* 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 "sterile" 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.
* Working with Models' *
I am responsible for the models' I work with and am protective of them while we're shooting. More likely than not I've approached you about doing the shoot. So, I'm the reason you're on the shoot to begin with. That makes me responsible for you. I'm responsible for your comfort, safety, security and general, all around, well~being. While we're shooting, WE WORK AS A TEAM ! I more than welcome any artistic/creative input/suggestion/ideas from the models. And we'll do our very best to realize those ideas and bring them to Life. I provide a professional, comfortable atmosphere that's open to true and honest collaboration. WE WORK AS A TEAM. And I look forward to working with as many of you as I can.
* My Shoots *
I like to shoot for at least 2 1/2 hours. That's a little longer than most other photogs' shoots, but I prefer quality over quantity. The extra time allows us to take the time, no matter how long it takes, to get the most out of every shot we do.
For "FR" requests.
I'm inclined to only put those people in my "Friends" section who I already know, or have worked with.
