I have been an alumni mentor for the Georgetown Scholarship Program since 2014.  This past weekend, my mentee graduated!  Ain’t he lucky to have a mentor with a camera?

Career Seekers

I provide free portraits for job-seekers who are referred to me by (or are enrolled in) job-readiness programs or other nonprofit social service programs.  Recently, I was able to shoot several young people enrolled in such a program in DC.  Here are some of their portraits.

Are my best photos people I already know?

I haven’t done any portrait shoots lately.  I think this year I will challenge myself to take great shots of models I’ve never worked with before.  I am usually quite pleased with the pictures I take when I know the model, but very hard on myself when it’s new folks.  This year I will let that go and just work.
