Current status: Starting back up again after a hiatus. My priority goes to TFP. I'm comfortable paying models if they have a commercial look but my budget is small.
Usual profile text follows...
Hi, I'm a full time photographer and artist who specializes in fine art figure work. (I do other kinds of photography as well but it is kept separate for professional reasons.) I work both in the studio and outdoors. I also do nude portrait work, especially maternity portraits, contact me for rates. I sell lab-made art prints and also make and sell prints made with a variety of traditional alternative methods, including platinum prints (see the website for details).
I use a standard commercial release. If you are interested in working with me but not in having your pictures sold or online ask me about my reasonable portrait rates.
I'm in the east bay - in San Leandro near the Oakland border and near the San Leandro BART station.
I've stopped keeping a list of models I've worked with on this page because I've been here for years and it got unmanageable, but if you have the urge to contact somebody I've worked with you should be able to easily enough from picture credits and tags where it's clear they've worked with me.
