About Me

For and for most my greatest appreciation and thanks to all the wonderful models who have worked with me over the years and those that will work with me in the years to come.  Without you my artistic ideas and visions would be limited to flowers and sunsets - no matter how good I am I couldn't have created anything without you. 

Looking back - 2015 is my 10th year on ModelMayhem. 

So right now I'm at a shift - much of 2014 was one setback after another - had lots of planned shoots, but few came to pass - I've sold almost all my gear to pay for my dogs surgery, yes I'm that kinda pet owner who considers them part of the family.

I've also recently retired from being a full time commercial/wedding photographer (self employment can be rewarding - but seldom financially so).  I'm looking to go back to the world of just doing this to nurture my creative side, to collaborate with models looking to create something besides "smile and look purty" pictures.


While I could probably replace most or all of my gear in the next year I think I'm going to hold off.  Simple gear and focusing on creativity.  Discover which of the gear I've let go I really miss, but see what I can do with just the basics.  Will be focusing on my deep love of black and white imagery and imagery that has a strong sensual vibe.

Ideally as going into 2015 I'd love to find a muse or two that I can work with more than once, I often find the best work comes with the confidence and trust from repeated sessions.   

Here's a list of stuff I've shot over the years with simple gear, and what I'm looking to focus on through 2015.

Drop me a note if you think you're interested in creating something along these lines.


Most of my work is TFP, yes even the nudes.   To me a photo shoot is a collaboration and exchange of talent to create something greater than either of us could have done without the other.   I do respect models that charge for nudes and consider it when she has the perfect look for a project, but understand I expect a true model, I ain't paying just to see boobies, I expect a professional who can collaborate with me to bring the vision trapped in my head into the world.   

What am I looking for in models?
I'm looking for a muse.  Someone with a desire to create imagery similar to what I'm working on.  Love models who bring their own ideas to a shoot and can be expressive.   Comfortable in their own skin a plus, able to connect with the camera and draw the viewer in.  While nudity is never required a willingness for a sense of drama, sensuality and a touch of eroticism is always helpful.

Blue Shift Infrared Project
*******************************


Greatly inspired by the amazing work of StudioCMC in Delaware
http://www.modelmayhem.com/300105
this studio infrared project is mostly done in a modified DSLR with one of the stock filters replaced with a traditional infrared filter - and then a few custom tweaks have been made.  I'm not the first photographer locally to do this - but my years of studio lighting skills combined custom white balance (in camera) and tweaks to the lights,  and the final results are fairly unique and striking amongst anything being done on the local level with this.  Printed on a metallic or pearl paper the prints are exceptional.  The effect is almost entirely done in camera with photography and not in photoshop.  The photoshop tweaks to these images are fairly light - just brightness and contrast for the most part - no more than I'd do for a good headshot or portrait.
