About Me - HankWest
  • About Me


I specialize in glossy magazine-quality portraiture for everyday people- women, men, and children. Not everyone can be a supermodel, but, I can photograph you like one. Family, Couples, Fine Portraiture and Personal Branding.

My goal is to deliver beautifully finished photographs that reflect the exceptional person you are. I don't just take pictures, I make them.

We'll take this collaborative journey together and create photographs that exceed your expectations. My goal on every photo shoot is to deliver the best images you'll ever have. My work is unconditionally guaranteed. There are no sitting fees and you only pay for photographs that you love. If you don’t look good, then I don’t look good

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love to provide extraordinary experiences and delivering archival photographs that blow my clients away.

Because being photographed is such a personal experience, I typically like to meet my prospective clients in person. I always find that best results are achieved if we meet first to discuss expectations, To make it worth your while, I’ll actually take a picture of you and deliver a free digital image in stunning b&w as a gift for you to use on your social media. If you think we’re a good fit, we go from there.

How did you get started?

As a kid, I was a hobby photographer. My neighbor and I set up a dark room and we photographed everything/anything and we developed film ourselves. I can't remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a camera in hand. Flash forward to 2007 and my daughter's wedding. Of course, I was snapping pictures, but, she had hired a friend who was a professional wedding photographer and the moment we got the ‘proof’s of her wedding pictures, I knew that professional photography is what I wanted to do. Now, just so you know, I am not a wedding photographer, My interest is fine portraiture, family, fashion and beauty. Up until 2013, I had a successful career as a corporate executive with one of the largest technology companies in the world. In 2013, I left corporate life to pursue my passion as a professional photographer. I moved to Central Florida in May of 2016 to be closer to my family.
