About MeI am a 54 year old married guy who comes to photography out of a fine arts background. I started using photographs for references for paintings and it seems to have grown from there. So I am firmly into the Artistic genre!
I am not a professional, nor am I trying to make it a profession, I have a career and am happy in it. This is me indulging in artistic passion!
As to style, I love history and great art, especially the the 17th century Dutch Masters, as well as Botticelli, Velasquez, and Titian. I try to use those works as inspiration for themes. I also work in the living history field and love to incorporate themes and objects from the 16th and 17th centuries, and middle ages into shoots. If a model has an interest in these subjects, that's a huge bonus in my book!
I hire nude models! I will do my best to pay a fair price for your work. My favorite themes are nude-in-nature, figure studies, and anything that has an element of story-telling. I am especially delighted when a model has thoughts and ideas to add.
I am also happy to shoot TFCD for new models, I enjoy doing 1 hour introduction shoots. We shoot some whole figure shots in your choice of wardrobe, and shoot some portrait/headshots. We try to find a nice location that is convenient to both of us. You get some images for your portfolio and I get some more experience. And we both get a chance to network! (I also don't hesitate to write nice things on your profile if I enjoy working with you!)
My goal is to try to work with great models and to build up a nice collection of work, just to see how good I can get. I especially enjoy working with artistically minded people and am happy to help out in creative projects.
I am also always trying to find artist's models as well, I sponsor the occasional life drawing group, and hire models for my own projects as well. Check for a artist/painter profile under my name to see my work, but contact this profile for modeling work.
So check out my port, comments always appreciated, and let me know if you'd like to pose for me.
CreditsI have worked with the following MM models:

I have worked with other non-MM models who are on my port, if interested in working with them please PM me.
I have had some disappointing interaction with some MM models, if you PM me I'll discuss that, but not here. (on my black list)
