As one of the Bay Area's brightest and boldest emerging photographers, I am interested in meeting similarly talented people through Model Mayhem. I am seeking to build my portfolio of glamor, fashion and fine portraiture through working with fabulous models, designers, stylists, and make-up artists.
For me photography is about having fun and enjoying the process of creating a beautiful, interesting or compelling image. Since we are here to "build our portfolios", I take that to mean we are testing ideas, learning as we go, playing around, making some mistakes, finding what works. I like to see how the model and camera work together to create a look that is super-real. I like to collaborate with fashion designers and other artists to transform the models' appearance into something beautiful yes, but also meaningful and provocative in the grandest sense of those terms.
I used to study Aerospace Engineering in Minneapolis, but I got bored of science and moved to The Bay, where I've developed new interests. I worked in photo and video production for several years before deciding to return to school for art and develop my artistic vision. I graduated from SFSU with a B.A. in Photography and Painting in Spring 2010. I enjoy many forms of art and different styles of photography, but of course I am on Model Mayhem primarily as a way to meet people interested in fashion, glamour, dance, pin-up, and extraordinary portraiture.
Please feel free to message me if you'd like to work together.
