About Me

Also available to work in Nogales, Sierra Vista, Sonoita, Tubac, and Tucson, AZ.  Occasionally get up to the Phoenix area also.  I can be contacted on Twitter at, Facebook at

I am a semi-amateur/semi-professional photographer looking to broaden my horizons and my photographic eye.  Be advised I take an extremely light touch to editing as I want to get the most out of the camera and model.  To this end I do not own photoshop at this time.  My shoots are night highly structured.  I tend to start with the concept and work from there and allow it to evolve as it goes.  Love to get input from the models too during a shoot. 

Most of my work is taking photos of the skies in Arizona, namely sunrises, sunsets, and lightning, which is now being carried by a gallery in Tubac, Az ( … stId=10589).  Recently I have been using those to create mosaics out of nude photos, which I think make for an interesting piece of art.  Please see my casting call for more info.  I also have a growing list of possible concepts and ideas that I am seeking models and MUA's to work with.  These ideas can be found on my facebook page at … 9777924304

My goal in joining MM is to hopefully find models interested in taking part in my work, and to gain exposure to others in the photography world who can provide information, critiques, and advice based upon their experiences.  I am a geologist by training and have no niche or special focus I want to pursue.  I pursue ideas as they come to me and am willing to photograph anything at anytime just for the opportunity to have the experience and to learn from it.

Models, just to be upfront.  I am not in a position where I can pay for your time.  I wish I was because I know it will greatly limit who I can work with, but that is just the reality of my situation.  I will trade for DVD of all the images captured at the shoot, and all shots that I edit.  I shoot both Canon RAW and JPEG formats at the same time and insist on sharing all the files with those I work with when doing TF.  I have no problem if you decide to edit them afterwards.  I also prefer to try to get to know my models before the shoot.  I find that this helps me with coming up ideas for a shoot.  Sometimes I get ideas stuck in my head, such as working with black light reactive body paint, bubbles, and fog, or shower shots using misting units, that I need to find someone willing to participate in.  With that said, I am happy to photography just about anything you would like to try.  If I accept or extend a Friend Request, it is because I truly would like to work with you. 

I have no problems what so ever if you want to bring someone along for a photo shoot.  Whatever makes you comfortable is fine by me.  I do appreciate a heads up if you do want to bring someone.

Currently I am free on weekends (Friday through Sunday) for shooting.  If you are interested in working with me, please message me here or contact me on my Facebook page

I also have ten years of experience being the official "Unofficial" photographer for my children's middle school and high school cross country and track teams and have over 6,000 photos from running events to my credit, so if anyone wants to do running fitness/lifestyle shots, I may be the photographer for you.  (examples of my work from our family Flickr Page … &s=int)
