I was seduced by the medium of photography while I was in art school (way before digital was around). The power of transforming the ordinary to the extraordinary with light is a thrill I still experience today. Although these days I mostly shoot digital, I have no set rules for how I approach a project. Some projects require a team with a make-up artist and a stylist while other projects are more successful in the more intimate environment of a closed set.
I have diverse interests when it comes to what I enjoy shooting (beauty, fashion, fine art, nudes, fantasy, fetish) but I would limit it to what is appropriate to this site (I'll shoot some erotic but not porn) . I would prefer that only serious models or artists contact me .
I try to keep photo sessions for models' books affordable but the price depends on if styling is required (I hire people for this). We can usually find good make-up artists or stylists in Montreal willing to work at "test" rates.
