About Me***Updated - Please Read Before Contacting Me***
I am no longer "in the game" as much as I was before. I may do select TF shoots, and paid (low cost) shoots providing me with new styles.

[i][b]I do this, photography, for the art, for the ability I have to create something that didn't previously exist.o That is the reason I invest time and resources in networking, in location scouting, finding suiting models, developing relationships and creating ART. As such, money is almost never exchanged, but it is certainly spent. I realize not everyone agrees with my motivations for this work, and that is okay. But I primarily seek out those who are invested similarly - for the passion of the experience and creating an image that is will live on much longer than you or I will. [/b][/i]
[b]Note: 95% of my photos are kept raw (or unedited). I am madly in love with shooting natural beauty, and natural beauty is far, far from perfect. I am not heavy on post work. But I am willing to do it :)[/b]
What I am: I am foremost a location photographer - I don't have a studio, nor have I ever shot in one, nor do I intend to shoot in one anytime soon. This means I use nature, I use real light and camera mounted light, and I am very mobile, and I use a lot of gas, and I do my research. But I am dabbling in Portrait Pro, and some new techniques!
You may bring an escort to any shoot, but please understand this is not a spectator sport, please do not invite all of your friends to come watch. Also, your escort will be requested to help, be a bit of an assistant if needed - i.e. with a reflector. But should not be interrupting or interjecting. They are there for your peace of mind, not to advise me.
Have a particular shoot in mind, shoot me a message for rates.
