Thanks for checking out my portfolio! I'm a photographer and musician from the South Jersey/Philly area, and I split my time pretty evenly between both of those passions. I graduated from the University of the Arts
in Philadelphia with a BA in Classical Composition
and an MAT in Music Education
. I have always had music as an artistic expression aurally and in performance, but I always wanted to find an outlet to express myself visually in the arts as well. I found that outlet through photography.
My main love in photography is shooting people - whether it's a simple headshot or a complex model shoot with sets, props, makeup and the works. But, the female form is my primary focus artistically - capturing a woman's beauty, either in sculpture, painting or film, is a timeless pursuit, and finding new ways to capture it is a challenge that I adore. Early 20th century painter, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner believed the nude was the "Basis of all visual art", and I believe his theory has been proven by the sheer amount of work dedicated to the subject.
I presently consider TF* work on a "per-job" basis; if you have a great idea that I think would be fun to shoot and add to my port, let's do it! Otherwise, my rates are very reasonable and I will work with each client to provide them with a shoot that fits into their budget. Shooting is one of my greatest joys, so I like keeping my shoots laid back and fun! I love talking with and getting to know my subjects before the session so everyone is comfortable and confident going into the shoot. I take my work very seriously, but when the mood on a set or in the studio is relaxed, upbeat and fun, everyone benefits. My motto: "If the talent is happy, EVERYONE is happy!"
So, if you like my port and if you're interested in possibly discussing a project, concept or idea, please contact me through Model Mayhem, via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Best of luck to everyone in your endeavors!!
