About me
Just found a new one:  "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

I spent two years shooting photos without including other people.  I was recovering from head trauma 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, so when I pick up my camera I want to shoot amazing photographs.  Of late I have been shootingn nudes but I am open to shooting clothed work as well, as long as you promise to be honest in front of the camera.  I am looking for authenticity and to see who you are really are, not a faux, sexed up version of yourself. 

That being said, I am actually lots of fun to be around (seriously), love to laugh and want this to be a great experience for all parties, so let's talk and see if we are a good fit for a shoot or two.  I am very candid and direct, and while my portfolio reflects a certain style I want to create much more.  I have a new studio to work with, prefer natural light and also just acquired some film and Polaroid cameras that I look forward to breaking in.

At this point I prefer tfp.  I have shot models in the past who seemed to be more interested in the check than the work, and that is anathema to me.  I understand that sometimes 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.  Otherwise, I shoot for myself and use a standard model release.  Mostly digital with some film and instant photos used as well.  I am open to shooting implieds and clothed work with women who inspire me, but I am selective in all cases.

That is it for now.  If you are intrigued, send me something and let's talk about shooting the aforementioned amazing photographs.  Make sure to be smiling when you do- it is good for the soul.
