For more than twenty years I have worked with male models, helping them to start or update their portfolios.
I am an independent photographer and artist. I approach photography as another way of expressing my creativity and art. I tend to seek a balance between artistic expression and commercialism. I have often found that if you do what you love and believe in, the money will follow. My work often sells as art, and I work on self-publishing projects.
I like working with a variety of models. I have an open definition of what is considered attractive, interesting, and sexy. If you look at my work, you will see that I've worked with fitness models to "guys next door" to models whose appeal is artistic over commercial, etc... Beauty is subjective. Often what others consider a flaw, I will find as a virtue. I'm inspired by the old beefcake/erotic photos from the 1950's thru the 1970's. While models obviously pose for photos, I like to keep things natural. I prefer outdoor settings. I don't like to "over-pose" or "over-edit" my photos either. I like to use the lighting that I find in nature. While I will pose a model, I also want to catpure his natural movements. Fair warning: I don't use expensive equipment. The image I capture using the tools at hand is more important than how much I spend on equipment.
My work ranges from just shirtless to full nudes, depending on what the model is comfortable with. Showing "sexy" is more important to me than showing "nudity". I have always felt that the photo should be about the person and not how much skin is showing.
I offer models Trade For Photos shoots to begin with, which is good for starting or building your portfolio. If you are interested in this, please contact me. I can often help with the expenses of driving to Jacksonville. I work digitally and email photos within 48 hours of the completion of the shoot. I like to work with models more than once, and offer paid shoots once they have completed a TFP shoot with me.
