one of the finest portrait photographers in california...


Larry has created portraits for thousands of people over the years. He has refined his work into a style that is both modern and classic. His ability to put people at ease and keep them entertained throughout a session has earned him a loyal following.


Larry got his start in photography when he was hired by a local studio when he was only 16 years old. It was at that studio that Larry would learn every aspect of photograhy from the ground up. He spent every free hour he had learning the craft of photography and the art of portraiture.


Growing up inside the industry, Larry learned from some of the great photographers of our time. He was fortunate to learn from the likes of Master Photographer Ken Cook and international icon Ansel Adams.


He was one of the youngest photographers to ever earn the degree of Master Photographer from the Professional Photographers of America . This is a degree only earned on the merits of your work as reviewed by panels of Master Photographers. Larry also holds the degree of fellowship photographer from the Professional Photographers of California and is a member of the American Society of Photographers.




"I love what I do. I get to create beautiful images of people every day and have a lot of fun in the process. I am more passionate then ever to create exciting new images with the new tools of this digital age. It has been a joy to photograph so many thousands of people that make up our special community on the Monterey Peninsula. I have spent my career trying to produce images that not only make my clients happy but exceed their expectations. I feel my clients recognize my love for photography and dedication to its craft and that is one of the main reasons we are still busy after all these years."
