i am just out here on my own, trying my hardest to present those that i work with as honest, real, humble and human as they will let me. i seem to be always attempting to capture who my subjects actually are under the make up and behind the faces.
i struggle with photography as a commodity or even thinking about it on a commerical level for myself . i struggle with calling what i do art. i don't think what i do fits into a neat definition. it isn't fine art, it isn't glamour, it isn't portraiture. i am just a dude who is trying to take some photographs and create something that may hold up over the years.
I have got my own space I love to shoot in located in jersey city 4 blocks from public transportation (hoboken lightrail). I tend to be a bit manic & all over the place shooting with multiple digital cameras & various instant film type things. I tend to air of the side of natural looking images, no air brushing no warping, I want to focus on reality based images. I like to think I am well references & pretty easy to put in some work with.
if you like what i do and want something like it in your portfolio, please be willing to consider teaming up to create it. I have a fairly limited photography budget so if you are looking to have me book you (as in pay your rates) I suggest getting in touch as much in advance as possible. I think I am pretty straight forward and no nonsense so please do not hesitate to get in touch. I think I'm easy going fairly easy to work with and hassle free ... let make some photographs!
as you can see from my portfolio I have worked with a wide variety of mostly free lance models. I like to believe i am fairly well referenced and can provide contacts if they are needed for reference.
