Our New Photography Website

Wonderful new photography portfolio

My first blog post here was a short bio about yours truly, the photographer and my work here in New Orleans.

Since then, I've been busy developing this new website and I must say, I am very happy with the way it has turned out. My previous website was "home made" if you will, using simple html code, and while it worked well ten years ago, it wasn't ready for 2018 or beyond. In fact, it was already way behind the need for mobile friendly websites.

There have been lots and lots of changes in web site coding, search engine technology and photography since I published my first photography website back in 2006. Staying ahead of the curve in these three different universes at the same time can be quite a task. As much as I like any new learning challenge, I often wish I could spend more time doing photography instead of designing my website and reading about Google's latest algorithms and how they affect me in the search engines.

A website is not just something that sits there on the internet. It is almost a living, breathing thing that needs constant attention. As I move forward, adding photos to my portfolio gallery and tweaking the new website you see here, I hope my future clients find the information and images helpful to them in choosing a photographer for their needs. There are lots of photographers to choose from in New Orleans....each with his or her own style. I hope my work inspires a phone call from you!

If you're local or from out of town and planning a corporate event, be it a convention, trade show or a commercial photography project here in New Orleans....or perhaps a destination wedding in New Orleans, you've come to the right photographer. In fact, no matter what your professional photography objectives may be.....convention, conference, product photography, corporate headshots, commercial projects, promotional headshots, editorial photography, weddings, modeling or even family portraits, New Orleans is a great place for it. From the unique Saint Charles Avenue trolley cars, mansions, elegant hotels, Morial Convention Center and Audubon Park to the Warehouse District and down to the French Quarter, New Orleans has it all when it comes to beautiful backdrops.

Most photographers who live in New Orleans or visit New Orleans absolutely love all the things it has to offer in terms of creating beautiful, high energy photographs. It doesn't matter if you're into architecture or people, lifestyle photography or editorial photography, if you are a professional photographer, a semi-professional photographer or a tourist; the scenery in New Orleans is unique in every way. I guess you could easily say that New Orleans is definitely a "photographer friendly" city. We are different! You couldn't pick a better location for your wedding or your event photography!

New Orleans is a very special and magical city enjoyed by all who visit, get married here, live here or work as a photographer. As one of the most historic cities in the United States, New Orleans has a fabulous collection of photography-friendly and exceptionally beautiful locations to do your photo shoot, including the French Quarter and the Uptown area. The French Quarter and Audubon Park are perfect spots for wedding photography. The people in New Orleans are friendly too! 

As a photographer who likes to shoot in B&W, one of my favorite locations is the French Quarter. It provides wonderful contrast with it's historic buildings, wrought iron balconies and iconic locations. On the other hand, whenever I do formal wedding portraits, I prefer a lush, colorful, tropical environment, of Audubon Park uptown. Either way, it's wedding photography that's unique and beautiful. New Orleans is truly a photographer’s paradise. This is why so many commercial photographers including lifestyle and editorial photographers as well as wedding photographers love New Orleans as much as we do. In fact, these two locations alone will add unique elements to anyone's photography portfolio...including photographs of outdoor wedding ceremonies, actors headshots and modeling photography.

Even clients who live in the surrounding areas of Metairie, Kenner, Covington, Mandeville, LaPlace and even in Baton Rouge like to come to the city to take advantage of the scenery in the New Orleans French Quarter and Uptown. Imagine your wedding photography done in the surroundings of a beautiful, lushly planted French Quarter patio or Audubon Park among the Live Oak Trees.


Some of our work, like PRODUCT photography, requires the use of our studio with professional lighting and special seamless background paper to achieve the best images possible. If you are looking for a place in New Orleans to do product photography for your online commerce, store or catalog call us today. If you prefer to have your headshot or modeling photography work done in our Uptown New Orleans studio, we're minutes away from the downtown CBD, Tulane University and Audubon Park. We work by appointment only and we're located at 4437 Danneel Street near Napoleon and St. Charles Avenues in the historic Faubourg Bouligny area. 

Product or people, many clients have specific needs regarding backgrounds. A seamless, pure white background is often a necessity in order to facilitate additional graphic design work or ad copy needed to complete their advertising design. If your ad requires a pure white "infinity" background, let us know. We will have the photography studio set up in advance of your session appointment, allowing us to begin work immediately following your arrival. If your project requires "green screen" instead of white, please let us know at least one week in advance. 

Our photography work utilizes only professional photographer’s studio strobe lighting plus a variety of seamless paper or canvas backdrops that can perfectly compliment your product, portrait or portfolio. Whether you choose to have your photography done on location or in our studio, we specialize in creating beautiful, high quality photography at competitive prices! Best of all, our prints are meticulously processed by the photographer himself and printed using only premium, archival quality photographic materials. This is a particularly important consideration when it comes to wedding photography. Your wedding prints are guaranteed to last up to 50 years under normal conditions, without signs of color shift or fading. We use the best photo paper and materials because when it comes to preserving your memories, we know that our clients expect the best photography available.
