About Me

Create Every Day!

I am a full time professional photographer and photography instructor. Photography has been my sole source of income for 25+ years. I work with MM models for my professional work, for workshops that I teach and for my personal work. I'm always working on personal projects and I need many different models to help make my ideas for images a reality.

The best way to be hired for a project that I am working on for a client is to have worked with me on a personal project. I usually do not recommend MM models to clients unless I have worked with them.

I teach photography classes for the Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Department as well as photography workshops of my own. I need models for these classes and workshops.

I am a Photographer because:

I love it.

It is the only job I ever wanted to have.

I have been a photographer long enough to know I will never do anything else.

I do it because I can, I can because I want to, I want to because some said I couldn't!!!

I believe:

True eroticism is NEVER explicit!

Enjoying what you do is a great way to go through life!

Being normal is a said excuse for not being creative enough to be different!

If it wasn't for gravity I know I could fly!

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF!

What they say:

To be irreplaceable, one must always be different. Coco Chanel

You've got to be able to live up to something, even a bad reputation.
Any photographer who says he’s not a voyeur is either stupid or a liar. Helmut Newton (If you know anything about Helmut you know what he means!)

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. Vincent Van Gogh

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Albert Einstein

There are no uninteresting things. There are just uninterested people. Jerry Uelsmann

I shut my eyes in order to see. Paul Gauguin

Invent your world. Surround yourself with people, color, sounds and work that nourish you. Sark

The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless. Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I work with models of any experience level.

I prefer to meet, in person, with people that I will be working with especially when collaborating on a project. This is not always possible, I know, but I believe it makes for a better shoot.
