About Me

Please read entire bio before contacting me,you will be quized
UPDATE!As of the beginning of 2015 I am primarily shooting for internatiomal and national glamour magazines through a management company I am affiliated with.This is a major company that manages many of the models you see at events and in magazines.Therefore,this will be occupying 90% of my tme when home or on the road.I will be running tests for this company so extremely limited testing/TFP

I will be one of the photographers attending this even Oct 4-11.If you would like to join me message me and I will give you the info on how to be a part of an event that will benefit your career,model or photographers

I am also a lover of most things heavy metal,being a musician/guitarist/songwriter with numerous CDs and tours to my credit,its only natural that I also have fun with photgraphy at shows
My friends from Sarasota,Jon Drenning and Ben Jackson,from the band Crimson Glory

Some other random things about me.
What you don't see me shooting;
I don't shoot nudes.If I want to see nekid girls,there are places to go for that.
I don't shoot cliche/trashy glam
Shots of models on toilets are tacky,don't know who or when this became sexy.
I'm STILL  searching for a muse.
I am a GWC,I am always eating chicken(Guy With Chicken)
I have nicer hair than most models(so I've been told)
I am an active musician in the scene,with many CD releases to my credit.
I love underground metal,prog rock/metal,trance,and electronic music.
Riverside is the best band in the world at this time

little note here on some other items that get brought up

ESCORTS
I am escort friendly as long as he/she does not interfere,and wouldn't mind helping in certain spots.I usually have no helpers with me,especially when I am on the road,and an extra hand,especially when shooting in the water holding a flash is a great thing.Again,as long as there is no drama,no problem

I am a long haul OTR trucker as photography and/or music does not pay the bills,therefore my time is extremely limited when in my hometown of Tampa.I travel often to the Mid Atlantic/Deleware,Chicago,So Cal,and occasionally Phoenix and Dallas,and starting Feb of 2012 I will and can possibly
be available in the Toronto area as I might have a steady run from Chicago to Toronto.Due to my extremely limited home time and busy schedule,as of 2012 extremely limited TFP,which means only if I contact you or your look blows me away

FLAKES
This was never a problem until a up to then close friend of mine no showed on one of my trips.I now have a zero tolerence policy.I might not be a "name"in this scene,but I am very good friends with a lot of people who are,whether it be models,photogs,MUA's,ect.I am very tight with people in Fla.What I'm saying is that flaking on me would be the same as flaking on a lot of people,just saying...so bottom line,I know emergencies happen,a phone call or text before the shoot would be appreciated.If you think you might have issues in a month or so,let me know ahead of time so I can find a replacement.A no call,no show..no bueno

ONE MORE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THING
I'm quite silly during shoots so be prepared to laugh
