"Do more of what makes you happy"

I retired from making commercial pictures for a living a few years ago, but I continue to teach photo workshops in a variety of places. And I continue to make pictures; all kinds pictures. And if we can make it into "art", so much the better. If you feel that you want to participate in the art making process, welcome to my world. If you have read this far and you are looking to do some serious fashion work, well, I'm up for that too. That's how I made my living for a long time and I'd be delighted to work with you.
Just in case you are wondering....No. I do not pay models. TFC only. It is unfortunate, but there is no money in this business. The GWC's took care of that. I'm here to make stunningly beautiful art with you. And I will work with you regardless of your experience.
Yes, if you are a traveling model and you need a safe place to stay and a meal /a glass of wine and good conversation, we have a place for you. 
I was born near Amsterdam in the Netherlands and lived there for 17 years until my parents immigrated to the USA; I credit my sense of style and aesthetics to my Dutch heritage and sense of craft to my American education.

Note: As of June 2013 I am spending more time in SW Michigan where I have a home and a studio a few blocks from Lake Michigan.

Another Note: I have a lot of Polaroid materials in various sizes that I like to experiment with. If you are a model who would like to be involved in the experimentation process, please let me know. You will receive (digital) copies of all the prints at the very minimum. Let's talk!!

I also teach the nude as a subject for serious art making. I have taught the nude, as well as fashion and lighting, at a variety of schools, colleges, universities and workshops for the past 35 years. So, a few times a year I hire models for the workshops in the few paid jobs that I get; if you're interested, leave me a message here.  My photographs have been published in magazines such as Carrie Leigh's Nude Magazine, View Camera Magazine and Camera Arts Magazine. If you are interested when the next workshop takes place, please feel free to send me a message.
