Working with the Hard Knox Roller Girls for my fourth year 2009-2013
Internationally published Photographer
I am looking to build the fashion side of my portfolio. I am interested in shooting with all types of people on a limited TFP basis. I find the darker, gothic photos seem to fit my rock 'n' roll style of photography. The more outlandish & bizarre the better! Traditional glamor shots while pretty are not my style. I shoot for two reasons, for the sake of art or for paying clients. I am also hoping to build a little network of models that I can photograph on a regular basis. Quite often I am asked to refer models for shoots and events. Having a list of go to models makes the task of having reliable and dependable models for these shoots a reality.
I welcome models to bring along an escort to any shoot. This is for your safety as well as mine. I find having someone that knows you well that I can ask for their opinion makes for a better shoot. I am always very professional yet we will also have fun during our shoot. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have on your mind. I also entertain any ideas that you may have for a specific type of shoot.
My style of shooting has been basically "Gonzo" a term coin by Hunter S. Thompson. I put myself into the shot and get my hands dirty if need be. You won't see me in a suit and a tie, I do not try to impress anyone. Many people appreciate my straight forward and honest opinion and some it will leave a bitter taste in their mouth, either way I get the shot. You can call my style a bit Rock 'n' Roll too. After all I have photographed hundreds of musicians and bands, local and national. You will find I have a great sense of humor that is very diverse and you will often hear me crack jokes often at my own expense. I get this from being around and photographing many comedians. Sometimes I steal their jokes but will give them credit after I get the laugh thus getting the shot. To me my photography is more than a job, more than a hobby...it is my life! My life is pretty interesting, I love new adventure, I try something new each and every day. I would tell stories and my friends and family would say I was full of it,...now I put it in photos for the whole world to see and for my own personal amusement. I have a large and diverse group of friends and associates that allow me to photograph their lives as well as allowing the world to see them through my eyes.
