A little about me..
This is my creative outlet that helps me remain nominally sane in this crazy world we live in. I've seriously been obsessed with photography since 2007. I enjoy working in situations or creating situations that create narrative or context in a photograph. I enjoy shooting digital and film. I frequently work with a number of medium format cameras and I process the film myself at home. I have a day job outside of photography and I am not pursuing photography from a commercial or advertising point of view. I consider myself a serious artist and I hope to have my curated works published internationally and in academic galleries.
Nobody Claps Anymore - a tableaux vivant project
The best way of describing it is a body of work that is staged environmental portraiture of a moody scenario with cinematic lighting. Sort of like a mini-Crewdson. I attempt to depict the those nagging things that haunt us every day. This is nothing like the photos here on MM... the type of people I would cast for this are average people with average lives with "issues" and are ok with me photographing them in their abode and revealing the side of the very personal side of their lives that haunt them. In fact, the more "normal" you are, better this is. Age doesn't matter. Gender doesn't matter. Only narrative and emotion. This body of work is clearly outside the realm of photographs that advertise.

More prurient work
My inner Mr. Hyde likes doing more prurient and lascivious photographs. These are definitely not the kinds of photographs that you want to show to mom!
Examples: Mr. Hyde
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 uniqu visitors viewing anywere from 3,000 to 5,000 photos every day.
flickr, tumblr, DeviantArt...
The cool thing about this publishing medium is that I get to have my ego stroked a bit when someone leaves a comment. So if you *like* my stuff say so! You'll make feel all warm inside... and just maybe... I won't be a grumpy, crusty person today.
Seriously, I enjoy getting feedback on my photos. So... like so many of us... most my photos wind up on flickr, DeviantArt, and tumblr so that they can be seen by the widest audience possible. Oh look! Links!
Yup... I'm doing one of those too. It will be big... bold... and heavy... and it will not be mistaken for a danity coffee table book. Used incorrectly, without proper supervision, will probably result in bodily harm, possibly death.
All the work I do is on TFP basis.
I do not really have commercial aspirations as a photographer... and unless someone offers me tens of 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.

A Warning to Flakely People
Fool me once... shame on you. Fool me twice... shame on me.
If you book me and stand me up the day of the shoot, you will not
have a second opportunity to work with me.
If you want to spy on my personal life and verify that I am, in fact, not an axe-murderer, feel free to friend me on facebook. (Full disclaimer: I like to post about all the things that you're not supposed to talk about... politics, religion, etc... and my views are so left and right wing that they connect like a mobius strip and piss just about everyone off.)
