I have started a campaign on Kickstarter to raise the necessary funding to launch the Topless New York exhibit, calendar, and book! Please check out the campaign page by clicking on this link, contribute to the project if you're able, and spread the word among all your fellow models and photographers. Thank you for your support!!
Since the New York Court of Appeals's 1992 decision in People v. Santorelli
, declaring that women have a right to be topless in public anywhere in New York State that men have that right, I have been working to try to make an artistic and political statement about that ruling. I am now working on a website which will display my ongoing work with women all over New York State, and I am interested in hearing from any woman who wishes to participate by going topless anywhere in New York.
Though the images are often playful, I take my work seriously, and I strive to improve it. Therefore I welcome any and all genuine feedback, whether it's positive or negative.
I'm a man of my word, and I don't understand why anybody would agree to concrete plans for a shoot and then blow them off. I honestly just don't get it.
You may think that makes me naive, but consider for a moment what that makes you. :-)
As a member of "The List,"
I also accept a number of requests for TFP work with "newbie" models in my area. If you are relatively new to Mayhem, please feel free to contact me about these TFP shoots. I am more interested in (and qualified for) helping newbies expand their outdoor book, but am willing to entertain other requests as well.
As a member of the "4th List
," I am willing to host traveling models in New York City, and I have been cleared by a reference check. If you need a place to stay in Manhattan, I encourage you to contact me, and I also encourage you to do your own reference check.
