keep up with myself. But I never message anyone for the hell of it. It is either because I really REALLY enjoy their portfolio, and/or I want to work with you! there are many talented people on this site and it gets overwhelming how many people I'd like to shoot.

With that being said:

My photos are actually paintings of photos. I take the pictures and I overlay the image with the right colors and shading. This is why they have that cartoon look to them.


Each piece pretty much expresses an idea or philosophy that I have acquired during my experience in life. I see alot of problems in my direct generation and also the society that surrounds me. I try to express these issues using some kind of narrative structure to each picture where irony, metaphors and symbolism carries the context of the piece. My work has a very simple aesthetic to it because I feel that every item in the picture needs to be a strong part of the theme that is being conveyed.
    When people see my art I want them to be able to see issues in a new light. Some people have fallen into a world where others decide for them, media tells them what to enjoy, commercials tell them what to buy and celebrities tell them what to like. This way of living is not living. It's individuality that creates a life, but when MTV is force feeding my whole generation on how to experience life I feel it kills authentic souls. My art is aesthetically connected with the types of images that magazines would be able to use in order to sell anything, because many of my pieces include sex, drugs and violence, but unfortunately this aesthetic is necessary in order for my work to hit the people who I think have fallen into this problem. If sex sells to the public, I am hoping the public will "buy" my philosophies toward life and adapt them them to their own in order to be a more well rounded individual and not a puppet of the world around them.
   I also have a deep passion for movie posters as it was how I developed most of what was visual pleasing to me. I love the old style playbills, but have been lucky enough to pay for my passion of fine art photography with some great clients like HBO that luckilly have appreciated my work as a commercial aspect to their shows. With that being said I work with multiple incredible art directors and am not fully responsible for the ideas of my commercial work. It is an intricate web of talented people and I am happy to be the photographer that is able to work with them. As far as my fine art goes, they are all conceptualized, shot and edited by myself, but if you have an idea that you think matches everything I have talked about here, please don't hesitate to message me!
   

Also, if you are a model that enjoys the concepts and would like to work with me, leave me a message and we could talk.

Oh Yeah, and please don't friend me without telling me something about anything first... I don't get that...
