Due to an ever-increasing work load, I will be greatly limiting my TFP shoots until after the first of the year. I am still available for paid shoots and will at least give all TFP offers consideration. Please do not be offended if I turn you down for TFP. As much as I would love to shoot everyone who approaches me with an offer, I'm afraid I must limit my "free" shoots to unique ideas and/or those that can add to my portfolio (see update at bottom of profile).
My preferred style of shooting is black and white, natural photography emphasizing emotion, form, grace, strength, and beauty.
My main area of interest is maternity and newborn photography. I enjoy working with new and expectant parents to provide beautiful images they can cherish for a lifetime. While my wife was pregnant, I was awestruck by how beautiful and magical pregnancy can be. I have since been inspired to devote a majority of my time to this often overlooked area of photography.
I am always looking for new ideas for maternity and newborn photography and am ALWAYS willing to experiment with unique and unusual ideas. My main goal is to show how beautiful that period in a woman's life is and to break down many stereotypes people have about pregnant mothers. I believe a woman should feel beautiful and empowered during her pregnancy and I strive to capture images that depict this in a way that grabs the viewers attention and stirs an emotional attachment to the photograph.
PROJECT UPDATE I am giving strong consideration to adding figure and form studies to my portfolio. I am interested in experiments with light, fabrics, and shadowplay. If you are interested in this type of work, please feel free to contact me for details.
I also do bodycasting... please view MM#763317 for portfolio
