Recently relocated from Seattle to the Tampa Bay area. I'm the Creative Director at Creative Loafing. Art direction/graphic design pays my bills, photography is my passion. I generally don't shoot nudes/bondage/lingerie/bikini-clad-girls-on-motorcycles ... just not my thing.
Currently seeking edgier models and MUA's/stylists/fashion designers/costume designers/prop makers/boutiques seeking collaboration and exploration (TFP/TFCD).
Also seeking potential models for future Creative Loafing projects.
My current focus is location/outdoor/artificial lighting (day and night). I most enjoy creating bizarre little fictions utilizing props, costumes and unique subjects.
SPECIFIC PROJECTS (floating around in my head):
MOD: Seeking model who can pull off a convincing "mod" look for vintage scooter shoot.
SPACE: I have a vintage Russian space helmet. Looking for a costume designer who can help me cobble together a space suit for future shoot.
CIRCUS PERFORMERS: Are you the real deal? I would love to shoot with anyone associated with people-only acts like Circus Contraption.
