Portrait and landscape photographer located in El Dorado Hills, CA

Hi, my name is Bob, welcome to my website! They say the “about me” page is one of the most visited pages of a photographer’s website. So hopefully you’ll find this informative.

I’m an El Dorado Hills, California based photographer specializing in action sports and portrait work. I primarily cover prep sports and endurance races including marathons, triathlons and Spartan events. I also provide team and individual photography to leagues both large and small as well as individual team parents and managers.

My portrait work is typically captured on location. These portrait sessions usually occur outdoors at one of the many scenic locations in the greater Sacramento area, including Roseville, Folsom, and El Dorado Hills. I use industry leading Profoto strobes to creatively light and create vibrant outdoor portraits. I also have a small home studio when formal portraits and headshots are needed.

My approach to individual portrait photography works best for folks who are not rushed and like to be involved in the creative process. I like to take my time to create unique photographs. Instead of quickly shooting hundreds of images and hoping for a few good ones, I prefer to take my time staging and lighting my subjects. It may take longer but the results are superior. I also love working with clients who bring their own ideas to the session. I think the best photos are created in a collaborative process between the photographer and client.

I graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting and am a certified public accountant. 

In my free time, I use my love of photography as a catalyst to travel. My landscape photos have appeared in several publications including USA Today and the Huffington Post and are regularly purchased for use by businesses large and small. You can find some of these photos on my blog and for sale as fine art on my website.
