About MeLooking back on the many of the shoots I can now say I felt like I was trying to be what others wanted me to be. I can now see that I was trying to gain validation from my photography.
In the past I knew it on an intellectual level, but it's now finally nice to feel that artistic projection is as an important factor as technical proficiency. An early mentor say to me to be mindful about deleting shots, because one day you will have new eyes and those shots just may be your greatest work.
Whist my photography is now taking a new direction beauty is still an important pillar to me. Authentic beauty is the most amazing thing to capture, it's in all of as, and flashes like lightning. It's in the homeless person as much as it is in the pin-up model.
If you are a model that wants to participate in creating artistic projections then send me a message. If you work with me I'll work with you. Whilst I'm not interested in shooting swimwear; if you do a shoot with me then I'll get the shots you want in return.
I am currently not take payment for shooting or grant commercial releases for my work. I do sometimes pay models but when I do I no longer release any images.
I respect that models like the rest of us need to make money. Starting in 2015 I will be running small workshop style shoots and for those shoots the models will be paid.
Anyway that's where my head and heart is atm, so if you are interested and are the type of person that gets things done then send me a message. I'm not the type of person that waits for the stars to align, if time permits I'll shoot in a hallway, backyard or bathroom. I used to shoot painted models at a bar on my lunch break from my corporate gig. I believe that if you want to shoot or do anything you really can just make it happen. (It just might not be convenient, but what worthwhile ever is?)
