I began my love affair with photography in 1991 and started honing my chops shooting b&w 35mm of sports & editorial work while developing and printing my own work. (boy, I kinda miss the good old darkroom days)
In 1999, I began working professionally as a director/cinematographer & since then I've made my living as a filmmaker shooting commercial, music video, documentary and narrative work. Recently, with my first purchase of a digital SLR back in 2010 my passion for still photography has been reignited.
I am available for paid assignments, but also open to collaborating to expand more into other genres. I joined MM because I am interested in working with models, stylists and hair/make-up artists to do something really creative & push the limits.
I am also always interested in networking with photographers, stylists and hair/make-up artists for commercial work as I have clients who request still work in addition to my film/video and would love to create a referral relationship. (I've been asked to shoot stills also, but honestly--to do motion or still work right you have to be focussed on only one so I'd rather build a relationship with other photographers)
My main request is that we chat/message prior to any project to make sure we are on the same page. I'm a busy working professional; I will respect your time and expect you to do likewise. I have no problem with escorts coming to the shoot, but will not tolerate any drama. Seriously, let's keep the drama in the photos, not behind the scenes.
Projects that could pique my interest to do TF work: Pinup has been a passion for me since I first enjoyed the work of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargas and Olivia De Berardinis. I really love creating dramatic b&w glamour shots in the Classic Hollywood style. I also would love to create some cosplay photography evoking the spirit of fantasy art by Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo and Michael Whelan.
If I friend requested you or accepted your friend request and you are local to the South Bay then I am open to any TF/content trade offers.
