About Me

I have a very strong belief when it comes to portrait style photography. I do not believe in facial manipulation, or digital enhancement beyond the basic color, contrast, and cropping adjustments, although occasionally I do minimal cosmetic touch outs. I do not airbrush the skin overall. It is my belief that these manipulations create an unrealistic self expectation of society as a whole for both men and women, and I am fighting a one-man campaign to change that one shoot at a time. I am especially open to working with new models, in an attempt to make sure that they are not corrupted by the Photoshop reality that they have undoubtedly been studying.

My passion is shooting real film using vintage and historic cameras. I am very passionate about art and the analog photography medium. I'll refrain from posting equipment details here for the most part, but if you have questions i'm always willing to talk shop.

I'm willing to shoot TFP, even at my own expense, especially when both parties will benefit mutually.

Model releases will be taken for every shoot.
Every photo WILL BE CREDITED whenever possible!
