Thank you for visiting my page! Nailwood Studios is my vision, my passion, and my art. I create images to display every page of your story!

Nailwood Studios was originally created to design album covers for local musicians who made their way into my parents recording studio, and has since blossomed into a full photographic experience! Including weddings, I also do photography for seniors, families, bands, political events, autos, and much more!

Using techniques I have acquired by working with other professionals I have arrived at my unique style. Rather than only making myself available for a few hours, or a couple hundred photos, I prefer to work harder for my clients. No time limits, no shot limits. Just great photos for you to share with your loved ones for the rest of your lives together, and many generations to come! The food, the dance, the music, are all for just one day. Your photographs will be are forever!

I've attended St. Louis Community College and taken many photography and photo related classes, including:

Electronic Photo Studio
Portrait Photography
Photo I, II and III
Color Photography
Photoshop I and II
Design I and II
...and quite a few others!

Being taught by other great photographers including Darlene McGhee, Renee Michael Trapaga and Tony Carosella have given me great insights and brought invaluable lessons and ideas for capturing that special moment.

From events to families, from seniors to weddings, Nailwood Studios will do everything to make your moment last forever!

I hope you will consider Nailwood Studios to capture your special day!

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, as well as a variety of other digital editing techniques available upon special request.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. I have done many photo shoots in available lighting during the morning, daytime, evening, and night. My personal preference is using artificial lighting where available light falls short. I always carry various flashes, because the sun is not always where you need it to be!
Is your media preference film or digital?
I shoot strictly digital media. While completely understanding the benefits of film to a photographer, the benefits are not always the same for the client. Since switching to all digital photography, I have had greater flexibility with my images and the ability to get them into your hands much, much faster!
How many photographers do you work with?
I will always shoot with an assistant. The first wedding I ever shot (back in my film days!) I almost missed an important moment because of a technical problem. Thankfully, my assistant captured the moment in its entirety! Plus, having a second set of eyes and a spare brain sometimes makes for better ideas for photographs!
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
If I cannot be present, I make sure to have someone else in my network of photographers ready to go to cover the event.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I've never booked more than one event in a single day. Primarily because my packages do not have time restrictions, so I can be available whenever my client needs me for the day that I am booked.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
See two questions above. "If I cannot be present, I make sure to have someone else in my network of photographers ready to go to cover the event."
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Besides two cameras in case of an emergency, I will also bring an assortment of lenses, as well as lighting equipment. There are many tools available to today's photographers, and I don't want to miss any opportunities because of a missing piece in my camera bag!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full-day or hourly charges depend on the event. For weddings, I typically will charge for a single day, rather than hourly. Senior and family portraits, however, I prefer to charge hourly.
