Retirement from over three decades of an exciting and rewarding career in the Hollywood film industry and entertainment non-profit sector finally allowed me time to relax and enjoy Southern California. I had always been an avid fan of photography and my weekend hobby of focusing my camera lens on my proud United States Marine Corps' foster-son and his Marine brothers developed into a full-time second career. Many of the candid and casual photos of his platoon buddies taken during weekend liberty were often requested and sent home to their appreciative — and equally proud — parents, wives and girlfriends.

My main focus through the years has been Portraiture photography and I have amassed several thousands of formal, casual and candid photos of The Few and The Proud and their many civilian friends.

I am currently editing my collection down to a few — and proud — hundred outstanding photographs representing the elite of the United States Marine Corps. The collection will soon be published as a hardbound coffee table book, eBook and iBook — GODS OF WAR / Angels of Peace.

I am actively seeking additional Marines to be included in my book, so if you are interested in participating, I would like to hear from you TODAY! Also, you'll receive your finished photos for your own use. If you'd like to preview GODS OF WAR / Angels of Peace, please click on this link — www.SemperFoto.com — and you'll be taken to my other website to view just a few of the photos being included in the photo book so far. (Just click the BACK button in your browser to return to this website.) 

As I am only available for a limited number of photo sessions, please contact me to schedule an appointment for a future photo shoot.
