About MeI hope this was an unobtrusive way to get your attention..
, , , , I AM interested in collaborative and creative art;
I didn't sign up for MM to chase after anyone;....
I have worked with many wonderful models
since I started photographing nudes in 1975.
After a bit I connected with the web and signed up to MM in 2011.
And over these last five years; besides great photos;
I've also made quite a few model friends here on MM.
it was the fact that a couple of MM conected women saw my work,..
They ..modeled, ..and thought other models might like to know what I do.
They twisted my arm to sign up . .and.. (well) ..here I am.
So working with the MM web site....I friended you so you can see my work,
and if you like what you see...please contact me;............
If you don't see the "Art" in the artist,,, well.. ( I'm glad I didn't waste a spot in your "inbox"... (- :
With strong conviction; I started as a Fine Art TFP Only - Photographer, in 1975;
I was first, asked to be a solo exhibiting artist in 1981.
Since then I've accomplished over 62 Fine Art Exhibitions...In galleries, colleges and museums.
(my 63rd was April 2016 at a new gallery across from PCC Sylvania)
...I leave it up to you to see the intention and beauty in my art, and hope that you try to contact me for a TFP shoot:
It can be either for your own self expression /image, or for your portfolio.
Almost each and everyone has told me how tiring it is to be hit on by E-mail so many times, that it becomes hard to sort the Artists from the GWC.
My current Projects are exampled in my photos.
Here, on MM; and on my Tumblr page.
I hope you take a long look at each and every moment I photographed,
and understand how that person felt comfortable in my presence, to trust my eye/art
to share that unique part of themselves, ..... with me.
There is nothing more special than being 'alive'. !!
and I have been very Honored in my Art/Work/Life
... I've asked; if a MM model wishes to be "known"
... to express how they felt on my Front page ..as a 'Tag"
...These Are My References.
...and each and every model who posted a tag can still delete it ....
(any day...even if they Ever had a change of heart)
May, 2016 UPDATE: My partner of 20 yrs. has run into a major health issue
...she is currently in remission;
but my ability to schedule photo shoots MUST now work around her scheduling needs. ... ( Thank you for your understanding )
Please.. contact me to start to the process to coordinate a shoot, ..she loves my work, and is happy when the synchronicity of a shoot occurs.

Sorry for the long list of names you don't have a connection to.
But I DO,
each and every one,,
most are women who are trying to find their inner voice...
...some were/ are mothers ,,,some for the first ..and some the second/time
...some are/were grand mothers,
... some are gay, some are straight,
...some are straight/or/LGBT couples,
Every one looked to me to be clear and truthful; trusting my insight..
that their moment of life might be represented through the same 'unique view'
as they saw represented in my photographic work.
It is very important to me that a model has a voice and choice in the imagery they think will represent them.
So here are the choices some of my MM models; wanted to have made public here on MM.
These are Their choices, here in my 'LISTs' and 'TAGs' below...
