Hello and thanks for visiting my page.
Photography has been a part of my life since the age of 14, whether as a hobby as a kid, a full time professional shooter, or as an educator and technical resource for various companies I have and do work for.
Over the years my tastes and influences have varied, for the past few years I have developed a love for art nude and "people" photography. I utilise my lighting and technical skills to (hopefully) create images that provoke some thought or simply give the viewer a mechanism whereby they can associate and interact with an image on their own terms. Images just dont portray a story determined by the photographer, or the model, I like to think images provide material to stimulate the individual thoughts of the viewer and relate to something on their own level.
I do like to combine human and nature, and its probably my favorite form of photography both for the result and the actual shooting experience. One thing I absolutely enjoy is sharing this shooting experience with others, whether it be a skilled photographer or someone starting out, so dont be afraid to contact me about joint shoots.
For the models out there I am 100% professional, any of the girls I have worked with I am sure will attest to that. I do like to develop a working relationship with my subjects - I am generally not a one shoot photographer who then moves onto another model. Getting to know your model on a professional level makes for better results I believe.
I shoot everything from fashion and beauty, through to edgy and challenging. Never exploitative or seedy.
Thanks for stopping by.
Oh yes, my favorite artists include Helmut Newton, Jeanloup Sieff, and John Swannell
