I am interested in working/collaborating with models who are interested in high contrast black and white art photographs of the female figure. I am an architect, father, gypsy, tin toy collector, world traveller, and amateur photographer. A bit of a renaissance man - designer, architect, an avid skier and sailor, passionate about the arts, ballet, dance, and painting.
I am very interested in black and white portrait and studio photography from the 30's-60's in particular the photos of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sophie Calle, Raymond Depardon, and Robert Doiseau. Two of my reference books for art photographs of the female nude are " The Eternal Body" photos by Ruth Bernhard, and " This Is Who I Am" photos by Rosanne Olson. I am also very interested in the black and white fashion/portraits/nude photographs of Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, and Irvin Penn from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.
* Dancers*, I am a huge ballet/dance fan and have been attending performance by the National Ballet for over 20 years. Some of the dance companies I like are Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Danny Grossman Dance Company, Lala human Steps, George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp, and of course the National ballet of Canada. Would love to work/photograph some dancers ( modern + ballet).

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
― Audrey Hepburn
“The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.”
