Beauty in all its forms has been my passion since early years. I studied fine arts in Europe, and have close to 40 years' experience in photography.
I do many types of photography and my work often takes me to amazing, exotic, remote locations. But while back in Victoria - my home city - I am happy to offer personal art photography services to interested parties. I also offer professional services to magazines and other media.
If you are a model or to-be-model looking for photos for yourself but can't pay for a photographer - we may do TFP or TFCD exchange without fees (depending on style required).
I do portraits, street action, nude art, lingerie, erotica, glamour and other similar styles. I also do portraits and performance photos of musicians. Having university education as a classical violinist and years of career as a jazz musician - I know by heart musicians' movements and expression when performing - which helps big time with catching that right moment.
On top of these I also do lots of architecture and landscape photography on locations for the most discriminate clients. Clients and locations already in my portfolio include Jade Mountain (St Lucia), Cap Maison (St Lucia), acclaimed architect Lane Pettigrew (LPA Inc, Florida, USA), Jalousie - Sugar Beach (St Lucia), Fort Young Hotel (Dominica), Le Sport Resort and Spa (St Lucia), Portal del Angel (Honduras), La Source, Mt Hartman Bay Estate, Azzurra (Grenada), The Crane, Maddox House, Cove Spring House, and Fustic House in Barbados, Grand Lido Braco, Hedonism II, Couples Sans Succi, Sunset at the Palms in Jamaica, Diamond Gardens, Bay Gardens, Montreal Gardens, Hunte's Gardens in West Indies, DahDah Palace in Syria, Sotheby's International (UK), Sotheby's International (Canada) and many more. I also created a series of 3D holographic animated images for Royal Holographic Art Gallery.
Quite a lot in my intro? Yes. I keep busy and don't like being idle. Photography is more than job to me - it is my passion.
I offer my photography services as well as specialized stock images for upscale magazines and publications, advertising agencies and private clients.
Always looking for interesting assignment photo work on a contract or freelance basis.
1) Please don't be a one look poser and I promise I won't be a one trick photographer. (If you have only one expression and you explored it with other photographers, why repeat the same story?)
2) If you break an appointment without notifying me, don't bother trying to come back later. Life's too short for sloppiness.
3) I DO NOT INVITE THE MODEL'S FRIENDS, RELATIVES, MOTHERS, MANAGERS, BODYGUARDS, ESCORTS, BOYFRIENDS, GIRLFRIENDS, OR ANYBODY ELSE OF A PERSONAL NATURE TO BE PRESENT DURING THE SESSION, AS I FIND IT DISTRACTING TO BOTH ME AND TO THE MODEL, AND NEITHER OF US CAN PRODUCE OUR BEST WORK. If you don't trust me - don't work with me please.
5) If you want to send friend request - thank you. But please first write a line, say what's on your mind, introduce yourself. Fake friends are no friends, like always in life.
Contact me by email for more details or to book, and visit my site, please.
Thank you for your interest!

If you wanted/planned to shoot with me - please note: Because I am getting overly busy, backlogged, and my time is shrinking - I am limiting my Time For Print/Picture sessions to the ones I choose on very selective basis. If you want to shoot with me, please contact me ASAP with your idea or expectations, and we will see what can be done (but no promises, hope you understand). Still - don't be intimidated, you won't know until you ask. You may be just that model i wanted to meet :-)
If not - paid sessions for a modest fee are surely available as always. When asking for one, please mention MM for a better quote. Thank you for your understanding.
