I am a photographer based in Tampa Bay, Florida. I specialize in fine art portraits, and performing arts using both digital and film formats. I have been exploring the art of photography for about ten years. I became a serious hobbyist in 2009 and started doing commissioned work in 2011.
My professional portfolio is currently focusing on fine art portraits and performance art photography and I am beginning to incorporate more medium format film into my work. My influences are photographers like George Hurrell, and Edward Steichen who I stumbled upon through her love of Hollywood's golden age.
My portrait work is evolving; and I am currently working on some personal and more conceptual, thought provoking images with black and white film. I am inspired by poetry, experience, travels and vintage fashion and films. My goal is to create images that are both simple and profound.
I've never used a model from Model Mayhem before, but I'm looking for a little more variety in my portfolio. I'm really wanting a vintage look, preferably 1910s - 1930s. If that's something you love, and you're into vintage fashion, yay! Contact me!
