Mayhem # 2987410
UPDATE June 7, 2015
The name on my account was changed recently in order to preserve its former name for my artwork and prints!
After some time away from MM, I have finally begun posting some of my more recent model-related work, with much more to come. If you would like to see more, or have any questions, please contact me here.
THIS MM PORTFOLIO CONTAINS MOSTLY TEST-SHOTS, all spontaneously-staged. I never saw the clothing prior to the shoots, and most often had never met the model beforehand. Everything was shot hand-held, in natural daylight, and much of that in my studio. I have recently moved from there however, and so am currently concentrating on location shoots until I secure another. Meanwhile, I am making the most of my new access to some amazingly beautiful private and public locations. Come see!
I am a very experienced fashion-photographer who has also worked in many related capacities. I've had studios in Chicago and Seattle, shot runway fashion in Italy, built sets and special-effects for national print-ads and tv-commercials, worked in professional darkrooms, created an art-publishing start-up, etc.
After many years away from both the cameras and the fashion work that once filled my life in places such as Chicago and Rome, I am now taking things more casually here in rural Hawaii, and am most interested in co-creating beautiful and/or arresting photographic art and fashion images.
I am looking to collaborate with any aspiring local and amateur models, stylists, and MUAs, and also with any TRAVELING TALENT [see bottom of page] to co-create some wonderful photos and art.
Alternative-fashion, fine-art-nudes/implied, unusual portraiture, creating a new portfolio of tattoo'd/pierced models, and simply in playing creatively with MAGIC, LIGHT AND ART!
I'm open, skilled, humorous, easy to work with, and DOWN TO SHOOT!
ABOUT TF WORK:
In addition to giving you a nice selection of fully-edited digital versions of your better shots, I will also provide all contributing models, stylists, & MUAs with fine-art-giclee' prints of any resulting images which I may choose to print for myself.
ON COMMUNICATIONS & RELIABILITY:
I can't emphasize strongly enough how important these are to the success of our efforts. PLEASE DO communicate –reliably, clearly, and promptly!
TRAVELING TO HAWAII? . . . COME TO THE BIG ISLAND!
I am v-e-r-y eager to work with visiting models, MUAs, and stylists interested in doing some new portfolio work on the Big Island (near Hilo). Having some experienced talent to work with again would change my life *and* my portfolio! I can help make things easy and fun with some cool, inexpensive, or TF accommodation possibilities, island tips, etc.
