TO THE PERSON OR PERSONS WHO STOLE ONE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THIS SITE AND POSTED IT ON A BLOG WHICH WAS THEN RE-POSTED ON OTHER BLOGS AND HAD THE AUDACITY TO REMOVE MY SITE NAME AND COPYRIGHT SYMBOL: I CONSIDER THAT THEFT!!!!!!!!!
All models are over 18 years of age and were photographed under contract.
I am an amateur photographer trying to learn my craft, particularly studio work. I do both studio and outdoor (natural light) photography.
I particularly like working with new and/or inexperienced models (male and female).
I strongly believe in treating models with dignity and respect. I strongly believe in providing a model with a safe working environment. I do my very best to be professional at all times. I do request to meet with a model (lunch or dinner, my treat) before I schedule a photo shoot. That way, you get to know me, and I get to know you. If we both feel comfortable, we can schedule a photo shoot.
My philosophy of being a photographer is based on Leo Tolstoy's definition of art.
1. Art is a form of communication, and it is a means of expression of any experience or any aspect of the human condition. It can be communication of a thought or feeling.
2. Art is an expression of a feeling or experience in such a way that the audience to whom the art is directed can share that feeling or experience. It is successful only if the audience feels the emotion.
3. Good art is intelligible and comprehensible where bad art is neither.
4. The most important quality of any work of art is sincerity.
Finally, from the words of St. Jerome
The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.
