I take pictures because I enjoy doing it. I also eat meat and drink wine but this isn't DietMayhem.com!
Photography is a passion of mine and is a means for me to sometimes create but more often stumble upon an image that looks cool, creative, inspiring, thoughtful, catchy, cliche, wise, sophomoric or maybe just nice. Photography is NOT how I make a living. Therefore I have complete artistic license to do whatever I want and work with whomever I want. But because it is not my "job" does not mean I don't take it seriously. This isn't just a hobby. It's all I think about when I'm not working... or playing guitar... or making wine... but other than that, it's pretty much all I do!
As for photographic art, I like darker, edgy kind of images but not the kind with gore and dead puppies and sick stuff like that. But more of an image with cool colors, sharp details, curious composition and trademark contrast. Vampire-esque or Underworld type themes will ALWAYS get my interest. Dark but Sexy... perhaps there's a project in that. I'll eventually get around to making a book with hot women who are conservative. Eventually. If interested, PM me. Also looking to cast female Spy vs. Spy themed shoots.
That said, it seems that I am quite fond of composite work with plenty of Photoshop (which I do myself.) Taking landscape or scene photos to set a backdrop while we shoot you in front of a seamless background seems "natural" enough to me and fun. My photo editing ends up having a strongly illustrated kind of look that eventually I will be able to control more effectively. Right now, surreal settings blended with studio work is how I roll... and if I keep eating and drinking like this, rolling will be how I get around. Except at Walmart, because I'm someday going to be sporting one of those electric scooters and get absolutely as little exercise as possible.
Send me a note if you feel like putting some cool photos together or let me know that you're game for whatever and I'll come up with an idea and pay you for your time. Or if you want to add some diversity to your portfolio, I'm up for that too! I do this for the art and enjoyment. When I stop enjoying it, I won't do it anymore.
Hope to hear from you! And if we make plans... SHOW UP!!!!
