Over 15 years years ago, I left behind a life of fashion bleh, doing print work for Hellmark, The Jane Store Co. and the local daily rags in Kansas City, as well as some contract work for Elite. I was lucky enough to get my start through John Casablanca's/Elite and happily credit them with the push into production. Early influences in the area included R. Morrissey, Guillaume and Jean-Louis David.
Aspire after Annie Leibovitz, Ansel Adams, Herb Ritts - Originally inspired to shoot by Steve McCurry's 1984 "Afghan Girl", seen first at age 10 on the cover of Nat Geo in 1985.
Focused currently on Vintage, Iconic Pin-Up Imagery a'la Bettie Page in her prime, or the Ozark Queen herself Sally Rand, with a studio in West Eugene. All images are organic - NEVER DIGITALLY ALTERED - NEVER SOLD TO ADULT SITES. Please understand and respect this distinction in my work.
Completely new site upcoming, along with a start-up production company - Help me to break the strangle-hold that Ch@mbers Co. and Fink&Assoc. have on this small-market mentality town!
