I have a strong background as an artist which has been a great benifit and a good step forward into becoming a photographer. My traditional work included surrealism and illustration. Which should translate (even though I love to do more traditional things) that I have an ability to think outside the box. As an artist I loved to view paintings of flowers but never saw the sense in me painting a flower like everyone else does.
My background in photography began mostly as a nature/wildlife photographer. I believe I got into photography to get out into nature rather than hiding in a room drawing and painting for hours on end. Showing my work eventually led into various side jobs which has included commercial related photography. Now I want to do more expressive things with my photography which makes a need for models, esp since I dont like photos of myself ;)
I am more than capable of listing myself as a retoucher but I would rather focus that time on the photography I do. I do not count on my ability of doing postwork to make a shot look good, I prefer to do the post work to give mood or to accent a good shot.
I have a wide range in taste and am looking for various types of models for various ideas I have as time permits. If you look in my port you will notice I put some classic type shots as well as edgy/gritty/raw shots. I mostly look to do paid shoots but will consider tf. I have refrences if you would like to ask a model about me.
I am working on a website and plan to have some sections for work with models on it. I have an incomplete page of some other examples of work I do viewable here...
If you have any questions I can be contacted here.
Also, although I am in the Wichita area I am known to travel to KC and in to parts of Missouri and Oklahoma as well.
