About Me

* I have done most of my work in L.A. and San Diego and Palm Springs - but also in Idyllwild, and parts of the desert.  I'm interested in new/unique locations!!!

* Nudity plays a large part in my work.  I don't want restrictions in what I create and prefer to work with models who are totally comfortable in their own skin.

*  Why?  I do location work that usually can't be preplanned, and is very 'situational.'  It's best to just work with someone who can fit any situation.

* Nude means nude; no towels, shadows, footballs, candelabras or hands.  I will walk away from a stunning image rather than compromise it with props or poses.

*  My website has been online with male nudes since 1994; it was one of the very few to feature frontal nudes back then, and I had to fight to keep it there. 

* I use a digital camera, but usually strive to do the primary composition in the camera.  I tend to work slowly - so patience is required...

*  I want collaboration!   Interaction and participation is what makes a successful shoot. Give me your ideas! Work with me.  I can't be a success without you.

*  I rarely do studio work and typically use natural light.  I am always looking for new/different/unique locations.  (Your suggestions are welcome.)

*  My 'dream model' is one who can see what I'm trying to do and be proactive in helping me create it.  That is the ultimate collaboration.

*  I will never ask you to do anything I would not do - but I'm really, really hoping that you can do it better.  (After all, that's why I am behind the camera... )

*  You look better out of your clothes.  I look better in my clothes.  (After all, that's why I am behind the camera... )  It's usually best to keep it that way.

*  I had a color dark room when everyone else was working B&W.  Now everyone is shooting color and I'm rediscovering the art of B&W. ...Just contrarian, I guess.

About me: late-50s, honest, respectful, good sense of humor and easy to get along with.   I know which end of the camera points outward...  and I have some of the best equipment.  A problem is that I am experiencing some physical limitations these days (bad knees,) so long hikes are not feasible.


MM is the best classroom in the world.  There are a great many incredibly talented people here.


I have had the very good luck to shoot with some wonderful guys - with sculpted bodies and beautiful spirits.  It is difficult to get a bad photo of these guys.
