Full-time photographer, happy to shoot with anyone desirous to bare heart, mind, body and soul to inspire others... and to inspire oneself! I'm a big believer in self-acceptance and self-challenge walking hand-in-hand, and I believe art has a unique power to instill these values. When we truly love ourselves, we are able to love others better, because we believe we are something worth giving. And we achieve this by comparing ourselves only to our own potential, not to anyone else. Be the best you!

You can hire me to add unique images to your modeling portfolio, or to advertise your music or your clothing line or other products/services, or simply to express yourself on a more-personal level. (Ask me for my rates, depending what purpose my image work is for. I'm a full-time photographer, and you paying me for my work will enable me to keep doing what I'm passionate about, using art to make a difference in the lives of others.)
My aim is to make it all a rewarding experience, and I love helping people connect with where they want to be! Want to know what I look for in a model? It doesn't matter if you're very experienced or have never done a shoot before at all; what matters is an adventurous spirit, self-respect and respect for me.
[A word about nudity: It's my favorite. I see bare skin as a metaphor for honesty, vulnerability, confidence, courage and unadulterated truth. These are values I wish to instill in society, and I believe art provides a powerful way to achieve this in a manner both redemptive and inspiring. Nevertheless, I want a model to do whatever communicates self-respect *for them.* So if you believe in these things, my goal is to give you a safe and artistic place to explore these concepts on-camera. But if self-respect (for you) means covering your body, then I would not want you to go against your beliefs. I am sticking to my own beliefs, also, by refusing to do sensual imagery with minors or with married women, no matter how much money they offer me. There is an intimacy inherent to the artistic process, and these guidelines are useful for me in recognizing and honoring that. Furthermore, mutual respect also means being communicative, and showing up on-time for shoots. Let's truly work *together* as we work together :-]
