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. if you want images that are yours as much as they are mine and that we enter in the creative process together to help define and capture who you feel like being in the moment let's take some photographs. I honestly would love to shoot more men, more diverse people, young old professionals or anyone who just want to let me document them.
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.
