about Voltaire

I am a California native and self-taught photographer. All my life I have been inspired by images in movies, art, literature and magazines.

I discovered photography accidentally. A few years ago I received a camera as a Christmas gift. It sat in the box until my birthday when I celebrated with some friends and family at the beach. One friend wanted to become a model and I shot a roll of film and handed it to her. A week later she was picked up by Ford and I was approached by an agent to test models.

My work has been published by magazines worldwide including: GQ, Esquire, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Max, Playboy and others.

All deposits for photoshoots are non-refundable. If you have a cancellation we can reschedule. Please contact me regarding my rates as they vary depending on the assignment.
