About me
i really just have one very simple rule: PLEASE DON'T WASTE MY TIME.  i put a lot of valuable resources and energy into my work.  i have tried very hard to say it nicely, but it just seems that some people don't read...

it should also be noted that I DO NOT PAY MODELS.  sorry.  i used to do a lot of trade work, but i have cut waaaaay back.  i'll still consider artistic collaboration, on a case-by-case basis, if i feel it will improve my portfolio.  but my weekday (mon-thu) availability is limited and weekends are strictly reserved for family and PAID GIGS (occasional exceptions for traveling models).

my focus is artistic nude work and i approach every shoot as a collaboration between two artists.  i’m looking to push boundaries – mine, yours, society’s…  blah blah blah. 

AFTER ARTISTIC PROJECTS, paid work takes priority.  no offense, but my schedule is absolutely crazy and my inbox is full of models looking to shoot fashion, casual and swimwear sets.  i prefer to work with models who are comfortable with nude work, because i find that they are more open-minded and naturally comfortable with themselves. 

PLEASE don't tell me that you don't shoot nudes for trade.  your naked body is no more valuable to me than your face, which is almost certainly what i'm more interested in, in the first place.  if you're willing to collaborate with your clothes on, but charge for artistic nude work, i am definitely NOT interested.  please don't waste my time...

bottom line, i am here to make art.  i do not have a studio.  in fact, i prefer to shoot on-location, using 100% natural light.  i only work with open-minded, creative individuals.

my work is organic.  it's not about fashion.  it's definitely not about clothes.  it's about capturing beauty and harnessing the energy of a moment.  i fall in love with beautiful faces, every single day.  i usually consider things like makeup a distraction.

my motivation is simple:  to show the world what i see.   i'll keep doing this as long as there is beauty out there to inspire me.  and, as cliché as it sounds, i tend to find beauty in places others might not…

btw, nothing turns me off more than someone who assumes that his/her time is more valuable than mine.  if you message me about your "reasonable" rates (or tag me about your "workshop"), i will delete and block you.

if you think you have an exciting idea for a collaboration, i'm all ears.  i want to work with like-minded individuals who can inspire me and push our combined creativity to new heights.

i'm an artist and a professional.  i conduct myself as such.  I AM GOING TO CHECK YOUR REFERENCES.  i STRONGLY encourage you to do the same.  please feel free to contact any/all of the models i've worked with.  i provide links on every image, specifically for that purpose, and they are expecting to hear from you... 

i'm more than happy to work with independent and freelance models, as well as models represented by LEGITIMATE agencies (factor, ford, bmg), on all levels and styles of work.  i'll even work with beginners, if you are considerate, passionate and responsible.  but please don't ask me to contact your "manager" (especially if he's your boyfriend) for a trade shoot.  unless i'm getting paid, i'll assume this is a collaboration between artists and i insist on dealing strictly and directly with the "talent."  the only exception is models under 18 years old, in which case i am happy to correspond with parents.

your comfort and security are important to me and i encourage all models to bring a FEMALE escort when we shoot together for the first time.  you cannot bring your boyfriend to the shoot.  i'm not willing to put up with the potential drama and it's just unprofessional.  sorry.  please check out my blog, to read my escort policy...  and feel free to leave comments (i especially love the pissy ones).

terms and conditions are always negotiable, and i’m happy to share all usable images, but i require a release form for ALL trade shoots.  no exceptions.  if you are a minor (under 18 years of age at time of shoot), i require a signed parental consent form.

i'm always ridiculously busy, but i attempt to be flexible and accommodating.  i don't just shoot nudity for the hell of it.  i'm open to most other creative ideas and concepts, as well.  i might even be willing to take on some of your projects, if you'll work with me on mine.  however, please don't ask me to shoot zombie, gore or anything involving gratuitous violence, blood, guns, animal cruelty, or real fur.  it's just not my thing.

i didn't think i'd have to state this, but i will only shoot nudes with models OVER 18 YEARS OF AGE.  if you're not 18, don't even consider nude work or anything that isn't age-appropriate.  anyone looking for that kind of work should be reported to the moderators (and the FBI).  c'mon people...

if you’re still awake, and have any other questions, please just ask.
