About Me

OPENING MONOLOGUE
******************************
The plain fact of the matter is that I love to take pictures and create images that I am proud to say, "I did that." Since I do attempt to get what I want in camera and shy away from excessive post production, turn around can be very quick. I'll shoot head shots and other normal stuff very cheap, and yet you still get my attention to detail and my passion for creating a beautiful image.

It is no secret I like it weird. Weird is for me a journey into the unknown... a journey of discovery... to find something new. But just as there are only seven notes in the octave, the image canvas is limited by its borders. So that is the challenge... to find the infinite within the finite space.

I am always looking for a muse.... someone who is wanting to work with me on an ongoing collaborative basis.... someone with whom I can create fun and inventive images so we both come away with a great satisfaction. The bottom line.... I get to continue my creative journey and you get many, many images.

One final note... remember it isn't about me and it isn't about you... it is about the art we create together.
***************************************************************

I am primarily an art photographer, but I also shoot nature photography for enjoyment, and of course I can shoot all the boring standard stuff such as head shots and portraits. I will however not create a boring image. If you want flatly lit, deep depth of field, go to Wal-mart or Sears portrait studio because I won't do that.

I am a graphic designer, videographer, video editor, voice over actor, and Director professionally. With my partner Steven Elliott Hendrix (2363789), I shoot just about anything. My purpose for being here on Model Mayhem is to extend my scope and reach out to potential clients, but primarily to others who share my desire to create art -collaborators. In photography, I rarely shoot anything but TFP any longer, so I am always willing to consider any offer to shoot. Although I will take on any assignment where I am compensated, collaboration is reserved for those who share my strong desire for new and exciting concepts. Contact me with your visions and concepts. If your ideas excite me, we will work together. (WE... YOU AND I... will work together on your concept. I will not steal anyone's concept to shoot with another person. I will take inspiration from seeing the work of other artists, but to steal a concept or idea to me is a sign of weakness.) You will notice snakes in some of my photos. These were my snakes, but I have adopted them out to a new home. I still have access and know many individuals with snakes, so snakes can be borrowed or hired for shoots with advance notice. You may contact me through SnakeHunters@gmail.Com or here on Model Mayhem. The genre checked in my profile are preferred and/or would want more of this style in my portfolio. If you have a concept within one of them that interests me, I will be happy to work with you on a TFP basis. I am experienced in shooting pretty much anything, so if hired, I will shoot whatever you want or need. Final note... no railroad tracks... been done too much and it is illegal, so don't even ask.

Typically, unedited images are not released. Number of finished/culled images are agreed upon prior to shoot. Please do not ask for a turn and burn immediately following the shoot. You want to look your best and so do I. If you shoot with me, whether TFP or pay, you will ALWAYS get print and web versions of the edited shots. HOWEVER, you should know that I do try to get the image I want in camera, and I do not do excessive editing except when the image is to be rendered as digital art. So DO NOT expect me to use Liquefy or other post production tools to make you something you are not. I believe all forms and shapes and sizes are beautiful as they are. I will remove anything temporary such as blemishes, and mascara flakes, etcetera, but anything that is permanent is part of your life story and subsequently part of you.

***************************************************************

With regard to style - I don't have one. You can review the images in my portfolio here. You can review the images I post on my FaceBook pages and my websites. If there is anything you should take away from your review, it is that I am constantly evolving in my craft. That is my nature. If you have a concept for an image, or a series, I am sure I can bring your concept forth into the light. Just know that what you visualize and what I visualize may in turn create something wholly new and different from what you or I originally conceived. For me, that is the whole point, that the art of creation has a life of its own. For collaboration, if you are not comfortable with this enigmatic, organic creative process, I am not the photographer for you. I like to say, "The art is that which is created in the space between us."

***************************************************************
Regarding publications.... my work has been published on numerous occasions, but I don't chase publications. Quite frankly I don't care about such things. I don't need it to validate myself or my work. Most of the publications have been happenstance in that a friend or colleague needed images for an article or biographical piece. My work has also been published in various creative magazines and journalism publications and while this is very gratifying, it is not really important to me. If we work together and you decide to submit my images for publication, I only ask that full credit is given, and if there is any remuneration, it is shared. I will always respond in kind.

***************************************************************
Steve and I have a studio in Irving, Texas. Contact me if you would like to come see the place. In addition to the studio being our shooting space, we do rent (and barter for the use of) the space.
Contact me if you are interested.

P.S. I should also mention that I do video production. My mainstay in video is shooting and editing TV commercials, independent TV shows, and small venue concerts, but if you want to shoot a modelling promo video, we can do that, however I will not use unlicensed music for your video. I am also a voice over actor.
