HELPING WITH AN ILL FATHER, SO REPLIES CAN BE DELAYED. I APOLOGIZE BUT LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU
Hello and thanks for taking time to stop by and read my port and view my images.
Please view my port images and read my bio first,if your then possibly interested in working with me after seeing my work then please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
If your a new model, or even if your more experienced this link has a lot of valuable suggestions to choosing a photographer and staying safe while doing shoots with the photographers you choose off MM or any other website.

I was born and raised in the Sacramento area and have remained here my whole life.
I know how to act professional and provide a safe relaxed environment so I do NOT hit on models I work with or make you feel uncomfortable in any way. MM is not a dating site like some think it is.
Your in a relaxed,fun and safe environment while at my shoots without exception.
I have been into photography semi professionally for over 27+ years.
I am a contributing photographer and staff for many custom automotive magazines and websites that use my work on a regular basis.
I also have had my work published in many publications,advertisements, posters and industry catalogs.
The majority of my projects as you will see from my port are automotive style featured layouts for magazines, promotions, posters, calenders,catalogs,websites or ads.
I am eager to do anything edgy or new, and it doesn't have to be auto related so I can expand my port into other areas
Always looking to do something no one else has done yet! Go that extra mile to make people stop and say WOW!
I prefer "location" shoots because it gives me a variety of looks rather than cookie cutter studio type stuff,just my opinion.
Nothing against studio work, I just prefer location
After checking my port all out let me know if your interested in my style and want to possibly work together?
If interested I will have you fill a "Model Questionnaire", which helps me see your experience and styles you fit best into so I can see what projects I might have you would best fit into?
If your interested in working together please fill out the questionnaire at
but please email me also and let me know your sending it and who you are and attach a photo.
#1 - I don't charge models a fee to work with me on my projects. TF work benefits us both with no out of pocket expense for either you or I
#2- I am unable to pay models up front the majority of the time.
I work with smaller and new publications that just don't have the budget to pay models or photographers most of the time.
But, if I get paid for our work I am more than willing to pay the models.
Look we all want to earn money but the increasing amount of models on MM who have little or no experience and barely 3 images in their port from a camera phone, who aren't willing to TF and need or demand to be paid is humorous.
If I make money I am more than willing to split it with my models but be realistic please.
Look around on MM and you can see the difference between professionals and beginners.
We all had to start somewhere and there is nothing wrong with that. But we all didn't get top dollar from day one, we had to earn our way up the ladder.
But if you are open to TF/CD and the opportunity to create some fun and unique images and also get published tear sheets then you will be enjoy working with me.
This is a good opportunity for new models to build their portfolios at no cost. Or a more experienced model to expand their current portfolio to include a wider array of images styles.
OK, so the most common question asked seems to be about nude work. Answer is yes I do have some projects (not all) that require some type of nudity. And this can include full nudity, topless only,implied nudity,rear nudes, artistic (faces don't show), masks, etc.
But these projects are for models that are interested in one or all of these types of projects only.
Nudity is NEVER required or pushed onto a model, it is up to you which your open to doing.
Pushing a model into an uncomfortable situation never results in good photos so it's a waste of both our time to do that and very unprofessional for sure.
So just because you see nude or implied nudity photos in my port don't think you would be pressured into doing something you wouldn't want to do.
I do NOT do that.
This is why I have you fill out a "Model Questionnaire" so we are both clear prior to working together on boundaries and they will be honored.
I have plenty of referrals from previous models I have worked with I can provide who will vouch for my professionalism when working with my models.Just ask and I will provide their contact information
I prefer like most photographers not to have them at shoots for their opinions and suggestions. But I do realize that they are a necessity for some models to feel comfortable.
If we do work together and you feel the need to bring an escort please feel free to do so I have no problem with an escort.
But please explain to this person that I respectfully request they observe from a distance and refrain from trying to help improve the shoot with suggestions to the model or photographer on how to do their jobs.
Otherwise they are more than welcome. Thank you.
I do 99% of my shoots here in the capitol city (Sacramento,Ca) and Sacramento valley. So no need for much travel for the models.
But if you live out of town and want to travel to Sacramento to work with me please contact me.
I travel to So-Cal, Vegas, and Bonneville Utah a handful of times a year so we could schedule shoots there as well if your close to those areas.
Ask for my travel schedule if this might interest you?
Here are a long term projects I am looking to fill with the right models as models are found that fit these projects:
#1- Centerfold - You always wanted to be a "centerfold" right LOL, the Italian car magazine I am a staff photographer needs car layouts shot for both features and centerfolds.
They want a centerfold layout of a model on a car in each issue. This is a great opportunity to get those tear sheets every model needs to help complete her port.
(Shoot will require model to pose in "skimpy" clothing. And both top and bottom implied images as well. So models need to be comfortable with very little or nothing on)
Contact me now as I am scheduling these shoots far into the coming year and the interest has already been overwhelming
#2- Promotional - These are always needed for manufacturers and websites.
Models needed to model t shirts, hold products,etc
(Type of poses depends on project)
#3-Abstract Nudes- Models must have exceptional body and be willing to model for nude body part abstracts.
No face included in shots. (B & W artistic shots,nudity required)
Fitness models,exceptional breasts,butt, etc a plus.
#4- Public nudity project, if interested email me for more details. This is a project for someone who is a thrill seeker and likes to push the envelope.If you consider yourself this type of person this might be a way to break the boredom of the same old stuff !
Will be unique images that make people talk for your port I promise you!
I only can provide MUA and wardrobe on jobs where the client wants & provides them. But this hasn't really been an issue, just wanted to be up front about it.
Feel free to ask any questions you might have and I will do my best to answer them.
I willing to meet in a public place (Starbucks is my favorite
prior to working together with potential models so we both have a chance to see if we get along well and will work good together?
But sometimes time and schedules don't allow for this I know.
If any of my style of projects interests you, or you have your own vision for a shoot contact me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a "Model Questionnaire" to fill out. It helps me see what type of experience you have and also what type of project interest you that I might have?-
Look forward to hearing from any models looking to create something unique we both can be proud of.
