I have been a model and portrait photographer for the past 40+ years. On two occasions, I trained with a master photographer in Florida to study their lighting techniques and work skills. I built a studio into my home to hold down the overhead. Among my many set-ups, I have various scenes such as chinese, western, spanish, greek maiden, etc. and the clothes to match, all to show the model's versatility and a chance to bring out her character. I fully enjoy coaching models to bring out their personality and best features in the photos. Two of my models have gone on to careers in TV and another is a budding actress. A few years back I switched from wet darkroom to digital and am constantly learning new inovations and techniques. I need models to continue my work as each model is a new challenge and a new interpretation of the work at hand. I do not seek to photograph nude models but young ladies who have a sincere desire to work hard and together we will strive to produce beautiful fashion or acting photos. I do not require any experience on their part.
