fototaker in San Francisco - Vision of an Artist

Your Bio

Thank you for visiting and viewing my imagery ~ I appreciate your coming to see my galleries and hoping you enjoy seeing my images. I'm a freelance American photographer living between Rota, Spain and San Francisco (where I am now), but with my heart in the Pacific NorthWest! I am always looking to capture details of the street, the events of our daily routines, and of Life and my little World as seen through my lens. I've got a passion for reflections, people, color, animals and yes: Black and White. I rarely retouch my images, preferring the tradition work of solid straight photography versus special effects and PS add-ons. The rare times I tweak my images is to present it as I actually saw it. I love to write also... if you read any words in the image caption, it's my words.

My images and words cannot be copied, or used in any manner or in any virtual or printed media.

You can also catch my everyday thoughts at G+ as *fototaker Sf,* and my very many older (not recent work) imagery and calendars at I love hearing from viewers of my imagery and would love to hear what you think of my work. "Talk" to me by sending *email* to fototaker at gmail dot com

I have many calendars available including team calendars of America's Cup which can be viewed at Please tell me if you like them! I would love to know what you think!

I am a full-time photographer. If you need a precise and understanding photographer for your wedding, event or just to capture your Life for a brief few moments, please contact me. I travel and have a passport, and have been to Australia, the UK, and other locations as an honored photographer to capture someone's special moments; I'd love to be your photographer ~ let's talk!
