enjoy rich skin tones and a little catchlight in the eye. We wanted to create an image that looked like Mathius does on an average day and I really think this one nailed what we were going for. I am proud to be known to capture people in their true essence and Mathius recognized that in my work. It is always so nice when people see your style for what it is and appreciate that about you. I feel so blessed and lucky to have clients that appreciate my eye and vision!
