[b]>>Update: Studio closed on 7/11/15.  I am now located in Northern Seattle / Shorline area.  I am only doing paid client shoots at this time. Rare exceptions for TF work.  I will have more book / publishing projects coming up late fall or early winter, look for castings.  If you are looking to hire me for a project, we look forward to your contact

I the 80s and 90s my career in Photography was mixed.  I worked in Rock & Roll for a while.  My work has been in magazines and tour guides for many Grammy Award winning artists and some that, well, just never had a hit.  I also shot for the adult industry doing model photography for magazines and box covers.  You can see some of my Rock & Roll work on my site

Our rates are not the highest, nor the lowest.  We are very competitive for the quality we provide. Our Trade-For work is limited to only our books.  Our area of concentration is model, boudoir, art and commercial print.  We pay models, when we are getting paid by a client or company.  If we are trading our time, so are you, and so will the MUA... if that does not work for you, than sorry. 

I am also available for Photoshop graphics, editing and retouching.  I am a member of the NAPP and working to become an Adobe Certified Expert. I now edit mostly in Camera Raw & PS CC exclusively, I do not use Lightroom or actions, sorry not my thing.  3rd party tools include Alien Skin, OnOne & Lucis.

Our photos are only printed through our lab of choice (BayPhoto) via our site, no exceptions.

Please note, we don't give out RAW images, we don't share contact sheets, we don't give away copyright on our images.  We will pick the images to review, cull, and edit.  We will on occasions give a glimpse of what we shot, but we don't like showing an unfinished product.

Looking forward to creating something remarkable.

I am honored to have worked with some amazing models, makeup artists, painters, MUAs, stylists, and all creatives over the years. There are 100s of models NOT on MM so I will not be listing them here, as it would just take up too much space. In the 80s I worked with dozens Adult Artists, including Nina Hartley, Traci Lords, Nikki Charm,  Annette Haven, Sharon Mitchell, Barbara Dare, Brandy Alexandre, Ginger Lynn, Kristara Barrington, Lynn LeMay, Shauna Grant, Marilyn Martin and more.

About Punctuality Please keep us informed if your plans change or you're running late.  Valid reasons are fine, illness or family illness, legal issues, accidents, etc.  Hanging out with your friends and forgot to show is not valid.  Regardless if it's a TF_ shoot or not, we have allotted time and resources to be there and blocked that time away from paid clients to work with you on that shoot.  If you need to reschedule, that's fine, please let us know as far in advance as possible. Calling that morning for non-emergency cancellations is not acceptable.  What is also not accepted and will prevent us from working with you again on anything trade is if you cancel to go play, hang out, get coffee, hit the beach, too stoned, hung over, forgot I had other plans, slipped my mind, early birthday surprise, road trip, my microwave had the wrong time, my ride forgot, etc. 

Sometime we need to move times too, that's fair, but please communicate.  In the past we have had paid and trade models just never show, nothing.. and may never hear from them again.  It's not a proper way to conduct business or treat others.  Please be respectful and communicate.

My style is my style.  Like it or not it's mine. I have no ego tied up in my work. If you want to work with me because you like what I do, than great. If you prefer another photographer or edit style, than please go that direction.

If we are planning a shoot together, or you wish to shoot in the future, please use any model listed as a reference.  I treat everyone the same, kindness, courtesy, respect, and with humor.  If you don't laugh, please find a different photographer, we will clash and the time at my studio will be dull and boring!  If you're either a paid or TF model and you pull a no show or cancel without notice or valid reason we will not reschedule.  Please show common courtesy and respect of our time. (see above).  Keep in mind I am not trying to date you, I am not going to ask you to remove more clothing for money.  I will not be touching you, without asking first "May I fix a stray hair" or "Can I move your arm".  I will never approach or touch or invade private space.  Unless we are friends, this is a creative business endeavor, not a date.

Here is my view on escorts.  Models are welcome to bring one.  I prefer you bring a female escort. I find male chaperons (boyfriends/husbands) distract the model. Models will not pose or act herself with him there. I will make an exception if we talk in advance.  I don't like surprises.  Also we reserve the right to steal your escort and use him/her as an unpaid worker. I know it's not fair, oh well.  We need free help! Again contact any/all models about my studio presence.   I always have a female assistant on client paid boudoir shoots, no exceptions.   

Model Tips:  If using our MUA(s), please arrive with a clean, fresh, moisturized face. Do NOT come in makeup.  If you're modeling anything cropped or plunging in the back or front, or lingerie or topless please do not wear a support garment to the shoot.  I don't mind removing small lines, but massive lines and buckle marks are an unneeded time consumer.  I stop shooting about 1/2 hour before our time ends.  If you're there from 1pm - 3pm, 1 to 1:30 is prep 1:30-2:30 is shooting 2:30-3:00 is wrap up.

Numbers inside (__) = number of times (more than once) I have worked with model. (Non MM Models NOT listed, there are 100s)  Letter "P" = Published
