About Me



*****************************************************************
If you are taking the time to read this, I thank you!

Trying to decide what to write in your profile is similar to being a photographer in many ways. You try to put in the essentials, the best of the truth (The best of your work), yet just like your portfolio some only see what they want to see.

It seems the days when a photographer could contact a potential model, exchange a few emails, and arrange a shoot, are gone.

Being attractive and having your boyfriend or a photographer tell you that you are “hot” does not make you a model. Ask any of the models that have had success. The ones that travel around to shoot and make money know that it takes time and experience.

It is easy to claim you are a photographer these days. Buy a camera and for some that is all it takes. Having a camera, a few lights and even a fancy studio is not automatically mean you are professional any more than having a profile on Model Mayhem.

I could go on but it seems few read profiles or pay attention to them. To sum things up is simple. I am here because I love to shoot. I will share my ideas, I am open to the models ideas and if you come to work with me, we shoot what we have agreed on, I will then follow through with what I have agreed to.

I am not here to play games. I am not here trying to date a model. If it makes you feel more at ease you can bring a friend along. Yes I shoot nudes. They are not hidden away on a separate portfolio and they are not all I shoot. Don’t assume that is all I shoot and I wont assume you model nudes (this is where communication and honesty are essential).

I can provide references from models I have worked with upon request. Asking another photographer is not always the most reliable reference. The business has been known to be competitive. I am not in this to compete and you are not a trophy unless you allow yourself to be treated as one.

Anything else you want to know, all you need to do is ask. I will treat you with respect if you do the same for me!


To the Photographers, models and friends that have been continually supportive of me over the years, my sincerest thank you!

" Brian was really awesome to work with. Super laid back, calm, easy going, respectful and verbally very delicate and very swell at making sure your comfortable and not doing anything your uncomfortable doing. "
Precious to me Mayhem #2036499

"I shot with Brian not too long ago and he was fantastic! He took the time to make sure the lighting, my outfits, my hair; everything that was in the shot was perfect. He made the set feel very chill along with predictive, respectable, and professional at all times.
I always bring an escort of some sort to my shoots witch I forgot to run by Brian. But he was understanding and had no issue with it. He informed me that he prefers when models bring someone with them. The model feels more comfortable which makes for a better shoot and images.
Everyone likes to work with appreciably people and he is! I was talking to him and his assistant like I’ve known them forever. He also provided a spacious changing room for me. It was completed with a mirror, table/chars, and refreshments. It made me feel like I was a person to him not simply a model. He even asked me to text him when I got home to make sure we didn’t lose our way. (Kind of like in a fatherly way)
One other thing that I really appreciated about Brian was that he let me put my two senses in which you don’t come by to often. He was kind enough to show me a good amount of the raw images on his camera before leaving. I have been receiving edited stills almost every night since, which I am pleased with.
I hope to shoot with him again and strongly recommend shooting with Brian!"

"I first worked with Brian nearly 4 years ago. He was not only professional, sensible, and laid back; but he also made my session a fun learning experience. He provided me with tips to better my photo shooting experience which I still apply to all my shoots today.

I have had the privilege in working with him several times since then. Each time we create something unique and I am given the opportunity to better advance myself as a model.

He communicates well before, during, and after the shoot, has an eye art (which shows in his work), and provides you with a great experience! Looking forward to what we create next!

"Brian was absolutely wonderful to work with. Always willing to make a concept happen, he went above and beyond every time we shot. He was always professional and got great images back to me in a timely manner! Totally recommend him! Email me any time for a more thorough reference! Peggy Vee, MM#2759

Brian,
Thanks so much for making my trip to Michigan a success! I had a blast shooting with you. I cannot wait to see the pictures. Your professional and go-getter attitude made the shoot run much smoother and the comfortability zone was almost immediate. Thanks again!
Much love,
Carrie MM#83460

Brian was definitely a pleasure to work with. I felt comfortable right upon meeting him. He was respectful and professional  and was great at throwing out creative ideas and giving direction. As a model, I am always more comfortable when given some kind of direction as to what the photographer wants. He took great images and I was very pleased with the finished products. I will definitely work with him again and encourage any other interested models to do the same.  DEE   MM#153738
