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
* Inked - Dramatic and edgy, high quality portraits like you'd find in Inked Mag

Contact me if you're  interested in collaborating!

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: … /broadway/

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.

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.

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.

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 .............
Joel Grimes .............
Tim Tadder     ..........

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:
