About Me

Thanks for visiting my profile. Despite the logo, I have no web site (yet).

If you’re interested in working with me, please read this. It will answer many of your questions.

If I send you a friend request, it means that I like your look, admire your work and/or would like to work with you. If you’re in the US but not in my area, it may also mean that I expect (or hope) to visit your area at some point in the future. When looking for a model or planning a trip, I begin with my Friends list.

While I’m not trying to build the world’s largest Friends list, I accept all requests (as long as they're from people who are at least 18). I consider it common courtesy – and I never know when it might lead to a terrific shoot in the future.

This is my profile for artistic and fashion nudes and implieds. The number of my primary MM account is 2475887. All of my portfolios are works in progress.

I am interested in working with ballerinas and other dancers, gymnasts, competitive bodybuilders, pregnant models, and more Asian and Pacific Islander models and models with darker skin. One of my favorite lighting styles works best with darker skin.

You don't have to pose nude to shoot with me (but it might help if you want to be in *this* portfolio). I shoot most genres.

I have a list of 12 male models who have volunteered for m/f couple shoots up to and including nude.

As time permits, I'm open to selective trade work that will benefit my portfolio(s) as well as yours. One way to get my attention is with an irresistible concept or idea, but a killer concept isn’t really necessary with artistic nudes – just artistry.

If you're interested in a shoot, don't hesitate to contact me. Lately much of my trade work is with models who want to be published or in galleries. I request a release for all trade work. It’s a cliché, but my paid work always comes first. I like to eat.

My first job in photography was a summer internship with a metro daily newspaper at age 15 in 1962, just before I started high school. I've been shooting ever since – professionally until 1981, when I took a job that involved hiring and working with photographers (but not shooting). I've always known that what I really wanted to do was professional photography, and in September 2011 I took the plunge – again.

Over my lifetime I've had hundreds of photos published in magazines, many thousands in newspapers, several exhibited in galleries and one on the album cover of a 12-inch vinyl LP record that reached #7 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. I've recently started shooting for publication and exhibition again.

A photographer can't guarantee publication. Only an editor or publisher can guarantee. Most don't, because they like to keep their options open until the issue goes to press. Those who do guarantee reserve the right to change their minds (whether they say so or not). Photos that are pending publication may be in limbo, as far as portfolio use is concerned, for a few months to six months or even longer.

Typically I retouch only the best 1-2 percent of photos (typically about 6-15 images) from a shoot. I don't allow others to retouch my photos (with the occasional exception of a professional working under my direction), and I don't send out unretouched photos.

Many people on MM, when they decide to do a shoot, schedule the shoot and then figure out what to shoot. To me that’s backwards. I want to plan the shoot – genres, concepts, looks, location (or studio), moods, wardrobe, props, etc. – with the model before scheduling the shoot. That way everyone knows what we’re shooting, where, in what order, what is expected and what to expect.
