And yes, I am colorblind, yes I can still see colors and yes I'm used to answering all sorts of questions about that. Despite how it sounds the term colorblind is applied broadly, I can see colors although I'm not very good at telling most of them apart.
If you were to ask me what I'm working on I'd say it's best described as whatever the hell I want! Abstract studies of shape, texture, color, light and dark are what I am most passionate about and intrigued by and I am exploring the ways the human body can be captured within that framework. I also have a lot of other concepts and interests slopping around in the back of my head.
I'm especially interested in artistic collaboration, a trade arrangement. I want a model who wants to share ideas and try things out. Some of the most enjoyable shoots I've done were when the model and I have worked together on a concept we're both vested in and just try things out. Through experimentation and refinement we just might come out with something we both love. I always love having new ideas bounced off me so if you've got something on your mind and you're looking for a photographer please don't hesitate to say something!
Some projects I've been rolling over in my head for years or are just general interests:
shoots in abandoned locations
various themed/costumed concepts
(semi)Sheer fabrics, backlit, cool poses... yes it's already been done a bazillion times but I haven't done it, and I'd like to!
To continue my abstract work I am looking for models with all body types & skin colors interested in doing figure study work. Talk to me if you're interested in this, there is a range of things I want to accomplish in part to create a continuum of subject matter from angular/mechanical man made to the organic human form.
Continued work on more locations, variations and concepts within the "lifeless and lost" concept I have been dabbling in. Check some of those out here.
I'm looking to work with more male models in general.
Ask me about more specific ideas, projects or other more recent things that haven't graduated to this list!
Don't assume I am comfortable with you bringing an escort. If you feel the need to do something we can discuss this but largely my policy towards escorts is of zero tolerance. If the person isn't needed as an assistant or can't actually be useful in any other way than they're just an unwelcome distraction. If you can't find a way to work around this... well sorry. If you show up with one I may end the shoot, I am making arrangements to work with you, not your posse. The conditions under which additional people would be allowed are limited and need to be discussed beforehand.
Oh, and if I send you a friend request then either you really are my friend or I really want to work with you.
