About me
I'm a fine art photographer - that is my way of writing "I am an artist"....I create the work in my heart and not out of need, but rather want, so I'm able to approach my art differently.

I'm a professional.....if that is even a word to use with artist, but it is so in the sense my work has been published in commercial publications in the midwest, New Zealand, & London and have worked with some well know photographers in NYC (Fall 2008).  In addition, I have held the position of Director of Photography for a Cincinnati magazine for 2 years.  I've had several one-man shows at private galleries and in University galleries. My photos have been juried into regional exhibitions. I have worked with a wide variety of professional and aspiring models. And, I'm always looking for new models.   

Here's how I work:

TFP = I like to start out this way with models I haven’t worked with before to both help them expand their portfolio and mine as well as establish our working relationship - depending upon experience of course.   We usually will spend a day with you (the model) shooting headshots, portfolio and comp card work for you (tfcd/tfp). You (the model) then owes me a day to be a subject in my art work. (NOTE:  Escorts desired for all shoots). 

PAID = My work is fine art, so when I do hire models for paid shoots the rates will be adjusted as the work is not commercial based.  My work is typically sold to individuals, Corporations, or private collections or used for juried competitions.  But if a project does involve publications (magazines, etc) compensation will be aligned to market prices.

Nudity =  A portion of my body of work involves fine art nude.  This fits well for certain models and not for others…no worries…there are plenty of shooting opportunities and ideas to go around.  So for those models that do this type of work we should talk about the body of work, rates and go from there….  (NOTE:  Escorts required for all nude shoots - absolutely no exception.....). 

My photograph, "Abandon" won an award in the Indiana University Whitewater Gallery competition in late 2007.   

**UPDATE 2013:  I now have my working studio up and running in the Rivers Arts district in Asheville, NC.**
 
**FYI:  Currently I'm looking to ramp up shooting several bodies of work this spring and summer in the mountains of WNC near my hometown of Asheville - looking forward to create that art and working with folks here on MM***
