Photographer. Broke Fashion Lover. Cat Lady. Swordplay Enthusiast. Music Fiend.
I'm inspired by leather jackets, old motels, America, birthmarks, Gustav Klimt, messy hair, the Hollywood sign, freckled shoulders, Kubrick, Magritte, dahlias, Big Sur, carnivals, Lolita, grainy photos, Marie Antoinette, bitches, Jane Birkin, confidence, Nabokov, Walt Whitman, Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, lacy nothing , go-go boots, multiple exposures, F.Scott Fitzgerald, Salvation Mountain, Hearst Castle, pastels, red lips & gold teeth, bleached eyebrows, glitter, blood,, Sylvia Plath, rock stars, tattoos and all other affectations.
I'm here to find models who are easy-going, beautiful, and willing to play dress up for a couple of hours.
I think working in a stress free, creative space with models is the best way to create great images, which is why I am really friendly and "laid-back" when working with new models. I want to find people who will go along with my ideas and also inspire me.
I'm inspired by people like Autumn De Wilde, Tim Walker, Richard Avdeon, Hedi Slimane, Nick Knight, Frederike Helwig, Angelo Pennetta, Ryan McGinley, Cass Bird, Eleanor Hardwick, Cindy Sherman, Juergen Teller, David LaChapelle, Venetia Scott, etc. I am obsessed with fashion photography from every decade, and I aspire to be as good as these brilliant artists who inspire me.
Aesthetically, my work is widespread. I love shooting concerts as well as portraits and editorials. My head is a jumble of images and inspiration.
Feel free to contact me at all if you're interested in working with me in any capacity, and head to my Flickr page to see all of my photos.
