Al's work is amazing. His expertise as a photographer is not only evidence of years of experience, but the gift of a true artist. Al is professional, yet fun to work with. I have done 3 shoots with him and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting unique, flattering, artistic photos of one's self.

I modeled for Al over the summer at Huntington Beach, for a couples shoot. He's fantastic to work with, got there early, and knew what he wanted and how to get it. The images turned out excellent, and I'm proud to have his work in my modeling portfolio.
