About Me

UPDATE: As of Sept 2014, I will be on a hiatus until further notice while I start a new chapter in my life and focus my attention on our first child, a baby girl!
Also revamping port with new images from the MANY models I have worked with!

I am a fun, friendly and very easy going photographer who enjoys capturing elegantly beautiful and alluring photography. I want to create art that is intensly creative, sensual and captivating that takes hold of the viewer and transports them into a story--which stirs the senses beyond the visual and gives meaning and reason to art. This is a passion of mine; I LOVE what I do!

"Photography is not about what we see, it's about what we don't see."

Hopefully by now my pictures and experience begin to speak for itself. In the five years I have been part of this community, my work has evolved as it probably does for every one else. In the beginning it is a struggle to just get the exposure right, then to get an image I like, then to finally get images someone else might like. Please visit my portfolio to see for yourself; I have attempted to showcase some of my best work from the many models I have worked with.

I am an active member on MM, checking and replying to messages daily. If interested in working with me and expanding your portfolio, please be diligent with your communication. A good first impression starts with communication followed by showing up to our shoot on time.

We should be able to schedule every detail of the shoot within 20 messages.
This includes agreeing on the concept(s) we will shoot, what clothing, shoes and accessories to bring, hair and makeup, location, date and time of shoot, shoot length, compensation, escorts, picture exchange and contact info.

In my other life, I am a successful and well respected business professional for a recognized industry leader. I have a Bachelor's degree, married to a beautiful and loving wife, love traveling, animals and going to the movies.

If you are NEW to the industry or an EXPERIENCED model, I would love the opportunity to work with you! My goal and challenge for us is to capture that next-new and unique MOMENT IN TIME that captivates the viewer!

Let's work together to capture more than just a pretty face, but an entire package. Let's be dynamic and incorporate body language, emotion, movement, wardrobe, accessories, hair and makeup, props and the location into every concept we shoot. Let's think outside the box, have an open mind, push the envelope, take risks, make mistakes, have fun, hold nothing back and create some AMAZING ART! Let's bring a high-level of energy and a creative mindset where our visions can come alive!

Models bringing escorts, bring whomever makes you turn into that sexy beast for the camera! All I ask is you stay focused, be confident, and have fun!

I usually work with models who can do their own hair, makeup and nails, but if you are interested in a makeup artist or you require a manicure, pedicure or waxing/Brazilian before the shoot, we can definitely discuss this.

Models be safe, never do ANYthing you don't feel comfortable doing, EVER!
I often check you out to see if you're rad or not, you should do the same!
I dig elegant, classy, dynamic, energetic, funky, risky, sexy, edgy, sultry, alluring, abstract, emotive, imaginative, artistic... the possibilities are endless!
I prefer LOCATION over STUDIO shoots, but can shoot wherever anywhere!

My PRIMARY focus are ideas within the glamour, fashion, elegance, lingerie, implied, artistic nude realms and any other style of photography that is fun, creative, classy or artistic. Additionally, the nudes I shoot are most similar to what you see in playboy or up to met-art style including spreads.

My SECONDARY focus are ideas geared towards beauty, casual, swimsuit, pin-up, school girl, cheerleader, athletic, Suicide Girl, boy/girl, girl/girl, body paint, graffiti, nightlife/clubbing, gothic, vintage and fantasy, graveyard, rose petals, silhouette, construction, railroad tracks, bridges, studio light/dark/shadows, location shoots in the rain, sun or snow and any other themes/concepts you would like to explore.

Let's capture a moment in time that wins the pic of the day!

I am willing to shoot TFP to experiment and build our portfolios.

At my discretion, I am willing to provide compensation that is negotiable and based on several factors such as the concept(s) we shoot, your experience level and the location and length of the shoot.

Here is my standard model release agreement in .doc or .pdf for your review.
A custom release can always be scripted to meet the requirements for any shoot.
I typically provide all the original high-quality pictures (.jpg format) from the shoot via a high-speed download link. At my discretion, I may provide you edited pictures.
