About Me


My passion that is photography began over 20 years ago. I am an African American photo enthusiast who has grown to love natural outdoor lighting. There is some beautiful background scenery in what is now my native Northwest Florida.

What I really like to do is take photos of female models over age 21 who are starting out in modeling. And I recognize Model Mayhem as the premier vehicle for networking with models as we build our respective portfolios. I am always growing as a photographer. Maybe we can both grow together, having fun along the way. No experience is needed.

In my opinion, it should not cost any money to get started in modeling. Personally, I don't charge and I don't pay. I also don't use studios, studio lighting or retouching software. But I may crop or change color tones from time to time, just to add a little variety. I use natural sunlight almost exclusively. I typically put photos on a CD for the models who work with me and who just want simple natural shots. Hopefully your computer has a CD drive. I try to create a few good looks.

Later, however, I strongly suggest that models work with a professional photographer, unlike myself, who controls lighting and other aspects of photographic images when the models know for sure that they want to invest time and money into a modeling career. I can also work with experienced models who do not need professional quality images as long as you are very nice and friendly, not pushy or demanding, and just enjoy being in front of the camera. I am also very friendly.

My goal is for both of us to enjoy the experience and build our portfolios. If you don't want modeling to be a lot of work, I don't want photography to be a lot of work either. It should be fun, like taking a selfie. That kind of sums up my approach. If you need good quality images, again, work with a professional photographer. I want my photography to always be fun.

Because models are kind enough to work with me I try to give you what you like. If you need more full body photos that is what I try to photograph for you. If you want to highlight an area (your curves, face, clothing, pose, etc.) then that is what I try to highlight. If you think you've lost your model mojo, I try to get that back for you too. It is easy since I travel lightly and have my camera with me almost every weekend and holiday. All you have to do is strike a pose. Then the fun begins.

I can drive to Tallahassee, and I have been to Pensacola once. So locations in and between those two are possibilities. I may also consider Dothan, Alabama. However, if you are in the PC or PCB area you can basically just roll out of bed, throw some clothes on, step outside and I can photograph you. I do reserve the right to be very selective. I am repulsed by some nontraditional piercings. Right now though, my time is very seriously limited due to some personal projects. But I can sometimes squeeze in a few minutes here and there to have fun with a beautiful model just taking photographs.

Best wishes to you, and thank you so much for taking the time to read.
