Welcome and thank you taking the time to read about myself. I have been a full-time professional photographer since 2001. My area of expertise is Female models. However I do shoot men and kids as well.
I want to say thank you and hello to all of the friends, models, makeup artists, stylists, managers, bookers and photographers alike, I have made in this business. Over the past several years I have lost contact with many of you. I hope you are all doing great!
I am primarily a beauty photographer who likes to incorporate fashion and glamour into my images. As you can see on my portfolio on here...I take a minimalist approach to clothing! However I do enjoy shooting fashion if the clothes/shoes/etc that I am shooting are interesting. I am also a very experienced in lifestyle/commercial images (but it doesn't excite me as much as beauty) and made a good living shooting for agencies for many years. I know what agencies want and how to deliver great images in this area (I do this for pay only $100 per outfit). To see my full portfolio please visit http://www.sclesky.com
. I also shoot fine art nudes. Please follow the link of my friends to "Sclesky Art Nudes".
I moved from Kansas City to Miami, FL in January of 2005 to make it big in the fashion and beauty industry. Just as things got rolling good in the Spring of 2006 I moved back to Kansas City. Let's just say it was for a great woman who is now my wife. She is very supportive and loves to help me out when on shoots with me. Since I left Miami my shooting slowly tapered off to where I might shoot a model every few months. I am now looking forward to getting back to shooting more frequently.
Generally looking for experienced models to test with. I will consider inexperienced models based upon look and personality. The only time I will consider paying for a model's time is if it for fine art nudes. Otherwise clients pay the model, not the photographer. Don't be afraid to send a message asking about what we can work out in regards to shooting. Thank you and I wish you the best in your career.
My images have been found on the comp cards of the following agencies: Ford, Michelle Pommier, Green, Wilhelmina, Exposure, Talent Unlimited, Seven Models.

I have shot the covers and editorials for the following magazines: Ocala Magazine(Central Florida), Simply The Best Magazine(South Florida), Beauty Handbook(National).
