People add drama to life to hide and mask their own fears and limitations. If you’re pissing them off... you’re making a difference!
My Moto: be original or be forgotten …
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to visit my work here on my Model Mayhem page.
NOTE: I receive MANY friend requests, emails, tags and messages on this site a day. I thank EVERYONE for the all the feedback and I apologize for delay in answering messages. I try my hardest to answer all inquiries in a reasonable amount of time.
Please visit my blueox Photography web site for more information about me and expanded view of my portfolio at: www.blueoxphotography.com
A bit about me: My name is Jeff. I am originally from a small town in the Midwest. I moved to Hawaii after graduating from High School to attend a local university on scholarship. I am a white guy in a sea of colors and I LOVE it!
What is photography to me: To me photography is art and with EVERY shoot I challenge myself to grow as an artist. Photography is NOT a job or any sort of work for me, but rather is one of many hobbies’ of mine that allows me to express myself artistically.
My photography comes from many years of studying various types of art, and working with/in many types of mediums including sculpture, drawing and painting.
My art and photography skills are also supported by an odd mixture of training/education in backgrounds in such things as: theater, set design, physical/massage therapy, religion, as well as my being a trained Master level Social Worker.
Why blueox Photography and not Jeff Woodland Photography? Well, for a few reasons but mostly because my photography is about the work that I create and the people that I work with and not as much about me. (The actual name “blueox” comes from a favorite childhood memory growing up in Minnesota.)
I work primarily with male models. Most of the models I have worked with are new to modeling. Some of the men I have worked with have gone on to pursue modeling and photography full time some of them model part time on the side, and some of them model exclusively for me. My FAVORITE thing about photography is the: is that me? “wow factor” I can get with my models.
Over the past several years of being a photographer I've met so many interesting people, shared a ton of laughter, and made some wonderful friends. Contact anyone I have worked with and I am certain they will tell you it was a great experience.
You won’t find me having exclusive club parties or any type of VIP events however, if you’re on the island, please ask if there is a blueox BBQ in the plans. Come share some laughs in my home with me and the people I work with.
I'm available for paid editorial and assignment work, as well as portfolio development. My rates vary on the nature and size of project. Please see my company website for current general rates and more information. Email me for costs on specific custom designed shoots.

Oh... and of course I have a Facebook (Search under my name, Jeffrey Woodland).
