I have been on a photographic hiatus for several years now. As we get older, sometimes life hands us a few sour grapes and I am no exception. Due to health circumstances, I have not been shooting for some time and am not sure how much I will ever be able to do in the future. That said, the world of photography is still one of my passions. The same is true of technology and perhaps that is why I love photography so much - it is, in my mind, a perfect medium for a blend of the two. Even Ansel Adams was well known for his dark room skills, so it isn't just about what we "make in the camera." Editing has always been a part of the process and in the digital age, this trend continues ... but with a much more broad array of possibilities. So, for those of you who are still shooting, I look forward to the art that you and your teams will make.
I am a semi-professional photographer who shoots primarily to create stock for personal projects. While I have been known to accept a commercial assignment from time to time, doing so is not my main focus.
Over the course of my photographic career, I have shot mostly wildlife and scenic, something that has always been my first love in regard to photography. I would, however, like to incorporate models from time to time. At one point, I was shooting models strictly for the purpose of creating glamour and artistic images, so it seems like a good idea to mix the two interests every once in awhile.
I have shot primarily black models and truly enjoy doing so, because they have a beauty that is wide ranging and wonderful. As great as these shoots have been, I would like to shoot a variety of women in the future, so all are enthusiastically encouraged to contact me! I want to work with beautiful Asian women, Caucasian women, East Indian women, Hispanic women and, yes, more women of African descent!
