MY SCHEDULE FOR THE SUMMER IS EXTREMELY HECTIC! I NEED TO GET BACK BEHIND THE CAMERA!
A wise model (Veda) once said: "The Magic Lies Just Outside Your Comfort Zone Album". She is definitely right!
WANTED: Fresh, new modeling talent! I'm looking for a "girl - next - door" type. Be my muse for the day! Trade time for CD! Build your portfolio!
I AM A PHOTOGRAPHIC MINIMALIST! There - I've said it!
Photography is magic to me. It is my passion!
I have been involved in photography for nearly 40 years now. A good part of that time, I did work professionally, shooting, portraits, industrial, photo journalism, videography, and rock concerts.
My reason for adding my portfolio to Model Mayhem is a to help me to regain my photographic “scent”, and hone my skills. I want to experiment. I also want to revert back to my "roots" - minimal production - available lighting - 35mm - black and white!
And of course with with some digital mixed in!
The Model Mayhem models that I have listed are those who have indeed, been a pleasure to work with.
Like most of the photographers on this site, I have had a few bad experiences over the last couple of years - models who didn't show up for a shoot or who have cancelled at the last moment. NO FLAKE MODELS! MY TIME IS VALUABLE!

I do shoot quite a few nudes. Why - nude photography better illustrates the person that I am shooting, offering a real insight to their persona. I have also found that models who pose nude tend to be more creative and more professional than those that do not. They tend to leave their inhibitions out the door and are able to express themselves fully.
However, I leave this as the models choice, but it is NOT a requirement. I do expect a degree of sensuality. A model can be extremely sensual with clothes on! Sensuality is definitely a requirement!
My schedule is always tight! I can only shoot weekdays. Family commitments limit my weekends, unless it is for a gig that pays.
I am a gentlemen, please contact the MM models that I have worked with for references. Do not be offended if I check yours as well.
If we make a date to shoot, please stick to that date. Please be dependable and be on time! If I have to rent a studio, it does cost me precious time and money!
I usually shoot with minimal production. I prefer it that way unless dictated by a client.
My rates are reasonable but I will shoot TFP on occasion. I'm always looking for fresh talent. Drop me a message.
Let’s make some magic!
