About me
My people perish from a lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4: 6)

Health is everything without which nothing is possible.

How difficult it has become to find a truly ugly girl.

A Nude Woman Is Always Well Dressed.

I have been very ill for quite some time and been unable to shoot or do much of anything. Sometime in 2014 I hope to get back to it.

If I contact you to book a shoot but you feel, for whatever reason, my work is not up to your standard and you do not want to work with me please just say so instead of childishly doing a no-show. It would be greatly appreciated.

Beginning with Van Gogh, we are all to a certain extent (regardless of how great we want to be) autodidactic - indeed, one could almost say, naive* - artists. Artists no longer live within a tradition, and each of us has to create his own possible modes of expression. Every modern artist possesses the right to create his own vocabulary from A to Z
                                                         *** Picasso (1881-1973)***
*Naïve arts: not using the conventional styles and techniques of trained artists, e.g. in the treatment of perspective or light and shade

I am a holdout of the Pictorialist movement in Photography from the last century.
When I print my work it is on canvas rather than paper. As a Pictorialist I prefer my images softly focused rather than sharply focused with the end result to look more like a painting rather than a photograph. I often use 19th century paintings as backgrounds as well as backgrounds shot without the model.  I keep the lighting as simple as possible to mimic sun light. I am not always successful in the conversion from concept to piece but I work hard at it gaining skills as I go. All is a learning process.

I use the nude female form in the sense that in mankind's purest form (before the fall of Adam) humans were nude and innocent. For this reason my models are under sexualized in most of my images. My goal is to create images of natural human beings (or in the case of Angels Supernatural Beings) involved in normal life.
