The Skinny

Photo by Rachael DeSoto

I decided it might be fun and helpful to other people in my situation to chronicle my steps to becoming a professional wedding and portrait photographer.

I have had a successful career in the motion picture industry as an Assistant Director. I like working in film but I want to live in St. Louis and have a life here. Since there is no regular film work in St. Louis, I have to do something else and photography is going to be it.

I will do my best to keep this blog updated and current, but when I’m working on a movie there may be months where I can’t make any posts.

I hope this turns out to be a beneficial use of my time and it’s helpful to others in my situation. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
