I am a full time professional photographer and photographic educator . I've won national awards for individual images and book art. My portraiture has been published in Ebony, Popular Photography and Yoga Journal and for the prior three years, I was the education chairman for the Professional Photographers Society of Greater Washington.
I often hire models for my workshops and Model Mayhem has a lot of good ones. East coast models I have hired and worked with who you would probably know are: Melissa Trout, Amber Gangi, Candace Nirvana, Elizabeth Schellman, Kerry Meadows, Nicotine, and Kerri Taylor. I'm sure any of them would be happy to vouch for me.
