I began my journey as a photographer 5 years ago. Today I am a painter who occasionally photographs. I prefer street work and abstractions but if I am formally shooting human beings/models/women I prefer nudes because authenticity is paramount, as I started taking photos after suffering serious brain trauma and consequently pressing the shutter is a meaningful act for me.
I appreciate candor more than affect, and believe that the eyes give you away in the best possible ways. I sound serious here but I love to laugh and connect with new people and if honesty, intimacy, emotion, creativity, beauty and anti-beauty resonate with you then we are probably a creative match. My newest work is on my tumblr, listed above. Also, my fine art work is separate from this profile and if you are interested I might be willing to share that work with you as well.
At this point I am very selective about whom I shoot and prefer tfp but will pay well for certain shoots and I use lots of instant film. I use a standard model release and shoot digital with some 35mm film and instant photos used as well. Take care and be well.
I like these:
"Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness"
"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."
