interpreting the post-industrial body
Update, January 27, 2016 After a long break I'm once again actively seeking shoots in northern California/southern Oregon and during travel to other locations (see below). Local (Eureka and vicinity) shoots are possible on short notice, other locations may require planning a couple of weeks ahead. Note that most of my current concepts require tasteful nudity, please inquire only if you're comfortable with that. Possible case-by-case exceptions for fashion models with tear sheets.

This profile is intended to showcase my art nude work (and occasionally a few other things).
I'm an art and alternative photographer with extensive experience. I started as a photojournalist and street photographer; even though I now photograph as a creative outlet rather than for profit, that early experience still manifests as a preference for working on location with natural light and shooting in a spontaneous manner. I'm based on the northern California coast and travel frequently.
Currently accepting selective TFCD/TFP.
Who I'm looking for: Models willing to be creatively engaged in the shoot, and interested in creating more than just another pretty picture. Unusual looks are encouraged. I like to work with bright, authentic people.
Current concepts: Most of my current work falls within one of three concepts: On-location art nudes in the altered/human-made post-industrial landscape; On-location art nudes in natural settings; and, in the studio (usually in Oakland) with plain backgrounds, these images tend to be as much portraiture as art nudes and work well for expressive models.
San Francisco/Oakland: July 21-22, and a few days almost every month.
Chicago: July 17-20
