About me
I picked up a camera in 2010, the same year I suffered multiple concussions playing basketball.  I spent the next two years shooting photos which did not include human subjects and used the camera to document my journey back to health.  As a result, taking photographs is a meaningful act for me.  I am passionate about what I like and what I want to create.  Of late I have been shooting nudes and I am open to shooting clothed and implied but I prefer authenticity in all aspects of my real life so that is what I strive to capture in my art.  No princesses or warlocks will you find here. 

I am very candid and direct and while my portfolio reflects a certain style I want to create much more.  That being said, I love to laugh and connect with new people so if honesty, intimacy, emotion, creativity, beauty and anti-beauty resonate with you then we are probably a creative match.  I am now looking for things that are more abstract, ethereal and creative than the photos that I have here, though we shall see what comes.  I have a new studio to work with close to the Pearl, prefer natural light and also just acquired some film and Polaroid cameras that I look forward to breaking in.  We can grab some coffee, say hello and talk over ideas.  I love coava on grand, by the way.

At this point I prefer tfp, though that is sometimes negotiable.  I have shot models in the past who seemed to be more interested in the check than the work and that is not my vibe.  I understand that money helps to open doors, but If I am paying you the shoot will be more conventional, boringly provocative/sexual and I will shoot lots of instant photos that could be sold at a later date.  In both cases I shoot for myself and use a standard model release.  Mostly digital with some film and instant photos used as well.  If you are intrigued, send me something and let's talk about shooting the aforementioned amazing photographs.

I like these:

"Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness"
-Yousuf Karsh

"I just think it's important to be direct and honest with people about why you're photographing them and what you're doing. After all, you are taking some of their soul."
-Mary Ellen Mark
