“when i ask if i can take your photograph, it's because i think you're beautiful, interesting, have a story to tell... and i think the world would agree."
ONGOING PROJECTS - always seeking participants:
• scars & their stories (got a photographable scar and a good story to go with it?)
• androgyny & gender fluidity (drag queens, gender benders, trans folk)
• public spaces (public displays of affection in public)
**NOW BOOKING paid shoots and very select TF shoots for APRIL 2014** PLEASE NOTE: that if YOU are interested enough in my work to inquire about shooting with ME, it will be a paid shoot (YOU paying ME.) if you are interested in being a participant in one of my projects, listed above, it will be TF.
i believe in creating images that mean something, not just pretty pictures. my background is in fine art photography (BFA MassArt, Boston 2000). i tend to work mostly in black & white. i like to explore things that are a little outside the norm. scars, androgyny, gender fluidity, public displays of affection and exhibitionism are themes i'm currently working on (see my casting calls listed below). i enjoy working with a concept, and often pairing costumes with settings that contrast and create a sense of wonder. i always prefer to work with models who have a beautiful soul over a beautiful appearance. during shoots, i love to laugh and have fun, but am serious about creating good work! my model's comfort is always my first concern (but i do love models who are willing to push their boundaries in front of the camera). ask any of my models (credited below) about their experience working with me. if you think you'd be a good fit for one of my projects or are otherwise interested in shooting with me, please send me a message.
thanks so much for looking!
my wish-list of photos and themes i'd like to shoot:
