About Me

Very directly: One look at my portfolio and you'll instantly know the kind of art I shoot. If that's your style, then you'll LOVE shooting with me! If not, then it's okay to change the channel. :)

I'm constantly shooting but not very active on this site. I DO, however, respond promptly to notifications I get from profile tags, image comments, listings, friend requests, and definitely private messages.

Mine is the kind erotic art you might be saying "No" to now, but wish you would have said "Yes" to years from now. Think about that. You have a great body now, you have to extract as much energy, excitement, and pleasure from it as you can! Let's explore its limits, and make the most of it while it's at its best!

Willing to shoot you anonymously if you have certain professional or other restrictions.

Unfortunately, I believe that much of my best work as been removed by the moderators. I'm not complaining. It's their site and they are free to do as they please. I just want you, the model, to know that the current few photos in my portfolio are absolutely NOT representative of the best erotic art I've produced. I'm kind of surprised by the images that were removed versus the ones that are left. You can read more about that, further below.

About Me:

Lots of experience, lots of emotion, lots of passion in what I do.
I'll admit, that can be good and bad.

I believe still imagery to be a more powerful medium than video in what it doesn't say and, therefore, what it leaves to the viewer's imagination. When you're allowed to fill-in your own story line, you connect with the imagery in a more intimate way, and part of it becomes a part of you.

You may or may not see the beauty in my work. I hope you do. I shoot lots of open-leg nudes and I won't apologize for liking them. I love 'em, actually. That doesn't mean you're required to shoot them, but I'll definitely be more inclined to shoot with you if you do. Pretty easy, really. I think vaginas are endlessly fascinating and as individually unique as a delicate snowflake.

I don't submit photos to Hustler, Twistys, Brazzers, or any glam-porn outlets like that. I also don't think passionate, open-leg shots automatically qualify an image as "porn." In fact, my definition of "porn" requires bodily insertion or penetration, and exchange of genital fluids. Erotic art, however, is on another - better, higher - plane, and not always easy to achieve in the limited time frame of a single shoot.

I might post more of my previous work, but several of my images have been deleted by the moderators for Too Much Emphasis on Genitalia. I disagree with their assessment, but I guess we all have different limits on what we consider to be acceptable. I get it, no problem. The deleted images were NOT tasteless or disrespectful. I wouldn't do that to you, and the models I shoot with wouldn't do that to themselves. They really are quality women and talented models who really do love what they do. The photos were, most admittedly, highly passionate and highly erotic. Frankly, I consider the deleted photos to have more artistic merit than the older ones they've left. But I'm happy to try and stay within the posting limits of the site. I've seen countless erotic images on this site - especially in the contests - that I believe emphasize erotic genitalia far more explicitly - and far less artistically - than the ones I posted and have since been removed, and I'm not exactly sure how my portfolio got cherry picked (if you'll pardon the expression! lol!), but it is, after all, their site, not mine. So they're free to do as they please, and I'll do my best to try and stay within their standards. The main reason for this paragraph is so you, the model, have a better understanding of the edgy, erotic aura we'll be trying to induce in the viewer through the images we shoot. I just can't show them all here (I'll be happy to email some of them to you, though, if you'd like).

I don't expect you to shoot for free. Just remember that all of your peers are asking for pay, too, and I'm not a sugar daddy, so there has to be a reasonable balance. I've shot all over the country and all over world! From Prague, to Dubai, to Phuket (before the Christmas Tsunami), to New Zealand, Canada, and Mexico! The rates I pay are variable, negotiable, and will be dependent on several qualities. The idea of an "industry standard" is a pure, non-existent myth. Some models merit more pay than others. Where you fall in that continuum depends on your looks, the degree to which you take care of yourself (your health), your skill at posing and figure modeling, ease of communication (that one is HUGE!), your level of experience (basically, your age), the quality of your portfolio, the content we shoot, how your look compares to what the top models are asking, and how much my experience and talent will enhance your portfolio. Don't take it personally. It's strictly business.

Another determining factor is how much I can afford to part with at the time of our shoot. If you wait too long to contact me, or drag your feet on setting up a time and date, my available funds may have already gone to an earlier model. So the time value of money manifests itself in many, many ways. Be smart, be quick, be good.

I, myself, am not trying to make any money off of this, I'm not shooting for high-paying websites, and I'm not looking for girlfriends, either. I simply like what I do, and I don't really care if you don't. But it's nice if you do. :) I may do an art book of black-n-whites. If I do, the title will be Magnificunt. If that offends you, send me a message! You're exactly the model I want to shoot with! lol! If it sells, I'll pay you again and we'll do another one! :)

If you're interested in collaborating, feel free to contact me here and together we can experience what I call The Art of Making Art. It's the best part of what we do and it's the wonderful experience that anyone who merely views the end result of our art will never understand.

I can provide references and more samples of my work upon request.

Retouchers need not waste your time. I do all of my own retouching.
