About MeAbout Me:
PLEASE NOTE: I don't update here as frequently as I do my Instagram and Tumblr accounts which are ...
I'm also a Zivity Photographer, so if you'd like to shoot model sets for Zivity, let me know!!
I used to have a lot written here, hardly anyone read it... soo...
~I technically live in Trumbull, but New Haven is more recognized so I used that as my "Home Town".
~I've been shooting film for 20 years.
~I shoot digital and film, 35mm and Medium format and Large Format! and process everything myself. I love film and use it whenever possible.
~I often incorporate the nude form in my work, and ONLY accept TF for those projects.
~I'm fun and easygoing, and I'm sure we'll have a great time working together.
~Sometimes you'll get to take home some of the wardrobe we shoot with! :)
~I'm very open to trade as mentioned above, and paid work (for YOUR portfolio) is on a sliding scale, I take into account your budget and what you'd like to accomplish, and I'll give you great imagery.
~I only pay for the exceptional model, one who's proven to be be both accomplished and reliable.
~I prefer actual locations to studio work so temperature and weather are often factors in the equation.
What are you waiting for, message me already! :)
~ABANDONED BOOKS PROJECT It's actually a huge project, and I feel it’s one of the most important ones of my career. The concept is that this is a world similar to 1984/Fahrenheit 451 where people have books hidden because they are illegal, the commentary is about how kindles/iPads/nooks are taking over and paper books are disappearing, it bothers me that in some digital versions of the literature they are changing the writers words to be more PC, example mark twain works, they are taking the N word out and replacing it with something like "African American". Now I don't approve of the use of the word in a derogatory sense but this is part of history and the use of the word shows context for the time period the story is set in, the author is dead and his words should not be corrupted. I am trying to express that there is a purity in the original works and so in this world these people who discover and read the purity of the writings and become pure and innocent again, that is represented in their disrobement. Sort of the opposite of the Adam and Eve story, but instead they lose their sin and no longer need their clothing because the clothing represents sin and their naked bodies represent truth and innocence. It also comments that nudity is not sinful and is in fact purity. The concept mostly involves books and older "technology" vs the new technology we know of today and contrasts that commenting on how it corrups our society. It's a very important project and I hope you will be a part of it.
~MACRO PARTS BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT On a limited basis I'm working on a collection of very intimate portraits of intimate parts. I want to be clear this is about the art and lighting of the human form, it's about positive body image, and is for both men and women, it will be done in B&W using both digital and film as a medium. I'mages of lips, nips, hands, labia(or penis), collarbones, butts, thighs, eyes, hair, all super close up body portraiture. It's a celebration of the human body and discovering the beauty in all types and forms. PLEASE NOTE: due to the nature of some of the imagery, I cannot post examples on MM unfortunately, so please ask for examples and I'll send a link :)
~EQUALITY PROJECT, Ok so there is a long story behind it, but basically a friend challenged me to do something about the inequality of women's rights when it comes to the limits women have on clothing options during the summer (brought upon by this 100+ heat wave we've had...) why can't women go topless? men can! she says ... it's so sexist ... grrr she says (I'm paraphrasing) so I will be shooting comparison images between men and women, I need all types of men and women who will pose topless for me holding signs with statements on them, I particularly am currently looking for women with completely flat chests, and overweight men with heavy breast tissue. Others of different proportion who would like to be involved in this project are of course welcome as well. Please contact me for more info and to schedule a shoot.
Not yet started project...
~NATURAL PROJECT (AKA Body Hair Aware Project) which I haven't quite figured out how I'm doing it yet, but I am pro women's body hair, and was thinking of doing a period piece by capturing women in old world scenes who are pre-1950's in appearance. This has proved difficult as there aren't many women with the natural look these days, and by natural I mean "all natural" as in no shaving of the underarms or crotch areas, I know this isn't for everyone, but I find the natural woman to be both beautiful and timeless and I truly believe the outcome of this imagery will be magnificent, if you know anyone who would be interested, please send them my way.
