I have a strong interest and passion for all things artistic in life. I would love to work with people that want to explore the mood, energy, shape and emotion of our humanity with light and shadow.
If I email you for a TFP shoot please understand that I do not profit in any way from our work together. Therefore I am not able to compensate you with cash. I do however provide you with a CD of all the images we shoot that day before you leave. I also Photoshop your favorite 5 images for you. I hope that after looking at my portfolio that you will see the quality of my images and find value in working with me.
I receive emails all the time saying “this sound to good to be true” and “what’s the catch”. In fact I am updating this because I just received an email from a model who was quiet incredulous about my professional status and I quote “I am confused about how you can possibly be a full time photographer and not profit from your photo sessions. Answer that for me. I'm not young, I have a well accomplished husband, and just wondering how you can live off of TFP..?”
My answer is simple. I shoot a limited amount of TFP and only in my spare time. TFP give me the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and hone my craft. Practice, practice, practice!
Photography has been a passion of mine since I was a child. As you can see by my portfolio I love having the camera in my hands. I love the feeling of getting lost in my creative soul. Of chasing that one elusive image that speaks to viewer and conveys that moment in time. Whether it is life, love, dignity, beauty, ugliness, emotion, harshness of life or the joy of a child just everything!
I am totally comfortable working with new or inexperienced models, as well as fulltime professional models. I pride myself on creating a fun and relaxed environment to work in. I can walk you through posing and facial expressions or just let you do your own thing! You are always welcome and encouraged to bring a friend along to the shoot if you like.
For me it is about the journey and being in the moment!
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in working together.
