About me
I have a philosophy behind most things that I do, and my photography is no exception. My goal is to evoke emotions and tell stories by mixing perspectives and subverting expectations. As such, my interest in sensual and sexual photography is for the sake of exploring these avenues of expression and creativity, not for the sake of a gateway to being sexual with you. I am aware that many women are justifiably leery of single male photographers, doubly so if they seem to be seeking a partner. It is critical for me that if people do decide to be photographed by me in a sensual or sexual framework, they do it feeling confident and comfortable that the integrity and mental, physical, and emotional well-being of not only themselves but of myself is paramount. Being a photographer potentially puts me in a position of power; the idea of an abuse of a position of power is abhorrent to me.

When it comes to the products of photography, the photographs themselves, I consider a person's interpretation of them to be an individual way of seeing. With any way of seeing, we sacrifice all other potential ways of seeing. Everything has a cost. As a photographer, I strive to create beautiful lies and let my viewers become artists of their own visual and emotional pictures upon seeing them, and authors of their own descriptions when talking about them. Once I release a piece of writing or photography to the world, I, as the author and artist, die. My process was creating. My product was the piece. Once interpretation begins, so too does a new process in which I have no hand.

I qualify as being a Retoucher and Digital Artist in addition to being a photographer, and would prefer to be contacted via private messages. I am willing to consider TF* depending on the project, but am generally wanting to connect with models and others who see this endeavor the same way that I do: a mutual collaboration for both of our benefits. You give your time for modeling, I give my time for photographing; I do post-processing on photographs after the shoot is over, you do pre-processing on your body before the shoot has begun; we both spend money for travel to where we are going. Neither the model nor the photographer is more valuable than the other, since a model without a photographer will have a significantly smaller audience, and a photographer without a model will have a significantly smaller number of subjects upon which to draw.
