I have a passion for the traditional art of film photography... I love the grain, the lack of instant gratification, the feel, the mood and the whole process of using a film camera... A good shoot can be better than sex... well... maybe not that good... but close! I love edgy, unique personalities... People that think outside the box and let me capture that in an image... I have exhibited my work in San Diego and Los Angeles in various art galleries and shows hosted by RAWartists.org. In 2011, I was voted one of the top 5 photographers in the city of San Diego via the RAW awards show. Now that I've got that out of the way, I am a humble artist and my harshest critic... I still have tons of room to improve and my ultimate dream would be doing my art full time and showcasing my work around the world... It's a big dream and I'll never stop pursuing it... In the meantime, I need models and locations! I've traded my lovely sunny California for beautiful New Zealand and will be here on the South Island for a little while at least... During my stay here, I'd like to find cool spots to shoot and interesting people to photograph... willing victims if you may... I do travel and plan to explore all of NZ, as well as visit Austrailia and the Pacific Islands... So if you are somewhere on this side of the world and interested in shooting, I'm sure we could make it happen someway, somehow.
As for pay.... I do not charge a rate unless it is for a standard portfolio shot, or special event such as a wedding or something you've hired me to do obviously. I also do not pay models to shoot as film is crazy expensive... So if TF is good for you, let's do this!
**This just in... I now have a professional digital camera... Yes, that's right I've crossed over... I have not abandoned film, but have definitely broadened my horizons... Stay tuned for updates to my portfolio.
