I've been practicing photography for over ten years, and over that period have worked mostly in landscape and nature, with some portraiture and artistic nudes. My style leans heavily toward on location rather than studio shots, and I find that natural light and natural environments offer significant challenges and rewards.
I work primarily with medium format film (to produce both optical prints and high resolution digital scans). I enjoy performing all my own darkroom work. I can also work with an entirely digital process when appropriate, though I usually prefer that option only when high speed or high volume is required.
I am available for hire on assignments within the Wasatch region (or elsewhere by special arrangement), and routinely supply 8"x10" B&W and colour prints, and CDs of high resolution (70 megapixel, 16 bit) digital images. I can provide negatives, larger prints (to 20"x20"), and custom cyanotypes (contact prints only; no larger than 4"x5") or silver-gelatin B&W prints on alternative media (canvas, glass, and others) by special request.
I am open to requests for trades from male and female models, hairstylists and makeup artists, and digital retouchers. I'm willing to pay reasonable fees to the right male or female model who would like to pose for a shoot with me.
Here is a list of ideas I want to use for longer-term projects. Please do contact me if you're interested in any of them!
- I would like to theme an album of photographs on the Tarot de Marseille (the trumps, at least).
- Another idea for a series is to base photography on the life of Diogenes of Sinope. I'm looking for a middle aged male model, with no visible tattoos or piercings, but long hair and a beard. This topic might include implied nudity.
- I'd like to visit a single location with the same model(s) several times over the course of a year, preferably at both solstices and both equinoxes.
- Much of photography is heavily influenced by techniques inherited from painting, and earlier photographs. I am interested in learning from other visual arts: in particular, sculpture (I'd love to try photography inspired by Rodin's La Porte de l'Enfer!) and cinematography (with a heavily narrative style).
