This just in... I now have 1000's (literally) of props available to me for shoots, from the 1920's/30's to current day.

I owned and operated a successful portrait, wedding, and commercial store front studio in Florida. This ended abruptly.
Today, after a LONG sabbatical, I decided a rhetoric return to photography.
Seventeen years ago I experienced a life changing experience of HUGE proportion, in the form of 2 daughters (ages 1 and 3) being kidnapped by their birth mother (yes you read that right). Several years later I was contacted by the state of Florida (while in Indiana ) informing me, my children were to be "ward of the state". I'll make a VERY long story short by saying, I fought for custody and won after 15 months. I raised my two girls, my elder (soon to be 20) has since moved out, and I have my 17 year old still with me.
I have been in IT, as a Principle Systems Engineer since then, until now...
© Me Now,
I am now continuing my true passion of creative, artistic and expression driven photography, in a now digital world. Plain and simple... I am no stranger to technology, I use quality photo gear, OSX on Mac hardware running Adobe products, and do all my own post work.
I came from the film days (35mm, and medium formats ie. 120, 220), doing all my own darkroom film and prints, (yes REAL PRINTS and I still FIRMLY believe in them!) and now LOVE the digital dynasty.
My goals are to succeed in my photographic expression with the use of new technology, lighting and environments, to produce awe striking images and make my mark on the world.
I believe Model Mayhem will help me to achieve this goal in a more professional, and efficient manner, than any other means available today.
