The Portrait Chronicles

Photographer Male Chattanooga, Tennessee, US
Mayhem # 1401790

About Me

I am a chronicler of likenesses. I am a portrait artist who uses photography as the medium that best suits my needs.

I am not a commercial photographer. I don’t pay or accept payment for shooting a subject, nor do I offer images for sale. The only purpose of my work is for exhibition.

My Model Mayhem portfolio is expressly meant to promote my work to potential subjects. I am always dissatisfied with the images and I constantly re-edit them. My portfolio is always a work in progress.

My current website defines my vision and the fundamental vocabulary that supports it. A link to it is provided above. It is in perpetual revision.

I am currently creating a web book with the working title, “The 52 Studies Of Jesse – Notes On My Year Of Shooting A Reluctant Muse” which relates my experiences while discovering and defining the principles and practices of my work.

I appreciate any time you might have spent viewing my work. Comments or questions are best addressed to

I recently relocated to Chattanooga from New York City where I will continue to pursue my vision through collaborating with like-minded subjects who are compatible with the scope of my work.

“If the subject and I are both famous a hundred years from now because of the portrait we created, then I will consider myself to be a great success.”
