I Just moved to Chicago- Let's make art (as often as possible)! I am a painter and photographer who uses painted, drawn and photographic images of the face and body as the palette and a metaphor. For photography I focus on fine art portraiture and figure work, as well as dramatic outdoor images for calendars and stock sales. These are my figurative, portrait and sometimes erotic work to (hopefully) express the beauty and sensuality of humanity. My work has appeared in fine art shows around the country.
I like to collaborate with models as well as to direct them, and appreciate thoughtful critiques and ideas. New creative projects with other photographers and models are always the goal. I am easy to work with, polite and respectful, interesting, innovative, reliable, and professional. You can see more of my 'normal' work on ArtClinic, MM# 394690 at-
If I want to hire you:
I shoot on location as well as in the studio, depending on the project, usually using studio lighting, but I love natural light when possible. I usually trade for non-nude work, unless I have a client hiring me for a specific project. My cameras are Canon, lighting is Lumedyne and Alien Bees and my printer is a professional quality HP roll that prints sizes up to 48 inches wide.
For your safety always references! Please contact any model linked on my portfolio, or I can provide additional names. We all need to feel comfortable so a single chaperone/escort is welcome (discussed and planned in advance), but they can wait nearby, directly witnessing the shoot will not usually be permitted.
If you would like to hire me:
I enjoy helping new models to create professional images for their portfolio, but only shoot for trade for creative people and projects. Feel free to contact me to discuss a potential collaboration and we can figure something out. I have a number of inexpensive packages, or we can arrange a trade to get you the most beautiful and professional images possible.
Let's make some art!
