I'm off hiatis ! Let's book & shoot ! Who's in ?
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my profile and port.
If you're interested in working with me, I can be reached at: email@example.com. Please include your MM# when writing.
I DO NOT charge for shoots & I DO NOT pay models. In extremely rare cases I MAY cover SOME of the travel expenses for models. Usually those I have worked with in the past. Or, if I just HAVE TO HAVE a shoot with you !
I shoot on the weekends in some of the abandoned buildings of an old psychiatric center about a half an hour's ride on the Metro North train from NYC. Shoots last around 2 1/2 hours.
A few standards:
* Age verification of all models
* Signed models release
* No Escorts
* Please be professional. No Flakes.
** I really hate having to put this in here, but apparently, it's needed. By "Professional", I mean, don't express interest in working with me or on the projects, then after a couple of emails/messages/texts, fall off the radar, and/or, take weeks to get back to me. I'm not here to hold your hand or be your babysitter. It's not only a waste of my time, but down right rude too. If you want to be treated as a "professional", you have to act like one. **
* Cell # of models I'll be working with.
* All work is on a *TF* basis only. Compensation is in the form of a specified number of edited images.
* I welcome working with models of all experience levels.
*NOT RECOMMENDED* PM me for details
* My past history in photography *
I've had 35+ years of both professional and academic experience in photography. See credits below. I currently work on my own projects. Full nudes in the Artistic and Fine Art Nude genres, with a smattering of Artistic Erotic (see port for an example), are currently being done on the projects.
~ The Projects~
*Breast Cancer Project*
This is a fund raiser project for breast cancer. A book is being put together on it and all models' images used in the book are duely credited. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to a breast cancer research foundation.
What I'm looking for out of the models working on this project is their own expressions on the subject. Using the project as a platform/foundation for photographically illustrating their perspectives, ideas, thoughts, reflections, perceptions, reactions and even their fears about breast cancer. Models working on the project will be bringing those to the table for the shoot.
~A book has already been published on the Project and any future work will be limited for the time being~
I shoot solely on location in some of the abandonded buildings of an old psychiatric center. This project centers around the patients who used to be housed there. It's my contention that the patients, no matter what their disability was, were, to the core of their souls, as normal as you and I. That is, what they thought and felt inside were the same normal thoughts and feelings as we have. But due to their disabilities, those thoughts and feelings never came out as normal. It was the thin veil of their disability that made their thoughts and feelings lose a lot in translation on their journey out to us. The project looks to interpret and photographically illustrate the ways their disabilities hindered them in expressing themselves on a daily basis. Their thoughts and feelings cover all aspects of their personalities, including their sexual sides too. As normal people on the inside, they too had their sexual desires, longings and lusts. Thus, the "sterile" Erotic genre of the project.
For "FR" requests.
I'm inclined to only put those people in my "Friends" section who I already know, or have worked with.

"Amazing time working together!!!! Hope the weekend holds up so we can shoot again!!!"
"I had a great time exploring an abandoned mental hospital in Tarrytown with MGP photography. The images were distinct from the mood of the rest of my port, and he got me my photos promptly. Thanks!"
