About me

Thanks for taking the time to check out my work.

Photography is both a job and a passion in my life.  I love the challenge of turning a concept into a finished image.  I really enjoy working with models who are physically and emotionally expressive and who enjoy opening up to allow their "inner dimensions" to find expression.

I love collaborate on creating an image.  If there's a look you want to try, let's explore how to make it a reality.  I really appreciate a models willingness to collaborate in the development of an image.  I could not create my images without the significant contributions of the models I work with.  I treat everyone I work with with respect and require the same standard of anyone assisting on a shoot. At the same time, I'm relaxed, easy going and love to laugh.

Working with male models is my primary focus.   I'm fascinated by images of men which depict depth, sensitivity, gentleness, complexity, intensity, etc. I'm really passionate about creating powerful and compelling images. 
I always have several projects in the works.  Right now I am working on a series of images of men focusing on their hands.  Guys with "beautiful hands" (whatever that means) let me know if you are interested as it's possible you might be a perfect fit.

Please know that I am experienced in Photoshop processing and can achieve a broad range of styles in my finished product.  Show me an image that you like and lets discuss how to achieve it.  If it's out of my range of skills/talents I will let you know.

I am primarily on Model Mayhem  to build my portfolio and yours and to refine my style. As such, I am open to TFP/TFCD trades.  If you don't have a look that fits with my portfolio's goals I will let you know that.  I am however open to a broad range of looks and styles.

I'm passionate about life.  I enjoy working with men and women who are comfortable with themselves, not afraid to express their vulnerability, naturalness, and who want to leave this planet someday feeling like they learned something about themselves along this journey. 

If your new to modeling and have almost no professional pictures in your portfolio and I message you and say I would love to shoot with you that's because I think you have some great potential. I think you bring to the table some raw talent that has the potential to create some amazing images. If your hesitant or unsure feel free to inquire or ask questions.  My only goal is to create images that you and I can both be proud of.

One final note about shooting nudes or partial-nudes. I do shoot artistic nudes and have been told it is some of my best work but only when it fits with the models goals as well. On any shoot you should feel comfortable with the work being created.  I don't pressure models to do work outside of their comfort zone.

I look forward to the possibility of creating some awesome images together and if were lucky,  we may become friends in the process. Please feel free to message any of the models I have worked with and inquire about their experiences shooting with me. I' sure they would be willing to share their experiences.

Thank you to all the models without whom these images would not have been possible.
