MORE NEWS BLURB:
Overhead reduction has resulted in condensing my studio into a storage unit. I will bring the studio to you! Once we settle on a theme and style for the shoot, we will pick a location and it will take less than an hour to set up lights and background as needed to shoot.

Always on the lookout for cool industrial locations to shoot an Urban Decay series. If you know of any interesting D/FW locations that fit this description, clue me in and I'll be forever grateful.
If you want to be my Friend, say something (hopefully nice) first. Tag me or comment on one (or more) of my carefully-crafted images before submitting a Friend Request (It's only polite) and then let's see how our "Friendship" progresses...

I Don't Shoot Nudes
I have nothing against nudes, (insert obvious double entendre here) but I find women in clothing so
much more interesting.
Much of my photography is done after dark, when the absence of daylight reveals new textures and characteristics rendering the mundane remarkable. Artificial lighting can be so wonderful under the right conditions. Don't get me wrong... Much of my work is done spontaneously in available light and this was my first love - finding the gems in our environment to capture and share with the rest of the world.
In response to several photo comments I've received, I'd like to point out in advance, the "Glamorous Apparitions" (ghosts) series are not double exposures or Photoshop manipulations. They are all single-exposure images, shown here exactly the way they were composed at the time of the shoot. These are very demanding shoots, requiring more than the usual amount of control from the model. While I was certainly aware of this and appreciated it, I had a new appreciation for the difficulty of holding a pose during a long exposure when we shot my self-portrait with my car. Great work, girls!
My work is evolving into a more "urban" style these days and I enjoy the juxtaposition of gorgeous women against industrial / deconstructionist settings.
Fashion photography for me is all about The Three L's - Lines, Lighting and Legs. Leave out any of the 3 and you miss the mark. I'm a spontaneous artist, shooting when I see the moment, never without at least one camera, in mortal fear of missing that never-to-be-seen-again moment.
For several years in the 60s and 70s I earned my living as a Rock n Roll photographer in parallel with my career as a Recording Engineer up and down the West Coast. I hung up my cameras for almost 20 years before an epiphany in 2006 caused me to go back to my first love.
I am 61 years old (but still a Rock 'n Roller at heart, attending numerous concerts every year) happily married to my mate of 15 years (not interested in "meeting" anyone here) and pursue my goal of creating unique images daily.
If you're a model who'd like to update your portfolio with a fresh perspective -- and you're in North Texas, or you're in need of someone to capture an event or an image in a unique and dramatic way -- look me up and let's see what we can accomplish together.
Projects I'm developing:
(contact me if you'd like to participate)
Glamorous Apparitions series (see image above) are "ghosts" created in time-lapse photography
Business suit series
Sexy Santa's Helper series.
Winter Furry coat / high heels series
Automotive series with either my SRT4, Custom Harley or any number of classic cars belonging to local collectors.
Goth / cemetery series
Rock n' Roll series with guitars (or fantasy knives / swords / firearms as an option)
Urban Decay series
Girls and Cars of Texas (coffee table book)
All are inclusive of cute / hot girls with fabulous legs. Short Skirts / Dresses are always a part of the equation, as this is the look I am composing for.
