Current - 2012
-----------------------------

I'm looking for talented models (and wardrobe consultants & MUAs) in the Boston metrowest or Worcester area that would be interested in developing a working partnership (TF*) while exploring photographic styles and genres on a TF* basis.  Would you like to join me for collaboration and creativity?  Ideally I'm looking for someone that would be available often, has some experience modeling (knows a bit about fashion posing), and is very focused as a creative person.

Working on brand new portfolios for specific genres: 
* Editorial Fashion - Think Kencredible meets Joel Grimes
* Seniors - I'm aiming to build a portfolio similar to http://enchantedblog.com/
* Inked - Dramatic and edgy, high quality portraits like you'd find in Inked Mag

Contact me if you're  interested in collaborating!

HEADSHOTS
=========================
I just finished an intensive workshop with New York's best headshot photographer Peter Hurley.  I would like to develop a portfolio of headshots in that style, and am looking for local actors and models that would like to help me build it on a TF* basis.  Check out Peter Hurley's work, and that's exactly what I'd like to work on:

I have a well equipped 700 s.f. studio west of Boston near 495 in Bolton, with professional studio strobes, soft boxes, all related light modifiers, as well as chain-driven seamless backgrounds, textured backgrounds, and assortment of antique furniture as props.

About
--------------
I'm getting started as a lifestyle and editorial photographer near Boston, specializing in creating dramatic and artistic portraits, but my services extend to a wide range of people photography.

In 2011, I was elected as President of CIPNE (Commercial & Industrial Photographers of New England).  We bring educational programs to New England photographers.  http://cipne.org/

In 2009 I completed the program in Professional Digital Photography at The Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University.  In 2010 I won First Prize for Portraiture at the Annual Meeting of CIPNE (Commercial and Industrial Photographers of New England).  In 2009 I won the CIPNE First Prize for Digital Illustration.

Models
----------------
Currently I'm considering some test photo sessions on a TF/* basis for portfolio building.

I'm looking for female or male models that have an eclectic sense of style to develop some editorial/fashion concepts I have mind.  I'll leave it up to you to interpret eclectic.   Ideally you have already learned posing styles, and it would be great if you had experience in acting/theater because I'm looking for people that can show a range of emotions during a photo session.

Drop me a line if you have creative ideas, a fun attitude, & a quirky, glamorous, or athletic look.   
                   
Portrait Inspiration
---------------
I enjoy the work of the following photographers and I wish to emulate their style.  They are artists and sculptors of light.  Moreover, they publish articles that help me understand how they achieve their distinct styles.

Miller Mobley ............. http://www.millermobley.com/blog/
Joel Grimes ............. http://www.joelgrimes.com/
Tim Tadder     .......... http://www.timtadder.com/

I'm also developing a new portfolio to market to High School Seniors.  My goal is to create images that evoke a sense of vintage fashion and urban chic.  See the following sources of inspiration that drive my sense of style:

Enchanted Seniors ...... http://www.enchantedseniors.com/
