About MeNEWS UPDATES
I'm visiting Mexico City for 2 months (Dec - Jan)
I've published a new book: NOCTURNA. See my website for details.
I’ve downgraded my MM Account to the basic level. See my website and other portfolios: tumblr, flickr, deviantart, my website, etc to see my work in detail.
All the work I do is on TFP basis.
I do not really have commercial aspirations as a photographer... and unless someone offers me thousands of dollars, I probably won't consider any paid assignments. I do not offer (or have I ever offered) paid assignments. I am interested in working with people who are motivated in having great photos done.
Where does this all go? Whats the point of it all?
Half the fun of taking photos is sharing them... collectively on my social media, I get anywhere from 300 to 500 unique visitors viewing anywere from 5,000 to 10,000 photos every day. But the real point is to get these works into "Tier 1" art galleries / museum and to get some books published.

If you book me and stand me up the day of the shoot, you will not have a second opportunity to work with me.
