Please take a look at my expanding portfolio. I am very open to comments, pro and con. How else does one improve? I love doing this and am open to suggestions. I like working in natural light, outside or inside. I try to keep things as natural as possible, with poses that don't look so posed. I do a lot of candids and street photography, often sending the pictures to those I capture. I rarely post those photos, and only do so with the knowledge and permission of the subject.
I invite models to contact me with suggestions. I like photos that tell a story, have something to say, something more than the ordinary. That's hard. I welcome models to contact me with their ideas of what might be interesting, fun, creative, unusual. I like working outdoors, great scenery and outdoor lighting.
I am getting comfortable with nudes, a new genre for me. But, I am not interested in implied nudes. You're either nude or you're not. Either is fine with me, but I try to leave a large margin between what I do and "erotic" photography. No interest in that. To quote a master painter, "The human body is the most beautiful of all God's Creation." Artists over time seem to favor women, and I agree. To reassure some models who are uncomfortable with nude work, nudity is not essential to expressing that beauty. But, what I am not inspired by is over posed or provocative photographs. Simple and honest, for me, is best. The photo that captures the spontaneous, human emotion is the photo I want to make.
I am quite flexible on days and times. Please contact me. I have a very limited budget for paid models, but will consider suggestions. I am happy to work with models who want to work to build their ports.
