**I am in the Bay Area in Northern California. currently: Fremont. **
I am an artist (always), model (since 2002), and photographer (since 2009). I'd played with photography in the past but in 2009 I started working with models and that's when I got addicted to photography and really picked it up as my art medium.
I love working with models (male and female) and enjoy building up my portfolio, and exploring photography. I offer TF only as I do not have a budget to pay models. So if you like my work and wanna work with me ... lets shoot. I work with models of all experience levels.
While I am not married to any style of photography (fashion, glamour, artistic, nude, implied nude, etc), my STRENGTH is black&white and infrared. I tend to be more "artsy" then glamour or fashiony. I work with studio lighting/strobes or natural lighting.
My turn around time to get finished photos to models varies (1-6 weeks). If it becomes apparent that it will take longer I am more than happy to send a cd of initial shots then send a cd of edited shots when completed.
How I work:
I can "dropbox" hi-res and lo-res final files or provide a CD/flash drive and ship it to you. I give you files of everything that I work on.
I require a signed model release unless you are hiring my services.
I NEVER require nudity. But I do like to take nudes or semi nudes.
If you don't want nudes of you out there in the world then don't pose nude with me. I don't need or want a collection of photographs that I can't display.
If you want to be credited or "tagged" (you or your stage name) in images, you need to tell me, better yet write it on the model release.
What I DO with the photos: Use them in my portfolios (print AND online), as well as potential gallery shows, books, etc.
I have several shoot ideas I would love to see materialize: Vintage nightgowns, slips, musical instruments, corsets, rope (not actually being tied up but looking like it, and I mean blk&wt shots with elegant rope). rain / wet / dirty / sandy / gritty. I like images that tell a story and will be pursuing that.
I strongly encourage viewing my website if you are interested in working with me and viewing the people gallery as it will give you a idea of what I do. :) I'm a bit slow updating MM because I'm usually busy editing photos instead, and I usually only post infrared portraits here on MM.

What is infrared? I won't bore you with the technical details. The effect is what's important. It has kind of a marble "statue" appearance for skin. Almost all skin turns light or white. Hair turns light (almost white) on many people. Clothing turns random. Some things turn white, somethings turn blueish. Black suede tends to turn blue and black leather tends to stay black. So your awesome new dress may look like a totally different dress with my photos. Patterns on fabric tend to disappear.
Makeup in infrared is also strange. Eyeliner WILL show up, creamy eye shadows tend to show up, powders don't. Lipstick can show up but doesn't always.
Tattoos in infrared : They are AWESOME!! The dark lines become darker and because it lightens the skin it makes them "Pop" The color within the tattoo varies.
Important note: Please don't wear skinny jeans when posing for me, unless you only want waist up shots. I know they are all fashionable and all the trend right now, but I do NOT find them visually appealing and I won't photograph them. I just won't do it!!
