About Me

As an artist and a photographer, I tend to take my main inspirations from American and European grindhouse underground movies from the 70's and 80's. I've always been attracted to the dirty, wild and gratuitous films from the likes of Jesus Franco and HG Lewis. While trying to titillate and shock, there was also a joyous tongue in cheek attitude behind their films.

When creating my images, I prefer using extreme lighting, angles, and colors. I'll leave the subtlety to other photographers. I usually try to create a sense of horror or eroticism where less "explicitly" shown flesh and blood amounts to more dread or sexiness. My artistic goal is to create images to show at various lowbrow art galleries, which I do on a regular basis.

I also am really beginning to fixate on mixing body paint with my photography. As a painter and fine artist, I love being able to transform a model with my brushes and sponges, then use my photographic skills to create images even MORE fantastical than I could achieve with only my camera. My current theme I am focused on is horror-movie inspired pin-ups.

*By the way, please don't bother sending me a friend request if you are just looking to pad your friend totals and views on your profile. I only use MM to connect with people I may actually work with someday. Sorry.

** These pics in this port have little to no post-production work done to them, other than basic adjustments. My post-processed mixed media photography and images can be seen at my other MM Port # 1451096 .
