About me
I would describe my work as manipulated figurative photography. All work is created with a Nikon D60 and an iMac with Photoshop CS6. My goal is a contemporary photograph with a reference to painting, history and enviroment. Light, shadow and color all build stories around the male figure.

I spend a lot of time with my art history books now, something I should have done when I was a student … but too late for that. Artists whose work that I slept through in Art History, are now the ones of greatest interest to me. I try to bring to my photography some of the qualities that Carravagio, Jacques-Louis David, Anthony van Dyck and others brought to their paintings.

My love of history influences my work in many ways. History was one subjects I liked from grammar school on. It is important that my art have a sense of history and mystery. This can come the photograph’s setting, or from the addition of objects, type, maps and and endless array of items.

I hope that a person looking at my work sees the beauty of the male figure, not just a nude. The male nude is too often seen as taboo in Indiana and I would say most of the USA. I have never really understood why the female nude is acceptable everywhere in modern society while the male nude still threatens. I hope my work allows people to see that there is no reason for that.

“Lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at you.” -

David Brinkley

I’m always looking for male models who are confident and comfortable with their bodies and able to convey a sense of male sensuality. You don’t have to have  the body of an Adonis and you do not have to shoot nudes. I’m not looking for boyfriends or to shoot porn. My goal as a photographer is to depict my vision of male beauty through my lens. I shoot a fair amount of TF so, if you feel that you have what it takes, message me! I’m easy to work with and willing to listen to your idea’s and projects.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. -Dr. Seuss
