About Me

APRIL 2015 Update:

Currently working on the very beginnings of an erotic-horror Gallery Show with an accompanying photo book and short film.

The project's working title is HEX (to be changed, I'm sure, as it evolves) and is intended to be a Gallery Show with an accompanying photo book and short film.

As I begin to conceptualize and plan, I'm looking for all types of collaborators to be involved in the project. I'll be looking for models/actors, MUAs, designers, stylists, art directors, etc.

If you think you might be interested, I've created an information form for people to fill out. This will help me keep track of interest on the creative side as I put plans into motion. Even if we've worked together before, please fill this out. My brain is crazytown and I don't want to forget anyone.

You can download the form here: … KMWdY/edit

Want to stay up to date with all my 2015 photo, art and film adventures?

I've started a mailing list/newsletter to keep everyone updated on upcoming gallery shows, new image releases, book and music video announcements and info on my upcoming Kickstarter campaign for a darkly beautiful film collaboration with body painter Michael Rosner.

You only get one chance to make a first impression…

2012 Director's Reel:

Ward is currently available for paid commissions including, but not limited to:
Studio Portraits

MODELS:  Although extremely selective, I do conduct non-client photo shoots several times a month.

If I feel your look suits any of my current work, I will generally return emails within 72 hours.  All shoots are considered “Time for Trade”; you will typically start receiving images electronically within 15-30 days.

Hair and makeup is optional–though HIGHLY suggested–and should be arranged and provided through model unless prior arrangements have been made with me.  If you do not have an MUA I can provide one for you at a fair rate.

These images are considered non-client images and cannot be used for commercial purposes (headshots, prints, merch, etc) without permission from myself.  If you are interested in professional headshots/portraits for commercial purposes, please inquire for my rates.
