About Me

"Those Victorians who dominated public morality came to regard their bodies as a threat to respectability, and their attitude toward them was a combination of denial, distortion, and fear." ~ William A. Ewing, The Body.

Things need to change.

I have been on stage my entire life, acting, singing, dancing, and playing various instruments. I discovered that the less I tried, the more I won awards.

I was trained on the piano from age five, but am not a pianist.

While I've had a camera strapped to my back for 20 years, and have been shooting girls running around naked since I was in high school, I still feel as though I am too young to be taken seriously in the fine art world.

I don't have a degree because each of the five institutions I've attended could best be described as really expensive common sense.

I am a naturist.

I do not want to sleep with you, and if you are simple enough to think I do, I do not want to work with you.

I have never washed my Jeep.

I would never ask a professional (nude) model to shoot for free. I am simply not capable of seeing that as an option.

I am currently in creative limbo.

I have never asked a girl to take off her clothes.

I make more money with my face than I do with my camera. I am not sure why.

I fail to understand why so many potentially beautiful souls settle for being mundane and boring, when they could be a work of art.

I am a sovereign photographer, who believes in a healthy grasp on ethical creativity.

The product will always be more important to me than the paycheck.

Being naked will NEVER be as important as having the strength and confidence to not be afraid of it. That's what makes good photographs: Attitude, not attribute.

I see the work, interaction with models, and the product as a living organism, constantly evolving.

I refuse to take a photograph that I would be ashamed to show my children.

I'm the most unknown famous man you'll ever meet.
