The female form is beautiful. I enjoy working with models that inspire me. I am also a nature photographer and have published 2 nature and wildlife books thus far. I love to shoot outside in nature, so photographing people in nature can be magical. I also own a photography studio and enjoy creating stunning images their too.

Every shoot is a team effort, so I'm always open to ideas and requests from the models I shoot with. I have considerable experience with new models and I would love to work with you to develop your portfolio. I am patient and I have a laid back style. Our shoot will be fun, productive and without pressure.
Right now as I am traveling, I'm primarily doing outdoor shoots. I do use strobes and reflectors while shooting outside (or if weather is not favorable) indoors, or if you know a place you like and want to use, we can use it as a photography location.

Proof of Age. I will take a picture of your official picture ID at our first shoot for my records, before we begin shooting. I do not shoot with models under 18 years of age.

A signed release. I will ask you to sign my release at the beginning of each shoot. I will not shoot without a signed release. NO exceptions.

A Pre-Shoot Meeting, if we have never worked together before and your schedule allows. You get a sample copy of my release to keep, so you can become familiar with it. We get to meet and get acquainted. You get to see I'm not a creep, I get to see if you look like the pictures in your portfolio. These meetings are held in a safe, public place like Starbucks or Panera or some casual restaurant convenient to you.

ESCORTS: Escorts are no problem as long as the person is unobtrusive. If your escort is willing to help me with things like holding a reflector, I'll take advantage of the offer, but it is not a requirement. In my experience, husbands, boyfriends and parents do not make good escorts. Even the most experienced models very often get self conscious with them watching, but if they are your preference, I don't object.

BODY ART: I enjoy exploring it if you have tattoos or piercings.

NO nudes? NO implieds? NO problem! You set the limits, I respect them. I will not try to talk you into something you're not comfortable doing.

I am always on time and ask the same consideration from you.

This has been really long but if you read this far, we should definitely explore working together and set up a shoot.

Every one of my images tells a story. I approach photo shoots with a creative journalistic style. I like to pull from aspects of your personality along with characteristics of the location, Wardrobe, and props to capture interesting images that tell your story or create your fantasy.

Feel free to drop by my Facebook Fan Page too see more of my photography and give me a LIKE.

Also, you are welcome to visit my web site

I am available for photo shoots world wide. I will be in the Fort Myers Florida area yearly on and off, from October through May.

My rates are reasonable. Under certain circumstances I will trade photography for modeling. And feel free to contact me regardless.
