This all happened by accident. Until a few years ago photography was very much a hobby then I was asked by a bud at the gym to shoot some pics for him. That led to many other requests which eventually led me to TVs Gladiators and then 4 issues of Muscle and Fitness magazine and a Middle Eastern Physique magazine "Physique". All of my professional work has been bodybuilders and portraits but I also enjoy all other forms of photography and with this won the "Moore at Kew" competition. I now look forward to more portrait work and to spread my wings into other fields of photography.
YES, I am still doing TFCD's (Time For CD's, means the model gives his/her time and the photographer gives them pictures on CD), but only for outstanding physiques or for those who are just starting to build their portfolio.
I am not interested in circuit models.
I DO NOT PAY MODELS SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK.
I think your work is beautiful as well as your models and you are an inspiration to me . . . .

Your work is really wonderful. The photos are amazing and really intense. I love them. You control the light like no other in outdoors shooting like if it was in a studio.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for your amazing work!
and let everyone know what a lovely person and great photographer you are.
I had an awesome day shooting with you!
you are hard working, passionate and such a wonderful person to have met.
As you know I have been using MM to build up my new portfolio and yours was the last one I had booked,
You have made my life so HARD as you have given me so many AWESOME shots to choose from
How am I going to narrow them down?

It is really great to see males in Photo Shoots, as mostly it is the ladies who dominate the sights. But - making GOOD photos of males is a different dynamic of photography. YOU - are a person who HAS that special EYE and the KNOW HOW to exact their pose, the lighting, the 'Look', and the focus, to capture that 'male.ness' of your subjects. Your entire port is manly, sexy, professional. Congratulations to both YOU and your models!
It is a pleasure to view work of a PROFESSIONAL. Though your subjects, (models), are very sexy and certainly 'built', I am inspired by your photos of them, because you bring them beyond their raw sexuality, to a refined total man. Your photography and knowledge of it, blends sensuality with viewability. You have become quite accomplished in your field of photograghy. We salute you and your talents.

Your work is absolutely awesome. Beautifully lit, wonderfully posed. Even the most simple poses you have in your portfolio are great. You have a great ability to capture not only the physical aspect of a model, but you also capture a bit of their soul. There is a lot of emotion in your photographs which is then conveyed to the observer. You don't take photographs--you create art!!!

Thanks Doug, for our second shoot. Our first one was already great, but this one was even better!! We managed to create some wonderful shots together and I'm so pleased with the results! Looking forward to our next shoot! :)
I've rarely seen such an amazing array of masculine perfection on display in a single portfolio -- each one presented with exquisite emotional sensitivity and exacting technical proficiency. This has been my first exposure to your work, but it certainly won't be my last. Bravo!
